Featured Pet Of The Week

Baby, the red heeler has been to the vet for her checkup and they declared her healthy! For a dog that has been on the run for 5+ years, she is heartworm negative and is quite fit for an older dog. The vet felt what they thought was a spay scar so we believe that she has been altered. Can't even begin to imagine this dog's history! She enjoys being in the house and has even started going into a crate of her own free will. She will play with the other dogs and shows no aggression whatsoever to anyone. She is still fearful if you approach her too quickly so it's wise to go slowly so she won't flinch or shy away from you. This dog's new home must have a secure fence since we are concerned if spooked, she would run and revert to the lifestyle she has had for the last 5-6 years. She will not come when called at this time. Who knows, down the road, that may change. Right now, we realize that Baby is still a work in progress although she has astounded us so far with things she must have learned at some point in her earlier life.

Here is a beautiful dilute tortie named Misty. Spayed female about a year old and she is ready to be adopted by you ! Contact Sue at 812 820 1680 or

"Baby" red heeler mix
7 yrs   Spayed Female

Baby has been on the run for several years going back and forth across highway 31. People have been feeding her for years and her coat is thick and pretty. Unfortunately, no one was able to touch her since she would stay just out of human reach. Finally, she was caught and brought to the shelter where she could get in out of the weather and away from fast moving vehicles. It will take awhile to gain her trust but we are looking for someone who would be willing to take her into their family. Fenced yard is a must.
Now in a foster home so we can learn more about her. She jumped into the vehicle like she had been in a car before and she walks just fine on a leash. Actually appears housebroken and loves being IN THE HOUSE!!! She is very laidback, sweet and well-mannered. She gets along well with all dogs and is even starting to play! Contact

"Daisy" pit mix
2-3 yrs   spayed female

looks like she has been a regular breeding machine but now, those times are over and she's ready to become a pampered pet! Please help!!!!! Happy girl! Has been a housedog but needs a nice fenced yard to run in so she can get rid of all her energy! Can go over a 4 ft fence by jumping over just like a deer so needs a high fence! Wants nothing more than someone to spend time with her. She absolutely loves to go for a ride in the car and is happy as a clam in the front seat looking outside. Daisy is a great girl and would like someone who is as active as she is and loves to walk, jog & run! She would also love to be able to go on a car ride with you every day! Give her a squeaky toy and she will be your friend forever!!! This one is easy to fall in love with so if you have the right requirements, give us a call.

"Laramie" pit mix
1-2 yrs   neutered male

FOSTER HOME SAYS THIS ONE IS ABSOLUTELY A WONDERFUL DOG AND WILL BE YOUR FRIEND FOREVER!!! Laramie, neutered male pit/heeler mix, was found as a stray and apparently no one is looking for him. He is a strong boy but quite friendly and seems fine with other dogs, although he might be best eating alone. Gets so lonely if he doesn't have a FRIEND TO PLAY WITH! Will even play with a cat! Walks pretty well on a leash and very lonely without people to call his own!! Needs a few manners to not jump up on people but he just wants the loving! Once you start rubbing his belly, he just melts! 57 pounds. Contact
