All Makes and Models (Literally)

The Vanderburgh Humane Society (VHS) in Evansville has pets of all shapes and sizes. Or, as Executive Director, Kendall Paul likes to say when she stops by the studio on Thursdays, "all makes and models, and all certified pre-owned." They also have them in all ages, from puppies and kittens that are weeks old to dogs and cats who have been around awhile. So there is a very good likelihood that the VHS will have a pet that fits your lifestyle! Each week we feature a pet of the week with the VHS, and this week we've got a unique furry friend that is looking for his forever home, a ferret named Simon.


Simon Says "Adopt Me!"

Simon is a sweet ferret who is said to be ideal for the experienced ferret owner or someone new to the world of ferret owning. He's a very sweet boy who just wants to find his forever home.  Here is what the VHS has to say about Simon:

Simon says, “Come adopt me and all of my friends from the VHS!” Meet Simon – Even though this three-year-old slinky boy is not included in our current adoption special, he’s still deserving of his own spotlight! Before arriving at the VHS, he was an owner surrender at Evansville Animal Care and Control. He is curious, gentle, easy to handle, and has captured the hearts of all who have met him at the VHS. He would be great for a first time ferret owner! Simon’s adoption fee is $150 and includes his rabies vaccine. Apply for him online at vhslifesaver.org!
