The Terre Haute Humane Society has effectively reduced euthanasia in the community by incorporating and being involved with several new programs in our community. These programs include: low-cost spay-neuter, free spay neuter for the parents of puppies or kittens taken in at the shelter. Most recently we have been involved with the community HOPE program which targets families on assistance by providing free spay/neuter for their pets. We have increased adoptions by joining with PetSmart Charities adoption center at PetSmart, monthly Mutts at the Mall adoption events, and other adoption events at community events as well as businesses. We have a weekly presentation on both local TV stations, and a weekly article in our newspaper, each showcasing an available animal for adoption.
