Puerto Rican Rescue Dogs Available for Adoption at Vanderburgh Humane
After processing, health screenings, and other formalities, 10 of the 11 rescue dogs from Puerto Rico taken in by the Vanderburgh Humane Society (VHS) are ready to become part of your family!
The dogs were just a small percentage of the 120 that were flow into Indianapolis last week, and divided among several rescue facilities across the state.
The 10 dogs will be available for viewing beginning at 9:00 a.m. tomorrow (Thursday, October 26th), and adoption applications will be "reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis, and there will be no holds" according to a press release from the VHS. The 11th dog, a puppy, has already been adopted by a Humane Society volunteer.
None of the dogs from Puerto Rico have been spayed or neutered, and will not be allowed to leave the facility until that happens. The procedure usually takes one to two business days according to the VHS.
Adoption fees range from $100 for large breed adult dogs, to $120 for puppies and small breeds. That fee covers the cost of spay or neutering, registered microchip, vaccinations, deworming, and a starter bag of food.
If you arrive hoping to get one of these animals, only to find they've all been adopted, be sure to check out one of the other 30 dogs at the facility looking for their forever home.
If cats and kittens are more your speed, the Society's month-long special on adoption fees continues through next Tuesday.
