Story
Little Maddie is estimated to be at most 8 years old, a terrier mutt of some kind. Honestly, her age is unknown but we believe she's at most 8/9 and as for her breed, your guess is as good as ours. What we do know is this. Maddie has exceeded everyone's expectations. Maddie loves all dogs as long as they are friendly toward her. Maddie is great with cats too she minds her business and will not bother them but if they cuddle with her she's happy. She is truly just amazing. Nothing is more precious than the love from a broken dog kept whole by her human love. Maddie needs that 1 chance to at a forever home. She needs a home with at least 1 balanced social well mannered playful dog. She loves people too, just takes her very little time to allow them into her heart but when she does. WOW! She's a superstar with dogs and cats and children. Maddie loves to eat, relax, snuggle, and cuddle, she will steal your pillows as they are her favorite! Maddie loves car rides and simple adventures. Maddie can be very playful and an even bigger snuggle bug. She loves the teenagers that walk her daily. Can this be Maddie's year? Can her happy forever find her, finally? Maddie is house and crate trained. All dogs are sspayedneuter, receive all sets of age-appropriate vaccines including lepto, corona, and rabies, are dewormed and fecal tested negative, microchipped including registration, and kept current on monthly heartworm and flea tick prevention upon adoption. Updated: 4/11/2023 www.animalhousesanctuary.org We believe training is an ongoing process that needs to be worked on daily. New issues that arise, need to be addressed and/or rewarded. Understanding that continued training is a lifetime commitment, is very important. Out-of-state adopters are welcome at the adopter's expense. Meet & Greets are required before proceeding with an adoption. We DO NOT ship any of our pets.

Story
Jasmine LOVES all humans including children if all ages. Jasmine first came to us in 2015 as an 6-month-old puppy. I was volunteering at a shelter evaluating dogs for other rescues to pull. When Jasmine instantly caught my attention. She was sad and depressed and her eyes showed that she had given up. She wasn't even on my list to evaluate. I had decided right away I was taking Jasmine with me and literally had to peel her off the concrete floor. Jasmine has been adopted or had a trial adoptions 9 different times. Each time she was returned through no fault of her own. Once she was attacked by the other dog in the home, and other times she was victim to breed stereotyping and returned due to HOA demanding or pressure from the family to give up a “vicious dog”. Other times it was due to unforeseen medical issues arising in her family (not Jasmine’s health, but within the family that adopted her) and she was returned because they could no longer care for or focus on her properly. This time, after 4 years, she is returning to no fault of her own. It’s no surprise the past 2 years have been brutal for many and sadly Jasmine’s mom hit hard times and lost it all. Even while homeless bouncing from motel to motel and couch surfing with friends and family. Trying to keep her family intact. This affected Jasmine as she's a creature of habit. She has done everything she can to keep Jasmine, but the inconsistency of a home is taking its toll on not only Jasmine’s mom but Jasmine as well. It wasn’t an easy decision, but ultimately it was determined best for Jasmine that she return to AHS. Jasmine is heartbroken and needs time to decompress. She sadly also has a few health issues we need to get straightened out, including the fact she is heartworm positive. Jasmine is an amazing dog who loves children. She is a vocal girl who will tell you what she is thinking and has a sound for each of her thoughts. She is only 8 years old. Keeping her is not possible or fair as her emotional need is prominent. She is good with cats and dogs but lately, she's been struggling. She loves children and all humans immediately. You can feel the love from the moment you meet her. We won't give up on her. Please give her a chance. You won't be disappointed. Updated: 3/25/2023 www.animalhousesanctuary.org We believe training is an ongoing process that needs to be worked on daily.

Story
Meet Tonka Tank. Also known as Mr.T Who is or soon will be a year old. Tank is a sweet, easy, playful, well-rounded active fun lovely person, just a good happy boy. He can be timid and a bit unsure but if you are confident he will be too. Tank loves his walks as much as he loves his toys. He walks pretty nice on a leash and I dare to say, almost perfect. Daily walks, some toys, and plenty of affection are more than enough to keep him happy. Tank has excellent manners but remembers he is still just a puppy. He is crate and house-trained, and good with people and other dogs. I will cat-test him upon request. With a little guidance and effort, Tank will continue his way to becoming the best family dog. Tank is a very simple happy happy-go-lucky goofy excited boy. His bark is deep and it adds to his size and people feel discouraged. Though, he, truly is just a big dork who is just as insecure and unsure as those who are of him. Tank is smart but not in a challenging way. Tonka Tank is fully vetted, and up to date on all age-appropriate vaccines, neutered, dewormed, chipped, and comes with all paperwork for proof. A foster, or best his forever home wanted.

Story
Hi! My name is Nala and I’m a ~7yr old 38 pound pit mix full of energy and love for everyone I meet. I am up to date on vaccines with a clean bill of health and spayed. I absolutely love toys/bones/playing fetch, am very food/treat motivated, and when I’ve burned all of my energy, I will gladly cuddle up under a blanket with you! I need someone who can manage my strict potty schedule, as I have trouble holding it for longer periods of time especially after I’ve eaten. I am crate trained and don’t mind being in the crate most times, however I am a Houdini and need a more heavy-duty crate for when you’re away. I get along well with smaller dogs but do need a considerable amount of time to learn my place among dogs bigger than me. I’m a small gal! I am fostered in Roachdale and my adoption fee is $250. Text my mom at 317-370-7726 if you would like to meet me!

Story
Miracle Margo, our longest resident, had moved to a new foster home and was acting as if she could get along with some dogs. She was (and still is) a sunbather that was co-existing with chill dogs but a JEALOUS streak reared its ugly head when attention was being given out. So she packed her belongings and is back in her original foster home with not as many perks and privileges. She enjoyed the puppies at the temp foster too, as her foster mothering skills were in full bloom. This 3-4 yr old girl just needs a family of her own and to be the center of attention, as in no other pets. She wants to be your companion, sunbathe, get belly rubs, and to play tug. Her adoption fee is $250 and she is fostered in Roachdale. Contact Terry to meet this doll 317-946-1316 The one photo shows how far she has come as she was pulled from a shelter after being found as an emaciated stray. She had to have intestinal surgery to clear debris out of her GI due to her rummaging through trash to survive, thus it was a Miracle that she pulled through in her dire condition. Now she needs the perfect family to cherish her and keep her safe.

Story
Duke is estimated to be about a year old and is believed to have been dumped in Indianapolis in late 2022 before being found in early 2023. Duke is the sweetest dog and is always ready to party! He can be a little nervous at first but warms up very quickly. He wants so badly to be a good boy for you and your best friend! He is super affectionate and loves giving kisses. He does jump and is VERY energetic, so he will need some training to be around smaller kids but does well with them temperament wise. He loves cats (a little too much) and adores other dogs but does tend to play a little rough. Duke’s adoption fee is $250.00.
