A Pro-Life Shelter 

White River Humane Society is in great need of medical fund donations!
 In the last 6 months, funds has been spent on numerous animals with special medical problems. We have had senior dogs, sick dogs and cats, injured dogs and cats, skin issues, 5 leg amputations, 8 heartworm treatments (5 currently in the process), dogs hit by cars, a dog who was shot, and a dog that was kicked with a broken femur.
Our medical fund has been drained dry!

 Please make a donation to WRHS, and specify to the medical fund if you want to continue to help save animals like these in the picture who wouldn't have a chance if it wasn't for your donations!! You can donate via our website on the
left side and click the Donate button, or mail to PO Box 792, Bedford, IN 47421, or stop by the shelter. Just be sure to specify medical fund, and your donation will save an animal's life.

New Year...New Home! At White River Humane Society, all dogs over 1 year old, all cats, and all kittens have special adoption fees for the new year! Give a WRHS homeless pet a new beginning by bringing one into your home. This is only for a limited time so stop by and see what is available or check out our website today! As of 3-20-15, funds are still available for reduced adoption fees! 

Here's a tip...get those pets chipped for only $5! Cruiser here has some wonderful news for your furbabies! Thanks to the BISSELL Pet Foundation, WRHS will be offering $5 microchips while funds last. That means you will save $10!! One in three pets will get lost. Without ID, 90% won't return home. Give your pets the gift that could help them find their way home some day.
Give the shelter a call at 812-279-2457 with any questions you may have or bring your cats or dogs in during the hours of M-F 10-4:30 and Sat 10-3:30 for microchips! As of 3-20-15, funds are still available to get your pet microchipped for ONLY $5!!

Daisy is a beautiful bloodhound/lab mix.  She is just barely a year old, and she loves everyone.  She is a sweetheart who has the sweetest face.  She loves to play, and she enjoys walks.  Daisy has been an inside dog before so she would do great inside or outside! She is fixed, up to date on shots, heartworm negative, and microchipped.

Senorita is an older girl who is declawed.  She has been in foster, and her foster mom has nothing but good things to say about her.  She was depressed at the shelter, but since then she has really come out of her shell.  She has been living in a house with other cats and dogs and tolerates them all!  She is ready for her forever home.   Senorita is FIV/FeLV negative, up to date on shots, and spayed.  Senorita has a reduced adoption fee because someone thought she was special!
