VHS Offering Virtual Puppygram for Valentine’s Day on Facebook
Normally this time of year, the Vanderburgh Humane Society would be offering you the opportunity to send that special someone a puppy to snuggle with for a few minutes through their Cuddlegram fundraiser. But, at the risk of sounding like a broken record, nothing has been normal for a while thanks to COVID, which means the VHS had to come up with a backup plan for this year's Valentine's Day-themed fundraiser.
Instead of bringing you the puppies in person, they're bringing them to you virtually with "Puppygram Live!" on their Facebook page. For a $10 "admission" fee, you get to watch safely from the comfort of your home or office as the staff let's a group of puppies loose in one of their visiting rooms where you can watch them "romp & play" in all their adorable glory. A VHS staff member will also be involved and will answer any questions you may have about the puppies, or the shelter itself.
The live event will take place from 11:00 until 11:30 a.m. on Friday, February 12th with a goal of raising $3,000, the average amount they would normally raise through the Cuddlegrams. Tickets can be purchased now through the VHS Facebook page.
In other VHS news, they are currently looking to hire a full time Spay/Neuter Clinic Veterinary Technician or Veterinary Assistant, as well as a part-time Animal Care Technician. You can see the complete list of requirements for both jobs as well as apply online through the VHS website.
