TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – A dog and his dad at the Terre Haute Humane Society will live long and happy lives thanks to help from the Chloe Carroll Fund.

The Tail-A-Thon remains the biggest fundraiser for the humane society, but the Chloe Carroll Fund continues to help provide life-saving treatment and things on a smaller scale.

“It helps in every aspect. It may be something as simple as ordering medicine or a visit to the vet or just helping with anything. [Even] a bandaid,” Stacy Wilkins, Intake Director at the humane society, said.

The fund was established back in 2021 in honor of Chloe who was killed at the young age of 15.

She wanted to be a veterinarian, so her loved ones established the memorial fund to help care for the animals at the Terre Haute Humane Society, and it’s done just that.

“We had a neglect case, a dog that was in very rough shape, Vader, a lot of time a lot of energy. He has now since been adopted and some of the Chloe Carroll fund was used to help in his care,” Wilkins said.

Now, the fund is helping Vader’s dad, Tryton.

“He is being treated for heartworms and some of the Chloe Carroll fund is contributing to his care for that,” Wilkins said.

Tryton came from a home, not abandoned as many animals do.

She said something like heartworm treatment can be very expensive, especially while they’re operating at over capacity.

Thanks to the Chloe Carroll Fund, this dog and many to follow will get to live a long and happy life.
