#292185 Darwin 💔SAD  UPDATE💔 (Cross-posting) IACS Rescue:  I just received word from the shelter that our parvo boy didn't make it. Thank you to everyone who shared him and pledged for him. Run free sweet boy. No more sickness. No more pain. 10 months old, 30 lbs. We received a call to come out and pick up a stray dog someone had found. When we arrived, the lady said she had had the dog for sometime now, and it was housed with her own dog in the backyard kennel. Our officer said the dog was so sickly, and skinny and filthy. We brought him back to the shelter, where he tested positive for parvo. We have started him on IV fluids, but he is unable to stay here beyond tomorrow.

#90272 Corbin German S25ONLY! HIT BY CAR - HAS HIP DYSPLASIA, BUT NO OTHER INJURIES! HAS $255 IN PLEDGES! 10 months old,  62 lbs. Corbin is a young guy who arrived as a stray after having been hit by a car. We have done x-rays, and found he has hip dysplasia but doesn’t seem to have any injuries. He does have hygromas on elbows. Our vet notes: right hip subluxating more than left= hip dysplasia present. no degenerative changes yet will need meds/surgery long term for hips. hygromas present on both elbows- clear to yellow debris aspirated - recommend doggleggs for compression and padding.- no surgery or medication will help these. Corbin is a young, silly guy who loves to play. He did great with other dog - eager to meet, loose & wiggly, just wanted to play, tolerated other dog playing rough with him. Corbin is HW negative.

#288748 Kashi Pit Bull Terrier Mix RESCUE ONLY! MAY BE BLIND! HAS $340 in PLEDGES! 6 years old, 45 lbs. Kashi and a friend were left chained in a yard with no food or water. Both were emaciated and brought to the shelter. Their court hold is up (after nearly 2 months) with no owner coming to claim. Kashi is now in need of rescue. She is blind. One eye has corneal edema and scarring. The other eye has cataract. Kashi walks with confidence though and will run into things full speed ahead! She really gets excited when going for walks and loves people. She will hop her front legs up to give hugs and kisses and has become a staff favorite! We think Kashi would do better in rescue, where she can find someone familiar with caring for blind dogs. Kashi is HW negative.

#290275 Caroline Domestic Short Hair SENIOR Female RESCUE ONLY! CONFISCATED WITH 30 OTHER CATS! HAS $190 in PLEDGES! 12 years old.  Caroline was confiscated from horrid conditions along with nearly 30 other cats (including Coolidge who is also on rescue only). She arrived anorexic and dehydrated, and with respiratory infection. Her URI seems to have run its course and she is no longer on meds. She will need a dental with extractions. She is fairly timid here but able to be handled.

#291400 Precious American Bulldog Mix SENIOR Female HAS RESCUE COMMITMENT!! 14 years old, 70 lbs. Spayed. Poor Precious came to us after her owner lost his home and had to move in with family. Precious has lived with her owner for 14 years! She is so shut down here and will barely come out of her kennel. She was nervous when I met her, but staff say she is just darling when they are able to get her out and visit someplace quiet. Owner said she get's along with other dogs and was friendly towards kids and strangers. She is stiff and a heavy girl, so the kennels are very hard on her old body. She should be considered URGENT and in need of rescue ASAP!!

#289587 Kitty Kat Pit Bull Terrier SENIOR Female RESCUE ONLY! LONG TIMER! HAS $435 in PLEDGES! LOVABLE! 11 years old, 60 pounds, heartworm negative. she loves affection and treats, sleeps under the desk, and is a very good girl. She loves to be with people and sticks close, like a Velcro dog!   Kitty Kat was surrendered because her owner can no longer physically care for her. She has lived in an outdoor kennel next to another dog, and the two got along at the fence. Her owner thinks she may be losing sight and hearing. She has some dandruff and hair loss, scabs on her tail, and her ears are crusty and thickened. She has some swelling in her left front foot and a stiff gait. In spite of all that, she is a happy girl who is very active for a senior. She was very curious to sniff everything in the room, but did eventually decide to just kick back and relax.

