"ARISTA" cat is our Thursday pet of the week from It Takes a Village. She is a sweet girl looking for a forever home.

ARISTA is a beautiful 4-year-old buff-coated gal who is currently in a foster home, where she's been showered with love and care. ARISTA is litter box trained and knows how to respond when called.

ARISTA would love to meet you, and once she gets to know you, she becomes incredibly affectionate and loves receiving gentle pets. And here's some great news about ARISTA - she is great with both dogs and cats, making her an ideal addition to any loving family.

If you would like to help ARISTA keep living the good life in a forever home, fill out an online adoption application, and then schedule a meet and greet with our pet of the week. If you aren't able to adopt right now, perhaps you could foster an animal from ITV. Fostering is FREE and always welcome.

All of the animals at ITV are examined by a veterinarian, given age-appropriate vaccinations, dewormed, microchipped, spayed or neutered, and FIV/FeLV-tested.

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. And don't forget about their RENT A DOG Program. A quick fill form and copy of your photo ID will allow you time out with one of ITV's vetted shelter dogs. These day dates are great for the rescues - it gets them some exercise and new information to help us get them adopted. It’s been a big hit- so don’t miss out!
