CaPURRnicus is a sweet guy that is ready to find his forever home, and he's our WKDQ Pet of the Week!

All Makes And Models are Available at the VHS!

The Vanderburgh Humane Society (VHS) in Evansville has pets of all shapes and sizes. Or, as Executive Director, Kendall Paul likes to say when she stops by the studio on Thursdays, "all makes and models, and all certified pre-owned." They also have them in all ages, from puppies and kittens that are weeks old to dogs and cats who have been around awhile. So there is a very good likelihood that the VHS will have a pet that fits your lifestyle! Each week we feature a pet of the week with the VHS, and this week we've got a sweet young guy who is ready to find his forever home!

Meet CaPURRnicus


Capurrnicus is a young guy at only one year old, and he's currently at the Vanderburgh Humane Society.  He's the perfect cat, he's content following you around and being your snuggle buddy, but also lounging in his favorite spot. Here's what the VHS has to say about this sweet boy:

One-year-old Carpurrnicus knows he isn’t the center of your universe. After meeting this sweet-natured boy, however, your entire world will revolve around him! Laid back and affectionate, Capurrnicus will be just as happy following you around the house as he is lounging in his favorite spot. He has a history of living with other cats and would probably do just fine with dogs (given a proper introduction, of course.) His $100 adoption fee includes his neuter, microchip and up-to-date vaccines. Apply online at!
