Other Ways to Help

There are many other ways to help the Vanderburgh Humane Society other than monetary donations. See below for ideas.

  • With Your Wallet

    Schnucks eScrip  

    Shop at Schnucks and pick up an eScrip card from the service desk! When you activate the card, select the Vanderburgh Humane Society as your charity of choice. Up to 3% of your purchases at any Schnucks store will come back to our animals (depending on how much you spend) when the cashier scans your eScrip card at checkout! This program raises between $8,000-$10,000 for the VHS annually.

    Purchase a replica of your beloved pet or give a Cuddle Clone as a gift and use “VHSPETS” in the promo code box. A portion of your purchase will come back to our animals!

  • With Your Car

    Pet-Friendly License Plate

    Choose a Pet-Friendly License Plate next time you renew! Funds from this plate go to Spay-Neuter Services of Indiana, a state organization that funds spay & neuter for low-income Hoosier pet owners. They also provide surgery reimbursement certificates for shelters, rescues, and feral cat TNR organizations statewide. While VHS doesn’t receive direct donations from these plates, we accept these low-income spay & neuter vouchers at our Clinic and we have received surgery reimbursement vouchers from SNSI several times. Your license plate can help us and hundreds of other agencies save lives! 

  • With Your Tummy

    Stumped on where to grab lunch or dinner? VHS hosts a variety of give-backs at local restaurants every year. Keep an eye on our homepage and on our social media for the latest give-back information before you decide where to eat!

  • With Your Old Stuff

    Aluminum Cans

    VHS recycles aluminum soda cans with Tri-State Resource & Recovery for extra cash. The public can drop off cans during business hours in our main lobby, or 24 hours a day in the large can shed in our rear parking lot. Please do not donate steel cans; we can only accept aluminum. (Grab a magnet. If it doesn’t stick, it’s aluminum!)


    Newspaper

    Each cat and small animal cage at VHS is lined with fresh newspaper daily. We use a lot. Newspapers without slick ads can be dropped off during General Business Hours Tuesday through Saturday from 9:00 am – 6:00 pm CST in the front lobby.


    Shoeboxes

    VHS accepts shoeboxes for our shelter cats to use as “beds.” Everyone knows cats love boxes! Shoeboxes can be dropped off during General Business Hours Tuesday through Saturday from 9:00 am – 6:00 pm CST in the front lobby.


    Gently-Used Towels, Blankets, Flat Sheets, and Washcloths

    VHS accepts clean, non-ripped linens during General Business Hours Tuesday through Saturday from 9:00 am – 6:00 pm CST in the front lobby. These are used for our shelter animals’ bedding, during bathing & cleaning in the Spay & Neuter Clinic, and in various other capacities.
