Humane Society welcomes 15 new dogs


INDIAN RIVER COUNTY — The local humane society recently welcomed 15 new furry friends – 11 dogs and four puppies – at its animal shelter. The dogs were transferred from Clewiston Animal Control, which had a high animal intake this summer and was at double its capacity, officials said.

The Humane Society of Vero Beach & Indian River County brought the dogs on Wednesday to its animal shelter located off 77th Street. Clewiston Animal Control officials contacted the local humane society for help.

“They reached out to us and we were able to help,” Humane Society officials said in a statement. “We took in 15 of the 30 dogs, who all arrived safely this afternoon.”

The agency’s veterinarians and medical team assessed the canines. The dogs were enjoying treats, toys, rest time and tender loving care, officials said.

“We are so incredibly happy that these sweet pups will have a second chance at a happy and healthy life,” the agency’s officials said. “Keep watching our website and social media pages to see when these cuties will be available for adoption.”
The Humane Society of Vero Beach & Indian River County is a non-profit organization that provides a variety of services including care and shelter for homeless animals, matching adoptable pets with loving homes and promoting spaying and neutering along with responsible pet ownership. More information can be found on the agency’s website.
