If you are interested in adopting an ARPO pet, please visit our website, for details about our fees and process, and to complete our Adoption Application.   ARPO limits adoptions to within 50 miles of Indianapolis.  We do not have a shelter; all pets are in volunteer foster homes.  Hi, I'm Radley.  I was found abandoned at a park in southern Indiana and now I'm looking for my forever home.  I'm a beautiful boy who loves other dogs and does OK with cats too.  I am pretty shy with new people and I will need a home that will be able to be patient with me while I learn to trust them.  My breed mix is anyone's guess.  I'm around a year old and weigh about 35 pounds.  I've likely still got some filling out to do but will probably be a medium sized dog.   I'm crate trained and working on housebreaking.   I'm also neutered, microchipped, current on my shots, and HW negative.  If you're interested in meeting me please fill out an application and my friends with ARPO will be in touch! If you are interested in adopting an ARPO pet, please complete the online Adoption Application.  If you would like to donate to this pet's care, please click here. February 29, 2024, 4:45 pm
