Our Pet of the Week, THOMAS, doesn't stand on formalities - you can call him Tom Tom. He's waiting to meet you at It Takes a Village.

THOMAS is a 4-year-old terrier mix weighing about 45 pounds, and this is his second time around at ITV. THOMAS was adopted once before but was returned after his owner had to move, so now he's looking for another forever home. THOMAS has been in a few playgroups at ITV and has done pretty well, although he tends to play a bit rough with the cats. Also, our friends at ITV think THOMAS would do best with older or no children.

If you would like to meet THOMAS and see if he is a good fit for your home, go ahead and fill out an online adoption 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.
