Vanderburgh Humane Society announces over 100 adoptions last week
The week leading up to Christmas was certainly the most wonderful time of year for many animals who were waiting for someone to make them part of their family.
The Vanderburgh Humane Society celebrated the adoption of 104 animals with a post on Facebook Monday afternoon. According to the publication, the majority of adoptions were cats and dogs, some of which had been in VHS custody for some time.
There was Furby, a cat who finally found a home after spending 200 days at the shelter as the longest-serving feline resident. Lila, an 11-year-old dog, spent Christmas with her new family after living on VHS for three months, and Dexter, one of 58 cats taken in by VHS in a recent hoarding case, was the first in this group to find a new permanent place to call home.
The animals at the shelter weren’t the only ones to find their forever homes. Eight cats who lived at the River Kitty Cat Cafe on the Main Street Walkway in downtown Evansville also found new families to love them. And it’s not just cats and dogs that have found permanent families. 12 parakeets and a pair of guinea pigs who “came from different backgrounds but fell in love at the shelter” also found new families.
While over 100 adoptions is great news for these animals and opens up space for VHS, the shelter still has a ton of other dogs, cats, rabbits, mice, birds and more looking for someone to whom to integrate them. their family. Find out about all the potential pets currently available for adoption at the VHS site. Who knows, you might find your next furry soul mate.
