Located in Evansville, Indiana, the VHS serves as a surrender and adoption agency for unwanted pets. In addition to finding homes for animals, the VHS also works to build public awareness of the problem of homeless and abandoned pets. Through special events, media coverage and other outreach activities we hope to reduce the flow of animals to our shelter.To begin to reduce the number of animals surrendered to the VHS and other shelters, we have opened Low Cost Spay & Neuter Services in the Davidson/Rausch Clinic on the VHS Campus at 400 Millner Drive in Evansville.Some dogs do not do well in a shelter environment. Some cats just need a little extra time to find their forever home. ACA pulls animals from Evansville Animal Care and Control and puts them into temporary homes, foster homes, to meet the needs of these animals. After being spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and tested, these animals are put up for adoption through ACAIn contrast to Warrick and ITAV, both non-profits, we find Vanderburgh Humane Society (also a non-profit) and Evansville Animal Care and Control. Both of these are Open Admission shelters, Evansville AC because by law it must be, and VHS because it chooses to be, in part to give people an option to AC and to give healthy, well-adjusted pets a chance for a new home. I will also add that VHS’s intake is not limited to Vanderburgh County residents only. They receive animals on a consistent basis from Posey, Gibson, Warrick, Spencer, Daviess, and Dubois Counties and from time to time other Indiana counties as well. They also take in animals from Kentucky counties and from some counties in Southern Illinois. Most of these counties have their own AC and/or humane organization.Warrick Humane Society also is a “No-Kill” shelter who does recognize the need for euthanizing and does address this issue at times. They control their numbers by very selectively taking in animals and stop when they reach capacity which in their case I believe is a pretty low number. They refer all others to either Vanderburgh Humane Society or Evansville Animal Control letting these organizations deal with that which they can’t or do not choose to.
