Hello! IÂ’m Nina, a 7-year-old tan and white pit mix and I could really use a FURRREVER home. All together IÂ’ve been residing at the Humane Society of Vero Beach & Indian River County for about ten months, but my story is a little bit more complicated than that.

I originally came to HSVB in February of 2013 and I was heartworm positive, so the nice people here treated me and lo and behold, 3 long months later, I was adopted to what I hoped was my FURREVER home.

But in January of 2017 I was returned and it made me very sad. IÂ’ve been here ever since, just lazing my days away in my private little room I have here at HSVB, which I was put in to help me with the issues that I have towards other dogs and cats. You see, I want to be the queen of my castle, second only to my owners.

I donÂ’t get along well with other animals and because of that I cannot go to a home with small children residing in it. BUT!!!!! I am a love bug and love to have my tummy scratched and will gladly sit on command especially for one of those AMAZING!!!!!! Pupperonis. IÂ’m also completely house trained and donÂ’t mind at all spending a few hours in my crate if you have a busy schedule and donÂ’t want me to roam freely around your house. So please ask the nice ladies at the front counter to meet me you wonÂ’t regret it!!!!! Because as nice as all the staff and volunteers are here at HSVB, ITS TIME FOR ME TO GO HOME!!!!

About Humane Society of Vero Beach & Indian River County

About Our Shelter...

What is it and why do we do it?

We "go the extra mile" to help assure that, when you adopt a pet from HSVB&IRC, you'll be making an informed choice. By matching an animal's personality to yours and your lifestyle, we're more likely to assure that you make the right adoption decision the first time.

We are using a program developed by the ASPCA. It is called "Meet Your Match." Currently, we evaluate dogs and cats before we make them available for adoption.

Also, we ask each prospective adopter to complete an Adopters' Survey which helps identify factors in their lifestyle which might guide their choice of animals. Then, we compare the findings to make a match.

Proudly, we have a very high adoption retention rate — a fact we credit to taking this extra step in the adoption process.
We want you to make a "SAFER" choice, too.
In addition to Meet Your Match, HSVB&IRC has implemented the ASPCA’s Meet Your Match SAFER™ (Safety Assessment For Evaluating & Rehoming) program - a tool for assessing the probability of future canine aggression. Ask us for more details.
