VHS Helping Dogs Rescued from Church Find New Homes


Many of the dogs found in an Evansville church will be looking for new homes.

The Vanderburgh Humane Society is one of the shelters doing its part to ensure those dogs find homes.

VHS originally planned to take 40 of the 68 dogs but was able to split those up with other shelters like It Takes a Village.

The 22 dogs VHS did take have all been vaccinated and examined by the shelter’s vet.

There are still some tests to determine how many of the dogs can go up for adoption.

VHS Development Coordinator Amanda Coburn says she’s hopeful it’s all of them.

“We always tell people to come in with an open mind and an open heart because you really might fall in love with one that you never expected. We also try to promote senior pet adoption as much as we can because it’s so rewarding to adopt a senior pet. It’s almost as if they are more grateful for an adopted home.”

Coburn says VHS is taking donations to help care for the dogs.

She says most of the dogs were rescued from other shelters or from outside the state.
