Allow us to introduce you to this week's Pet of the Week from the Vanderburgh Humane Society, Greg! Just a big, lovable, sweet, boy! See him in action!

Amanda, from the VHS sent us this info:
Greg is 2 1/2 years old and he’s a blue heeler (Australian Cattle Dog.) Came in April 12th. He has done fine with other dogs, cats, and bunnies at the shelter. Everyone loves him and he’s been out on Cardio for Canines, Mutt’s Morning Out, to Eyewitness News, and to cMoe Corporate Recess recently making lots of new friends.

He does have what appears to be skin allergies, which is the red spots on his rump. He will likely have to be on a maintenance diet or medication for it for life. Allergies in pets are becoming more & more common, and there are so many dietary and medicinal options now that’s it’s much less of a big deal than it used to be. His new family will just need to make a long-term plan with their veterinarian.

Adoption fee $110.


AUCTION
Time is running out to make reservations or donate items for Fantastic Pets! You CANNOT pay at the door... we have to turn in the final meal count to the venue on Friday the 10th. $90 base ticket, $125 benefactor ticket. Tables of 10 are $1,000 or $1,250 for businesses. Some cool auction items we have this year: smart home system from A+ Derr, beautiful jewelry from Brinker’s and Goldman’s, a Yeti cooler stocked with booze, partial share at Seton Harvest, more than 30 restaurant gift cards, and tons more! Reserve at VHSlifesaver.org or stop by the shelter!


We now have several litters of kittens in foster care and even a few at the shelter ready for adoption, so the “Kitten Season Please Halp” plea begins now. Foster homes are needed. For kittens by themselves, and also for moms with kittens. Fostering is 100% free. We provide everything INCLUDING food (not all organizations do.) Fostering is also not indefinite with us. The goal is for you to have the kittens as short a time as possible until they can come back to the shelter for adoption — the littler they are, the more people want them. You will not have the same foster animals for years on end.

All the info on fostering is at www.vhslifesaver.org/foster.


Wanna watch cats playing LIVE 24/7 (if they’re not sleeping) on their new Petcube Play in the Cageless Cat Lounge. Download the free Petcube app, create an account, and find “VHS Cat Lounge.” The camera runs all the time and if you turn your phone to landscape, you can control the built-in laser pointer and play with the kittens!
