Allow us to introduce you to this week's Pet of the Week from the Vanderburgh Humane Society.
Sparky & S’Mores, both 1-year-old male guinea pigs. We currently have 18 rabbits, and 8 other small animals (guinea pigs, rats & mice). So, not all dogs & cats.
$30 each, including cardboard carrier. (Guinea pigs often come in bonded pairs, which would make the adoption fee $30 for both.)
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED - Shop on Saturdays, donate items, or volunteer. We want to be open more during the week, but need the manpower, so we need people who can commit to a day each week or every other week to help run the register OR sort & price items!
Be sure to follow VHS on TikTok @vhslifesaver to see funny animal videos and behind-the-scenes details on what sheltering really looks like! The clinic behind-the-scenes TikTok is up to more than 700,000 VIEWS!
Wanna watch cats playing LIVE 24/7 (if they’re not sleeping) on their new Petcube Play in the Cageless Cat Lounge and at the River Kitty Cat Cafe. 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! vhslifesaver.org
