It's not often that we have two pets of the week from the Vanderburgh Humane Society to introduce you to, but it does happen from time to time. It's also not unusual for the two pets up for adoption to be "bonded" (more on what that means later). With all that said, let us introduce you to this pair who are ready to hop right into your hearts. Meet Caramel and Chocolate.

Caramel and Chocolate's Story


Caramel and Chocolate are 2-year-old females with two different personalities that complement each other well. Chocolate (the black and white one) is a little more on the shy side while Caramel is more outgoing. According to the VHS, Caramel is always the first to scope the scene and lets Chocolate know everything is cool. You can see that in the video above as Caramel seems to always be "in the lead" with Chocolate following close behind.

What Are Bonded Animals?

According to House with a Heart:

Bonded pairs of animals have generally grown up together. While often siblings, non-siblings can bond as well. Although every animal can develop bonds, there are times when these bonds are so close that one or both animals decline when not with the other.

While you could take just one of them, it is preferred that you take both. Normally, their adoption fee would be $80 for a pair of bonded bunnies, but because the VHS is so full right now, and thanks to Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb proclaiming this week as “Adopt a Hoosier Shelter Pet Week”, you make both of them part of your family for free!

If you'd like to get a jump on the adoption process for Caramel and Chocolate, 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.
