For the 3rd year in a row the Vanderburgh Humane Society is making sure every pupper, kitty cat, and rabbit have a warm home in time for the holidays! So they're hosting their annual Clear the Shelter event with FREE adoptions!

Saturday and Sunday December 16 & 17 is the clear the shelter event! If you've been debating adding a furry family member to your home, now is the time! All pets of course will be up to date on shots, and microchipped!

Here's what the VHS had to say :

Help us find every last dog, cat, and rabbit a home for the holidays.

The Vanderburgh Humane Society and The Petco Foundation are pleased to present the third Empty the Shelter Adopt-A-Thon on Saturday & Sunday, December 16th & 17th! Join us for our largest adoption event of the year with COMPLETELY WAIVED adoption fees on all animals.

(Regular adoption screening & procedures still apply. All animals still go home spayed/neutered, microchipped, and up-to-date on vaccinations for no fee.)

Enjoy special extended adoption hours from 10 am – 8 pm both days. The Happy Tails Resale Shop will be open both days too! Get here early. This is an affair not to be missed! Come one, come all. Whether you live in Evansville, IN or Eldorado, TX and anywhere in between, you can adopt from us just the same. And don't forget to bring a pair of new or gently-used shoes for our shoe drive fundraiser!

An adoption event of this magnitude will cost the VHS anywhere from $10,000 to $25,000. Financial support from the community is critical. $100 sponsors the average adoption. To make a donation, visit and click the “Donate” tag.

Pets like Ruby just want a home for Christmas. Are you the one they're waiting for? We'll see you on the 16th!
