King Me! CHECKERS is Our Super Cool Adoptable Pet of the Week from It Takes a Village
Nobody rocks a pair of shades like CHECKERS, our Thursday Pet of the Week from It Takes a Village?
CHECKERS is a 12-year-old male boxer mix who weighs 50 lbs. He was an owner surrender in Spencer County. The kennel techs at It Takes a Village refer to CHECKERS as “Hugh Hefner” because he’s an old dude with a large number of doting females. As you can see from his pics, CHECKERS doesn’t mind playing dress-up, so maybe you can convince him to complete the outfit with a silk robe too. CHECKERS previously lived around cats and one even shared his dog house and used CHECKERS as a pillow. He’s open to meet and greets with other dogs. To add this senior sweetheart to your family, apply at ITVrescue.org.
If you think you might be interested in adopting CHECKERS, go ahead and fill out an online adoption application - once you're approved, you can set up a meet and greet with this cool fella.
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. And don't forget about ITV's 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!
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.
