Our Featured Pet...We have many beautiful, loving, well-socialized dogs and cats awaiting adoption. We have more animals than those listed on Petfinder (some are here, some are in foster homes). Please contact us if you have a request for a certain type of pet and do not see it on our listing.
NewsPVCHS has been helping the animals in Parke and Vermillion Counties, Indiana, since April of 1991. The shelter was built in 2000 and opened in late November, 2000.
Christmas 2013 FundraiserPlease help us raise $5,000 for the animals this Christmas. All donations are TAX DEDUCTIBLE. To donate, click on the "Donate" button listed above, mail a contribution to us at the address listed below, or drop your donation at the shelter in person. The fundraising thermometer will be updated every day.
Who We AreThe PVCHS is a non-profit, private organization committed to the education of the public in the humane treatment of all animals, the prevention of cruelty to animals, the relief of suffering among animals, and the importance of animal population control through the promotion of spaying and neutering.
Adopting a friendOur current adoption fees have been temporarily reduced on cats and kittens as well as on several breeds / sizes of dogs. Please check the fees stated on the listing page for each pet. Normal adoption fees are $110 for dogs and $65-$90 for cats, unless otherwise stated. All of our animals have been vaccinated, wormed and most have been spayed or neutered. Most cats have been Feline Leukemia and FIV tested as well. We also perform behavior assessments on all dogs over five months of age.
We do not ship animals to adopters, but can occasionally make arrangements to meet adopters at Petsmart in Terre Haute, if that is more convenient. Adopters are always welcome to come see all of our animals at the shelter during open hours or by making an appointment by calling us at 765-492-3540. Adopters are encouraged to bring all family members to help meet and select their new pet. Potential adopters are also encouraged to complete an adoption application form on-line at www.pvchs.cfsites.org. This will allow for pre-approval and speed up the adoption process. Please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
