Happy Tails

Chloe the Boxer mix

February 8th, 2011

With help from IndyHumane’s medical team, Chloe’s up and running again and has found happiness and her forever home. Not even losing a limb could slow her down!

Dear Humane Society of Indianapolis,

We adopted Chloe (formerly known as Lilly) Thanksgiving weekend in 2009, and she has fit into our family as if she was the missing link that we needed in order to feel complete.

Chloe is a tripod, but she barely notices the lack of her fourth leg! Though she takes wider turns, she runs a faster straight line than her brother Jake.

She adores her older brother and has even become pals with the cat (both adopted).

When she came home she did not know how to navigate the stairs. We carried her for the first month, then one day she just "did it" and mastered the process instantly!

Chloe's fantastic nature and curiosity is amazing, considering the rough start she had in life. She is such a happy dog; her silly enthusiasm will make anyone smile!

We can't thank you enough for rescuing her and providing the excellent surgery she needed to survive. Chloe is such an enormous part of our lives; we are so lucky to have her with us.

Warm Wishes,

Stephanie, Keith, Jake, Chloe and Bella

IndyHumane typically invests $600 - $800 in every dog and cat who enters our shelter, though for animals like Chloe, the cost of care can be substantially more. Your charitable contribution will help save the life of an animal like Chloe.

Miss Daisy Maxine

October 3rd, 2016

I moved to the Indy area in February of 2016 after graduating college and starting a new job. I was very lonely down here, since all of my family and friends lived elsewhere in the state. My awesome boyfriend, who does live in the area, and I discussed getting a cat from IndyHumane to keep me company. We had visited before, and I had wanted to adopt a kitty, but the timing was never right. Finally, in early April, my boyfriend and I came to IndyHumane in hopes of finding the perfect pet.
