VHS In Need of Donations to Care for Dogs Taken in From Evansville Hoarding Case
Earlier this week, Evansville Animal Care & Control rescued 43 dogs from a hoarding situation in Evansville. Those dogs have since been given to various shelters and rescues across Evansville, including the Vanderburgh Humane Society who graciously took in 18 of them. All of which are in the process of being assessed by the VHS where they will work do determine the health of each and work towards getting them ready for adoption. Of course that process isn't free. The VHS estimates it will cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $300 to $400 per dog, and they're hoping you might be able to help cover that cost.
In a post on their Facebook page Wednesday afternoon, the VHS says all 18 are "not very well-socialized, have likely never experienced leash-walking, and are not housetrained or spayed/neutered," which is why it will take some time before they are ready to be put up for adoption and hopefully find a family that will give them a better life than what they've had until now.
Any amount of money you can donate will go a long way toward getting all these dogs to where they need to be. If you would like to make a donation, you can do so by stopping by the VHS at 400 Millner Industrial Drive on Evansville's north side and donating in person. You can mail a check, or you can do it online through either the VHS website, or by clicking the "Donate" located between the photos and the comments section of their post on Facebook.
Here's a better look at some of those dogs:
