New Arrival Spotlight: Cedric

Posted November 10, 2018

Cedric at Loving Heart

Meet Cedric, the newest arrival at Loving Heart. We rescued him on November 9 from Indianapolis Animal Care Services(IACS).


IACS discovered that Cedric and five other dogs had been living in an abandoned house for weeks. Many of the dogs were trapped in crates, and all were malnourished and starving. After IACS rescued them, five of the dogs were able to go to the adoption floor at IACS, but Cedric needed the attention and help only a smaller shelter or rescue could provide. That's where we came in.

Cedric's "freedom ride" from IACS

Cedric is still a puppy, only about 10 months old. He weighs around 28 pounds and has lots of muscle wasting. He is very weak on all four legs and might have some neurological issues causing him to wobble; however, that doesn't stop him from being the sweetest, happiest little guy a person could ask for.


It will be a long road to recovery for Cedric, but we will be there for him every step of the way. Stay tuned on our Facebook page for updates of his progress!

Reggie Needs Help

Posted November 5, 2018

Reggie 2018

Our long-term resident, Reggie, has oral plasmacytoma (a type of cancer but not very aggressive). Surgery has been done to remove a cancerous tumor in Reggie's mouth as well as a couple teeth. Reggie's cancer is slow-moving, so he probably still has very many good years ahead of him.


If you would like to donate toward Reggie's ongoing care, you can drop a donation off at the shelter or make an online donation at All help is greatly appreciated.