#290560 Songbird Mixed Breed SENIOR Female MEDICAL RESCUE NEEDED! HW POSITIVE! RESCUE ONLY! HAS $650 in PLEDGES +  FINANCIAL COVERAGE OF HW TREATMENT! 9 years old, 65 lbs. UPDATE: Songbird is now perky and eating dry food and hot dogs. We are so happy she has started to eat! She is still coughing but seems to be on the mend. We still hope to find this senior girl a rescue, so she doesn't have to spend too much time at the shelter. Songbird was initially reported to have been abandoned when a tenant moved out. She was very skinny, had no food or water for days. She was brought to the shelter a few weeks ago. We have been trying to treat her severe URI/possible pneumonia at the shelter, but she is not improving and today we ran out of IV antibiotics. She is still on IV fluids at this time. Songbird is not eating, she is coughing and having mucoid nasal discharge. She is a very sweet old gal and has been cooperative for medical treatments and handling. Her temperament test last week said "Very sweet lady. Nice on leash. Timid at first, go slow. Warmed up and sought attention. Wanted to be close and leaned in for affection. Took treats gently. Perked up when meeting other dogs outside". Songbird is HW positive. She should be considered VERY urgent and in need of rescue ASAP!!

#290778 Flo American Bulldog Mix Adult Female MEDICAL URGENT! ANOREXIC AND HAS DIARRHEA AND SEVERE URI! RESCUE ONLY! HAS $160 in PLEDGES! 2 years old, 73 lbs. Flo was found wandering in front of a vet clinic. She had likely been dumped. Her microchip was not registered, and no owner came to claim. She is anorexic, having diarrhea and has a severe URI. She is on IV fluids, but we do not have appropriate IV antibiotics to treat her here at the shelter. It would be in Flo’s best interest to be treated at a full service veterinarian. Vet staff say she is a very good girl, but hard to read—she doesn’t show much emotion, but has not tried to bite for handling or medical treatments. I haven't met her personally and received this info from our vet techs. Flo is HW negative.
#290763 Edith Pit Bull Terrier Mix SENIOR Female RESCUE ONLY! HAS $190 in PLEDGES + $500 to AN ALL VOLUNTEER RESCUE!  10 years old, 74 lbs. This beefcake is Edith. She is a very special gal and we all just love her. She arrived as a stray and has very yeasty, inflamed skin and ears. She has been suffering like this for quite some time we imagine. Her ears are stenotic and she has hematomas. She is inflamed and missing fur around her eyes and all feet. Our vet staff think she may also have dry eye or conjunctivitis. She is on several meds here at the shelter in hopes to give her some relief. Edith is a sweetie who loves going out for walks. She seems housetrained. Very affectionate gal. Edith is HW negative.

#289456 Coco Akita Adult Female RESCUE ONLY! ABANDONED ON A 3rd FLOOR BALCONY SKINNY AND DISHEVELED! RESCUE ONLY! HAS $155 in PLEDGES + SNSI Spay Certificate for an Indiana Rescue! 6 years old, 62 lbs. Coco was abandoned on a 3rd floor apartment balcony. Owners had been evicted and never came back to get her. Coco is very skinny and her coat is unkempt and disheveled. UPDATE: One of our volunteers gave Coco a spa day complete with pawdicure. She is a sweet gal and visits nicely at the cage front. We evaluated her for the adoption floor. She is testy about having her legs touched and did whip around and pulled away from some other handling we did. She also was not a fan of us looking at her teeth. Coco does know sit and takes treats nicely. When introduced to another dog, she gave a warning growl and was nervous and did not want to engage. 

#265327 Lovey Domestic Short Hair SENIOR MALE RESCUED! 10 year old, neutered. Lovey was surrendered by his owner because he has chronic diarrhea and does not always use the litter pan. Owner said they have tried several things and just can't manage it anymore. Lovey was adopted from IACS in 2017, and notes say he had trouble with diarrhea when he was here before. Lovey is a very sweet kitty who seemed to really enjoy my visit today. He snuggled up to my hand and leaned in for pets. He is dehydrated and has been given fluids here. Our vet recommends blood work and special food for now, but further diagnostics may be needed. Lovey lived in a house with another cat and a dog. He is said to be friendly and social with visitors.

