The Speedway Animal Rescue, nestled in the heart of Indianapolis, has issued an urgent appeal to the community after a poignant discovery at the Indianapolis Airport this week. A young dog, now affectionately named “Boeing” by the rescue staff, was found abandoned, sparking a city-wide search for the owner to determine the best course of action for this forlorn pup.

At just 4-5 months old, Boeing carries the marks of recent medical care, with stitches visible on his front leg and armpit, wrapped in a body bandage—a silent testament to the care he’d received before his unexpected desertion. The rescue is not only seeking to reconnect Boeing with his owner to understand the circumstances of his abandonment but also to ensure his well-being is continued with the compassion he deserves.

In a digital plea that has tugged at the heartstrings of the online community, Speedway Animal Rescue’s social media post has become a beacon of hope for Boeing. The rescue center has also extended a call to local veterinary professionals, urging anyone who may recognize this pup to step forward.
