Our pet of the week, CALI, is more than just a cute kitty - she is ready to take on the role of professional rodent catcher for you and your family. You can adopt CALI right now at It Takes a Village.

CALI is a beautiful, 3-year-old female tortoiseshell, and she, like many other kitties at It Takes a Village, would be a perfect barn cat for the right home.


ITV offers a barn cat program for cats who are not tame enough to live in a home. Thanks to this program, stray or feral cats are given the chance to earn their keep by providing rodent control.

CALI has experience as a mouser and she will not only keep your property pest-free but she also adds a touch of feline charm to your surroundings. Her unique ear tip signifies that she's been spayed and ready to take on her responsibilities. The best thing we can say about CALI is that adopting her is absolutely FREE!

If you think you might be ready to welcome CALI into your life, go ahead and fill out an online adoption application.

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!
