Vanderburgh Humane Society Reaches First Time Milestone
The Vanderburgh Humane Society released infographics for 2018 on their Facebook earlier this week revealing a number stats including the number of animals called the shelter home over the course of the year, how many were adopted, and the number of animals who were spayed or neutered through their Low Cost Clinic. But there's one stat the shelter is particularly proud of, and that's because it's never happened before in the history of the facility.
Since being founded in 1957, the shelter has unfortunately had to euthanize least one animal each year for any number of reasons, usually due to poor health or the animal's behavior, but there have been cases over the years where it was needed due to lack of space to house those particular animals. However, for the first time ever, that last instance wasn't the case in 2018. Not one animal needed to be put down due to space which is awesome!
Check out the infographics below for more info on what the VHS was able to accomplish last year.
