IN Shelter Dog sadly watches his forever family for over 137 days

Allow us to introduce you to this week pet of the week of the Vanderburgh Humane Society.

Meet Mercy!

Oh, pity me, why am I still here? Actually, my name is Mercy and I’ve been on VHS for 137 days!! I don’t know why, because I tick all the boxes – Loves people, likes other dogs, gentle and adventurous. And have you seen my zooms?! I’m, like, REALLY fast and I’m almost flying through the air when I’m zooming around the yard. I love participating in Cardio for Canines and would thrive in a home that allows me to do my daily exercise. My adoption fee is $150 and includes my sterilization, my microchip and my vaccinations. What are you waiting for? Come meet me at the Vanderburgh Humane Society today!
