If you are interested in adopting an ARPO pet, please visit our website, for details about our fees and process, and to complete our Pre-Qualification Form, and return it to ARPO limits adoptions to within 50 miles of Indianapolis. We do not have a shelter; all pets are in volunteer foster homes.

Meet Dahlia - Dahlia is a beautiful tabby and white mix and is just now making it to the website because she has had a hard time living. Thankfully, she is totally healthy now though and ready for her new forever home and we hope that will be with you and your family if you love your pets like Dahlia should be loved.
Dahlia and her brother came home from the animal shelter at the age of approximately 4 weeks with one of ARPO's experienced fosters, but neither Dahlia or her brother really seemed interested in their food. So, we moved them to another foster that had a nursing mom kitty in the house. Still, neither of them seemed inclined to eat and when they did, they threw up which is very unusual in a kitten that age. We took them to the vet and Dahlia's brother died during the night the first night. After much intensive care, Dahlia eventually got better, but then tested positive for feline leukemia. We decided it was probably not accurate since she'd been so ill and decided to wait for her spay and re-test. At 4 months, she was re-tested spayed and thankfully, Dahlia finally seemed to be well.
Because Dahlia spent so much time going back and forth to the vet (which was no fun), she is not comfortable and gets very upset when picked up and headed towards the car. Otherwise, she is a loving little girl that likes attention and sleeps with her ARPO mom at night. She gets along well with all the other kitties at the house and plays just as intensely as any of them.
If you are interested in Dahlia, it isn't likely she will be at adoption events because she's so frightened out of her comfort zone, but we would be more than happy to allow you to visit with her in your home to see if she's the "one" for you.
Please contact ARPO (317-774-8292) and they will forward your message to her foster mom.
