Moooooove on down to It Takes a Village to meet OSCAR, our Thursday Pet of the Week.
OSCAR is a two-and-a-half-year-old cattle dog mix (hence the 'mooooo' reference above), who only weighs about 28 pounds. He is a wee fella with a huge smile, and pretty big ears too. OSCAR is currently in a foster home and he's doing great. He loves playing with other animals, so that shouldn't be a problem for whoever ends up adopting him. It Takes a Village tells us OSCAR is super upbeat with an awesome "Don't worry be happy" attitude.
OSCAR's adoption fee is $200. If you're interested, go ahead and fill out an online adoption application
. Not interested in adopting? How about fostering a pet? Fostering is free at It Takes a Village.
And as always, if our pet of the week isn’t the right fit for your home, please visit It Takes a Village to see the other rescues that need to get fostered and adopted. Keep in mind that It Takes a Village is still in need of fosters for mommas and litters. It's puppy season at ITV.
All of the animals at ITV are examined by a veterinarian, given age-appropriate vaccinations, microchipped, spayed or neutered, and FIV/FeLV-tested.
ITV is open during regular hours. However, they have received so much support and interest over shut down, that they are still working diligently to review all correspondences. They appreciate everyone’s patience as they find the best matches for their rescues.
