Devito's Second Chance

Devito AKA "V" came to his furever home Tuesday the 26th! He first caught our attention at Indy Mega, just curled up in the back of his cage. V has been the most docile, fun loving, treat loving dog! He NEVER barks (even at door bells) ands has the most gentle playful attitude! He LOVES being home with his own bed, his own toys & even a room to call his own! It's truly amazing the personality that comes out when an animal comes home. 

- V's Family

We want to hear your happy adoption tails. 
Paws of the Month
Meet Blizzard
This girl is as bright as a fresh snow in early morning light. 4-year-old Blizzard is not enjoying her second stay at the Humane Society for Hamilton County. She longs to leave the kennel behind and run free, chasing butterflies and receiving love from her humans.

Blizzard would prefer a home with larger dogs to play with and no cat. A few fun facts about Blizzard - She's super smart, putting ivy league grads to shame. This girl knows sit, stay, shake, come, and down. You can always spot Blizzard - she's the one walking around the shelter with a stuffed toy in her mouth. Once Blizz picks a favorite toy, it's by her side forever. She never goes anywhere without it!

Meet Blizzard today and add some sparkle and extra extra love to your life.

Meet Tai
Tai's story is a heartbreaking one.  This 9 year old, handsome boy has been surrendered to the shelter FIVE times through no fault of his own - due to his family moving or having allergies. And now, Tail spends his time tucked quietly in his bed, often hiding from the world. We cannot even imagine his sense of sadness in being back at the shelter yet again. 

Tai is shy at first but will find his way in to your lap before long.  A few whisker lickens go a long way in winning his heart.  He is very affectionate--often burrowing his head under your arms for comfort.  We simply must find his forever home--his heart can't take it anymore--and neither can ours.  

Please come visit Tai today.
