Experienced Indiana Dog is Looking for a Job as Your Best Friend [VIDEO]
Allow us to introduce you to this week's Pet of the Week from the Vanderburgh Humane Society.
Hi, I’m Trixie – Experienced best friend, couch potato, and treat hound. With 8 years of life experience, I’m pretty much a pro at being a family pet. I love casual walks and have even shown signs of being crate-trained (I don’t make messes in my kennel at night!) With that being said, it takes time to get adjusted to a new schedule. In my previous home, I lived with big kids and no cats, but I’m open to trying new things! To learn more about me, visit me at the Vanderburgh Humane Society! My adoption fee is $150 and includes my microchip and vaccinations.
VHS is offering standard cat and dog vaccinations, basic disease testing (FELV, FIV, Heartworm), flea prevention, heartworm prevention, and ID microchipping.
Walk-in ONLY! Open 7:30 am-1:30 pm
First come, first serve via taking a number system.
Please understand that they are trying to see as many clients as possible, but the demand is often greater than time allows.
**IMPORTANT** If you are bringing an un-vaccinated puppy, please keep them off of the ground to minimize the risk of spreading disease/illness.
Upcoming Saturday pet vaccine clinic dates:
September 3 & 17
