CHANCE is a mid-size 2-year-old Aussie Shepherd/Lab mix who weighs about 45 pounds. CHANCE was a stray in Spencer County for over a year. He was in bad shape before being rescued by It Takes a Village. Well, just look at him now - CHANCE is in great shape and has now been approved to be adopted! CHANCE has been fostered at a pet daycare and he's been such a good boy, sharing his happy energy with the rest of the animals there.

The fee to adopt sweet CHANCE is just $9.95 through the end of the month. So, don't wait, fill out an online adoption application and set up a meet and greet with this handsome fella now.

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.

SEE: 15 Animals You Cannot Own in Evansville

I got the idea for this after seeing an article by Michelle Heart with our Townsquare Media sister-station, 107.9 Lite-FM in Boise, Idaho. She had discovered several animals residents in that city can't own based on city codes she found online which got me thinking about whether Evansville had any regulations that were similar. Obviously, they did or this article wouldn't exist. Chapter 14, Article 3, section 42 and 43 spell out a lengthy list of exotic animals you can get in trouble owning if local officials find out. You can see the entire list on the city's website. These are the 15 I found to be the most interesting.
