Our Pet of the Week, RIP, is in search of a forever home where he can share his love and companionship. He's available for adoption right now at It Takes a Village in Evansville.

ITV is having a fantastic adoption special during the month of October. All pets over 6 months will have a reduced adoption fee of only $50 for dogs and $25 for cats!

Here's even better news - the adoption fee for RIP here is $0!

So, let's take a look at RIP. This beautiful boy is a 3.5-year-old chocolate and tan Doberman. He gets along well with submissive small/medium dogs, making him a great addition to multi-pet households. RIP has also lived with a cat, so he's accustomed to feline friends.

Start the adoption process by applying at ITVrescue.org. Don't miss the chance to welcome Rip into your life and create lasting memories together.

All of the animals at ITV are examined by a veterinarian, given age-appropriate vaccinations, dewormed, 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!
