Sweet BELLA is a 3-year-old smallish/mediumish Boxer. BELLA came to It Takes a Village (thank God) from a kill shelter. BELLA's sister gave birth to a litter of puppies just a couple of days after arriving at ITV - at least they're all together now.

BELLA needs a foster for the time being until ITV can finish all of the necessary vetting protocols. The next step, if you're interested, is to fill out an online foster application, and then schedule a meet & greet with BELLA. This sweet girl needs to meet any other pet you have in the house too. Remember that fostering is free and can turn into an adoption providing all appointments are met and BELLA is a good match for your home.

It Takes a Village is full of animals right now and needs a bunch of foster homes - they have all sizes, ages, and breeds.

Another important reminder - until the end of July, the adoption fee for all rescues (one year old and over) is just $59.95. Please come meet your new best friend!

Our Thursday Pet of the Week is sponsored by Diamonds on the Ruff Dog Salon & Retreat.

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.

LOOK: Here Are 30 Foods That Are Poisonous to Dogs

To prepare yourself for a potential incident, always keep your vet's phone number handy, along with an after-hours clinic you can call in an emergency. The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center also has a hotline you can call at (888) 426-4435 for advice.

Even with all of these resources, however, the best cure for food poisoning is preventing it in the first place. To give you an idea of what human foods can be dangerous, Stacker has put together a slideshow of 30 common foods to avoid. Take a look to see if there are any that surprise you.

LOOK: Stunning animal photos from around the world

From grazing Tibetan antelope to migrating monarch butterflies, these 50 photos of wildlife around the world capture the staggering grace of the animal kingdom. The forthcoming gallery runs sequentially from air to land to water, and focuses on birds, land mammals, aquatic life, and insects as they work in pairs or groups, or sometimes all on their own.
