Allow us to introduce you to this week's Pet of the Week from the Vanderburgh Humane Society! See him in action!


More info about him -

Buuud. He’s our longest resident canine right now. He was found as a stray April 30th, with a red collar & no microchip. Still no one ever came to reclaim him, so here he sits! We have him as a mixed-breed, since we obviously have no idea what he’s mixed with. Perhaps some Husky with those bright blue eyes? Otherwise, no telling. We think he’s about 6 based on his teeth. He does fine with other dogs at Cardio for Canines. Not sure on cats yet but we can introduce him.His quirkiest trait is that he loves to be on things. You see him get on the chair in the video, and whenever you walk by his kennel he’s almost always sitting nicely on his bed. Not laying — sitting. He seems like he’s used to being on somebody’s couch. Do you have a spare cushion?

 

Adoption fee $110.


High Score Saloon give back — next Friday 9/20. 5 pm - 1 am. They are a barcade (bar + arcade) on downtown Main Street. VHS will receive all proceeds from the $3 cover charge and all pinball machine money that night. Must be 21+ to enter, you will be ID’ed. Very excited to be partnering with Clint & Jared of HSS at their super fun establishment! Info is on our website homepage, or there’s a co-hosted Facebook event!


The VHS just started a “Catnado” adoption special. Half-off. Now, though the end of the August. So these guys are $30 each. Vaccinated and spayed or neutered before going home.We have more than 320 cats and it’s imperative that we keep making space. Even if 10 get adopted out the front in one day, it’s almost guaranteed that we’ll have 10 more coming in the back door at the same time! Feline intake is scheduled almost into October right now because there are so many families in this same situation.


Now accepting corporate volunteer groups for our Fall Festival booth! Day & night shifts available for groups of 2-7 people. We depend heavily on the money that our super-busy vegetarian booth raises, and we can’t do it without the hands fryin’ the green tomatoes and shakin’ the shake-ups! Email events@vhslifesaver.org to inquire!


 The VHS now has several litters of kittens in foster care and even a few at the shelter ready for adoption, so the “Kitten Season Please Help” 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!
