Shelters LostandFound

Hoosier Lottery Partners with NWI Shelters

Share this post

INDIANAPOLIS (Sep. 5, 2013) - The Hoosier Lottery's new Lucky Dog Scratch-off encourages Hoosiers to "scratch a lucky dog."   In doing so, the Hoosier Lottery hopes to bring awareness to animal adoption opportunities and the importance of spay and neuter programs in communities across Indiana.

The new Lucky Dog scratch-off game features photos of ten adoptable dogs from Indiana animal shelters; three from the Humane Society of Indianapolis, three from the Humane Association of Clark County and four from the Allen County SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.)

The Lucky Dog Scratch-off featuring the adoptable Indiana pups is available at approximately 4,000 Hoosier Lottery retailers around the state. 

The Hoosier Lottery is partnering with more than 65 Indiana county Humane Societies and animal shelters to sponsor adoption events around the state beginning in September.  The adoption events will culminate in late October with Indiana's biggest adoption event ever.

The Hoosier Lottery will be providing Lucky Dog tickets to partner shelters to give to those who adopt animals throughout the fall, while supplies last.  In northwest Indiana, the Hoosier Lottery is partnering with the Humane Society Calumet Area, Jasper County Animal Shelter, Michiana Humane Society and SPCA, Newton County Animal Shelter and the Porter County Animal Shelter.

Each individual $2 ticket offers the chance to win cash prizes up to $10,000 and contains information directing players to log on to HoosierLottery.com/LuckyDog to learn more about animal adoption in northwest Indiana including how to donate winning and unscratched tickets to benefit local animal shelters. 

As a partner, the Humane Society Calumet Area was given a limited amount of scratch-off tickets to hand out to adopters during this time of the game. The adopters will be given a chance to win $10,000 from the Lucky Dog Scratch-off game. The Humane Society Calumet Area is located at 421 45th Street in Munster.

Each ticket will also include mention of the Lucky Dog of the Week picture contest on Hoosier Lottery's Facebook page which is open to all Hoosiers 18 and older.

Additional information about all the Lucky Dog initiatives, including a list of all partner shelters and specific events, will be available at hoosierlottery.com/lucky dog .

The Hoosier Lottery reminds all players to play responsibly. Must be 18 or older to play.  Gambling Addiction Referral Line: 800-994-8448.

Romeo Updates from HSNI

6/8/13:

Romeo had surgery yesterday and he is doing very well. His ear has been repaired and the piece of skin hanging off his left eye was removed. He was also neutered. I visited him today and he looks wonderful. He is so happy you wouldn’t even know he had surgery. Dr. D from the Munster Animal Hospital said that even as he was coming out from under anesthesia that his tail was wagging. The staff at the Munster Animal Hospital has been working with him; He knows how to sit, shake paw, lie down and stay. He is a very bright boy and will be looking for a “forever home” soon.

6/1/2013:

To all who have donated to "Romeo's Rescue Fund" I want to say thank you. The kindness everyone has shown Romeo from New York to England, Italy to Argentina has been so heartwarming. The human race can be so amazing! I visited Romeo today and he is doing extremely well. The wounds on his face are nearly healed and he will soon have surgery on his ear.

As the director of the Humane Society of NW Indiana, I realize we cannot save them all, but Romeo has proven to be very special. Through all his painful treatments he has maintained being a beautiful, sweet and trusting creature. How many of us humans put through what he was put though would have the same attitude towards the human race?

We needed to save Romeo not just for Romeo's sake... but for ours. There's a saying I have always liked and have tried to live by. "You make a living from what you get. You make a life from what you give. What you do for yourself dies with you. What you do for others and the world is immortal". It’s want being alive is about…. to make a difference. Thank you again. Betty Clayton ~ Executive Director, Humane Society of NW Indiana.

Romeo continues to improve!

The very serious wound on his nose that had bone exposed is now healing over. He is still on antibiotics and will be for awhile.

He has a great appetite and has gained 7 pounds. The swelling on his face has decreased substantially and his wounds look significantly better. He just received his vaccines and most likely surgery will be done on his ear next week. He is still a happy boy and loves everyone. We will try to have pictures of the handsome boy on Friday.

5/24/2013:


Romeo is responding very well to treatment and is getting better and stronger on a daily basis. He is eating well and gaining weight. His wounds are healing and the puncture wound in his sinus area is doing much better and may not require further surgery though his torn ear and injured ear canal will require more surgery

Everyone at the Munster Animal Hospital, where he is now being treated really loves him. He was up at the front desk area last night hanging out with the staff and he now knows where they keep their treat jar!

It doesn't matter who the person is... he has a "wag of the tail" for them. He still has a long road to recovery but he is doing well and has a great attitude. He seems to know that there are a lot of kind people out there who are thinking and caring about him.

We will have pictures coming soon!!!!

'Romeo' Update from HSNI

Share this post

Veterinary expenses are mounting as Region residents help a rescued pit bull recuperate.  The Humane Society of Northwest Indiana reports that "Romeo’s wounds look horrible," but he is doing better and is responding to antibiotics and is still on pain medication.

"His wounds have been cleaned but in the process of cleaning the wounds the vet found many more puncture wounds. One wound is deep within his sinus cavity which is a concern, but is treatable. Part of the ear may have to be removed because of the intense infection. He also has many older healed wounds on his legs.

"His wounds must be treated and cleaned every day which is a painful process, but through it all Romeo is loving and wags his tail. Dr. Sheena Dadkah from the Munster Animal Hospital is his attending veterinarian commented that “Romeo’s whole weight is his big heart.” And that he is “so loving and sweet!”  “Everyone at the Munster Animal Hospital has fallen in love with him”

Romeo has many weeks of care ahead of him. We would like to thank everyone who has donated so far to “Romeo’s Rescue Fund”.
