CARDEN is one of the newest residents at It Takes a Village. The 5-month-old male Terrier mix was a stray until he got rescued by ITV - now CARDEN needs a loving foster home while he gets prepared for adoption.

The sweet fella is looking for someone to show him home in time for a yummy Thanksgiving meal.

As you can see, CARDEN is a small fella, and our friends at It Takes a Village tell us that smaller dogs are in high demand right now. Keep this in mind - if you are approved as his foster during vetting process, you will get the first chance to adopt CARDEN.

So, what do you think? If you'd like to foster CARDEN (or any other animal at ITV), go ahead and fill out an online foster 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!

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.
