Adoptable Indiana Dog Has Spent Most of Her Life in Shelters
It's hard to say why some animals at the Vanderburgh Humane Society (VHS) get looked over. A perfect example of this is this week's Pet of the Week, Jerrie, a sweet and energetic 3-year-old girl on her second stay at the VHS who's hoping you will make it her last.
According to the VHS, Jerrie's first stay took place back in May of 2021 when she was relocated from the Best Friends Animal Rescue in Arkansas. After spending an undisclosed amount of time at the shelter, she was adopted (yay!). However, the time with her new owners was brief (boo!), and due to no fault of her own, she found her way back to the VHS in August 2022. She's been there ever since, meaning she's spent over half of her life in a shelter. It's time for that to change.
The VHS says she is super smart and food-motivated, which helps when it comes to training. She also LOVES to rough house when she plays, which the VHS understands may not be for everyone, especially families with little kids. But, surely there's an individual or family somewhere in the Tri-State that is the perfect fit. Maybe that someone is you.
Adoption Process and Fee
Thanks to the VHS partnering with the Bissell Pet Foundation for its Empty the Shelters event, you can get Jerrie for only $10 when normally that fee would be $150. And if that's not enough to sway you, the discounted fee still covers the cost of her spaying, microchipping, and up-to-date vaccinations just like the regular fee. I mean, you're practically stealing her.
If you'd like to get a jump on the adoption process for Jerrie, or any of the animals the VHS offers that you might be interested in, you can fill out some of the paperwork in advance on the VHS website.
