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

Hi, my name is Sassy. I've been at the VHS since April. When you first meet me, I'm very shy. I'm much more friendly now that I've been living in the office with Penny. I'm only a year old,  always sweet, but can be shy and nervous. I love other cats and I need to go to a home with other cats (or be adopted along with another cat). :-)

Penny and I don’t have to be adopted together, but that would be great if left together. My friend, Penny (orange) is 10 and was also shy in her cage. Transferred in from AC in August. She would also do well with other cats, but not as shy as Sassy.

Adoption fees are $70 which includes all the normal stuff.

Fill out the adoption form at vhslifesaver.org.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED - Shop on Saturdays, donate items, or volunteer. We want to be open more during the week, but need the manpower, so we need people who can commit to a day each week or every other week to help run the register OR sort & price items!


Wanna watch cats playing LIVE 24/7 (if they’re not sleeping) on their new Petcube Play in the Cageless Cat Lounge and at the River Kitty Cat Cafe. 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! vhslifesaver.org!

Because the regulation of exotic animals is left to states, some organizations, including The Humane Society of the United States, advocate for federal, standardized legislation that would ban owning large cats, bears, primates, and large poisonous snakes as pets.

Read on to see which pets are banned in your home state, as well as across the nation.
