Allow us to introduce you to this week's Pet of the Week from the Vanderburgh Humane Society.

Meet Mercy!

Oh, Mercy me, why am I still here? My name is, in fact, Mercy and I’ve been at the VHS for a whopping 137 days!! Not sure why, as I check off all the boxes – Loves people, enjoys other dogs, sweet-natured and adventurous. And have you seen my zoomies?! I’m, like, REALLY fast and almost go airborne when I’m zooming around the yard. I love participating in Cardio for Canines and would thrive in a home that lets me get my daily exercise. My adoption fee is $150 and includes my spay, microchip, and vaccinations. What are you waiting for? Come meet me at the Vanderburgh Humane Society today!
