This little fella is GOLIATH, our Pet of the Week. He just arrived at It Takes a Village, and we're ready to get him out of there.

GOLIATH is a recent rescue from Evansville Animal Control. He is an adult Miniature Pinscher, weighing in at about 10 pounds. Since he is/was a stray, our friends at ITV really don't know much else about his background.

What we do know is that GOLIATH is a sweet boy, and we know that he needs a foster. He won't be available for adoption until the vetting process can be completed, and in the meantime, we don't want him to spend a minute longer at the shelter than he needs to. So, we're hoping some loving folks set up a meet & greet with GOLIATH, and considering fostering him. If that sounds like something you might be interested in, go ahead and fill out an online foster application.




Remember, when you foster an animal, you get the first chance to adopt, or ITV can give you another set of paws when she adopts which will help save another life.

All of the animals at ITV are examined by a veterinarian, given age-appropriate vaccinations, microchipped, spayed or neutered, and FIV/FeLV-tested.

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!
