Vanderburgh Humane Society accepts dogs from Puerto Rico disaster

The Vanderburgh Humane Society is standing by to accept at least a dozen dogs from Puerto Rico disaster relief. 

One hundred and twenty dogs were routed through Indianapolis Regional Airport, and the Humane Society of Indianapolis was responsible for unloading them there. 

The Vanderburgh Humane Society is among a handful of organizations accepting the animals. 

The Humane Society of the United States spearheaded and organized this transport.

The dogs will have health certificates, but will undergo preliminary health and behavioral evaluations by VHS veterinarians and medical staff members before going up for adoption. 

The VHS is prepared to take at least 12 adult dogs, and possibly more if any puppies are available.

Upon arrival at the VHS, the dogs will be placed into a separate holding kennel until Tuesday morning, and will be processed by the staff starting around 11:30 a.m.
