Chloe, the Abused Dog Found in a Trash Bin, is Finally Up for Adoption

The little pooch who has a steady following on her Facebook fan page will be available for adoption at an event Saturday, March 30.

What to Know

  • Saturday, March 30, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Chloe, a severely-abused dog discovered tied up in a trash bag with a broken leg, will finally be up for adoption after months of rehabilitation.

The pup, who at this point is so well known that she has her own Facebook following and T-shirts bearing her likeness, was found near death Dec. 8 in a Long Beach trash bin.

She had a broken femur, skull and rib fractures, and bruising on most of her body, veterinarians said. 

She was rescued by Diana Kliche, a board member for Fix Long Beach, after someone messaged her about a small pup who had been thrown in a dumpster. 

The search for her abuser is still on, with a $20,000 reward offered to find the person responsible.

Staff at Long Beach Animal Emergency Hospital took Chloe under its wing, performing surgery on the broken leg, which one veterinarian had said was broken for at least two weeks before Chloe was rescued. 

Many animal lovers who heard Chloe's story have waited with bated breath for the day she'd finally be healed, and available for adoption.

The day is finally coming. At a Saturday, March 30 event, Chloe will be searching for her fur-ever home. 

Visit the Pet Food Express located at 4220 Long Beach Boulevard, Long Beach, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Chloe will be at the Saturday event, ready to give kisses as thanks for all the donations received from the public toward her care. Other dogs and cats looking for homes will also be there.
