Indi got a new name for her new life, leaving her old life as Jean behind her. Roughly 10 years old, this beautiful Boxer-Shepherd mix has been through a lot, and somewhere along the line one of her eyes was damaged, presumably from an old injury. She was found as a stray and taken to the Smyth County Animal Shelter in Virginia on June 27th. Sadly, Indi’s life was at risk in a small rural shelter, and she was scheduled to be euthanized on July 13th.
Shelter animal advocate Kathryn Haddock reached out to RADAR on July 12th to see if we could help with Indi. She was in need of vaccinations, a possible spay, testing for heartworm and Lyme disease, and a check on her eye. We provided an offer to assist with Indi’s vetting costs as an incentive for a rescue to pull her. The very next day, and just in time, All Mutts Matter Foundation in Delaware, an organization that is primarily focused on helping senior dogs, committed to taking her!
Indi’s initial vetting took place on July 22nd. Her foster shared this with us: “She’s gorgeous and so well behaved. She chooses a cushy chair over her pillow bed and my bed! Indi is a lovely gal who is quite spunky for her age! She is always by my side and loves to steal the comfy chairs. She’s starting to put on some weight and is fitting right in with my pack.” To see more photos of Indi, click here.
RADAR paid all $252 of the initial vetting costs for Indi.
UPDATE! All funds for Indi have been raised! Thank you!
