Penelope's Story...
Hi there! My name is Penelope, but my foster mom calls me her 'Lucky Penny'. I had demodex mange (don't worry, it's not contagious!) from being stressed out at my old home. They didn't take very good care of me and when I got this skin condition they decided to dump me at the shelter instead of doing the easy treatments. It's okay though because EDCR saw me and knew I had the potential to be a beautiful butterfly once my skin is all better. They pulled me out of the shelter and put me in a great foster home where I got the TLC and skin treatment I needed to get better. I get to wrestle with my canine foster siblings and run around the back yard, I even go play at doggy daycare. It is so much fun! I also love to snuggle up on your lap or underneath the covers for a nice long nap. My foster mom says I keep her lap nice and toasty warm on cold days! I would love to find a home of my own where I can give all the love I can to my family. Is that home yours? Each dog in our rescue is in a loving foster home, where they can grow, play, and recover from their time spent on the streets or in a shelter. If you'd like to meet an adoptable dog, please fill out an application on our website (! ONLY APPROVED APPLICANTS WILL BE ALLOWED TO VISIT OUR AVAILABLE DOGS. Every Dog Counts Rescue (EDCR) is a non-profit organization founded to save the lives of dogs in high-kill shelters in the Midwest. Dogs facing death row are pulled from shelters and brought to Indianapolis where they are fostered and receive veterinary care. They are then transported to our rescue partners in areas of the country with less pet over-population, or EDCR searches for loving homes for them locally. EDCR believes that truly every dog counts, regardless of age, breed, injury or disability.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Penelope, a Indianapolis Boxer puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Boxer for sale in Indianapolis, or seeking a Boxer puppy from a breeder in Indianapolis.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Indianapolis already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Indianapolis breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Boxer breeders who help with Boxer rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Indianapolis paves the way for another one to be saved.
