For Nursing Moms:

Last Litter Program

Did your dog or cat have an unwanted litter? The Vanderburgh Humane Society's Last Litter program offers free spay surgery for moms and guarantees adoption of her puppies/kittens after 8 weeks of age as long as no life-threatening health issues arise.

To participate in Last Litter, owners must surrender all puppies/kittens in the litter to the VHS and pay the $50 litter surrender fee. Then, once all puppies/kittens have arrived and been signed over and surrender fee has been paid, our Low-Cost Spay & Neuter Clinic will schedule an appointment to spay Mom for free!

It’s a win-win: placement of the puppies/kittens, and FREE spay surgery for mom!

To inquire about Last Litter appointments, call our Intake Department at (812) 426-2563 extension 208.
