Pets at Our Shelter:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:PVCHS serves both Parke and Vermillion counties. This includes Rockville, Clinton, Hillsdale, Montezuma, and many other towns. We have adopted animals to people from states as far away as Georgia and Minnesota. We are always actively seeking additional VOLUNTEERS to help with the shelter animals at our facility and at events in the community. If interested in becoming a volunteer, please visit our web page and download a copy of our Volunteer Application.
About Our Shelter: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. PVCHS 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.

(We are directly behind the Vermillion County Jail, and share the same entrance road, located at mile marker 59). Our physical address is 1884 S. SR 63, Hillsdale.

Other sites that may be visited for information about our adoptable animals are www.pvchs.petfinder.com and our web site www.pvchs.cfsites.org.
Our Adoption Process:An adoption application must be completed prior to adoption. This application may be completed at our facility, or it can be downloaded by visiting our web site www.pvchs.cfsites.org and choosing the "Applications and Fees" link. Once the application has been completed, it can be emailed to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The usual adoption fee is $50.00 for kittens, $25.00 for cats and $110.00 for dogs and puppies which includes first distemper vaccination, deworming(s), spay / neuter surgrey, pet information packet, slip leash(dog) or carrier(cat), and a free office call at a (local) participating veterinarian. Senior pets (seven years old and older) can usually be adopted for a $10.00 adoption fee.
Our policy is that all pets must be spayed or neutered prior to leaving the shelter. Fees may vary depending on the particular animal and the situation surrounding that animal. Shelter animals can also be microchipped for an additional $10.00 fee.
We do not ship animals to adopters. Adopters are encouraged to bring all family members to help meet and select their new pet. Adopters complete an adoption application form and provide their veterinarian and landlord's phone number(s) for a reference.