#289964 Butterscotch Labrador Retriever Mix Adult Female IN IACS FOSTER HOME!! RESCUE ONLY NEEDS HW TREATMENT ASAP! HAS $260 in PLEDGES! 4 years old,  30 lbs. Spayed. Butterscotch was found in a backyard with one tether to a kennel and the other attached to a power line. She had very little room to move, and her friend was chained with lots of tangles and dragging around an old lawn chair. Conditions were not safe, so dogs were brought to the shelter. Butterscotch was found to be HW positive. She was going to go to the adoption floor and was sent to be spayed. The vet clinic said they found worms/microfilariae in her abdomen. This is not common for the heartworms to migrate, but the prognosis is not as successful it seems as with regular HW treatment. She is going to need consult/chest rads and perhaps other testing before she can have treatment. Her appetite has decreased with a URI, so we have her in our medical room right now to monitor. She is very sweet and seems depressed and a bit shut down. No issues with handling her per the vet staff. She did not want to come out of her kennel when I visited with her, and later I saw a volunteer carrying her out for a potty walk.
We consulted with a vet who recommended Butterscotch start heartworm treatment NOW! Is there a rescue who can help?

#181636 Sadie Pit Bull Terrier/Dalmatian mix? SENIOR FEMALE AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION AT IACS! 12 years old, 57 lbs. Sadie was abandoned in a house, and no owner has come to claim. She is a very friendly gal and seems to really like people and affection (and treats!). Sadie has an ulcerated mass on her paw pad causing her to limp. It seems very painful for her. Sadie is also HW positive. We hope to find her rescue quickly as the mass is likely to continue to be painful and perhaps get worse being here at the shelter and having so much moisture on the floors here. She should be considered URGENT and in need of immediate rescue!!l safe. Hoping to find her a spot in rescue ASAP! Tootie is HW negative.
#289519 Cesar Rottweiler SENIOR Male URGENT MEDICAL! HAS INFECTED WOUNDS ON BACK LEG! OWNER SURRENDER! IN FOSTER HOME/NEEDS RESCUE! 9 years old, 73 pounds, heartworm negative. Cesar was surrendered by his owner when he and the other dog in the home got into a fight. Cesar was not the aggressor and was badly wounded on his back leg. We have cleaned the wounds, which are infected, and have him on antibiotics. Vet staff were able to handle him, but he is really nervous here and hasn't had much of an appetite. We hope to get him to rescue ASAP for any further treatment he might need!

#291722 Gloria Pit Bull Terrier Mix SENIOR FEMALE RESCUE ONLY!  HAS $180 in PLEDGES! 9 years old, 73 lbs. Spayed. Gloria arrived as a stray. She is a GLORIOUS old gal who is chunky and adorable! Gloria has a crooked look to her and may have had some past head trauma. It doesn't stop her from loving life. She is still active for her age and ready to get out and see the sights. She has a fun personality. The person who found Gloria took her to the vet and got her on eye meds. She was unable to keep her because she went after finder's cat. Our vet has determined Gloria has severe dental disease and will need a dental soon. Gloria is HW negative.

#291504 Gabriel Pit Bull Terrier SENIOR Male RESCUE ONLY! HAS $20 in PLEDGES +SNSI Neuter Certificate for an Indiana Rescue!  8 years old, 71 lbs. Gabriel was found as a stray. He is an older guy with stiff back legs. He is a bit bedraggled with thinning hair and possible ear issues. Gabriel is a nice boy. He is very alert and happy in his kennel always up at the front to see what is going on. He walks well on leash. Sort of a silly personality. He makes me smile and want to hug him! He does like affection and seems happy to meet new people. Gabriel is HW negative.

#291812 Sophie Min Pin SENIOR Female RESCUE ONLY! HAS $20 in PLEDGES + SNSI Spay Certificate for an Indiana Rescue! 10 years old. 29 lbs. This big, hefty, wonderful girl is my new office mate. She is crusty and itchy and very overweight. I have asked the vet to examine, and I have concerns she may be a thyroid gal. Sophie was very scared at intake and would not let anyone touch her much. Once I have had her in my office, she has really come out of her shell asking all the time for petting and jumping up on me to play. She loves butt scratches and sitting on my lap. She meets new people slowly but soon realizes that she can get more butt scratches if she has more friends.

#291814 Jonnie Min PIn/Chihuahua Mix Small Adult Male HAS RESCUE COMMITMENT! 6 years old, 10 lbs. Jonnie was actually named Bonnie, but I have confirmed he is a male. I wonder if his owners thought he was female? Jonnie is a fantastic little dude who loves affection and wants so badly to be held and loved on. I placed him on rescue only because his friends were and also because he is HW positive and will need treatment. Jonnie and friends Kamilah and Sophie were surrendered because of landlord. They do not have to go to rescue together and may do better apart.
