I don't know about you, but just knowing that there are doggies needing good homes right now makes me want to take them all home. Unfortunately, I can't, but maybe you will find a sweet fur baby to add to your family.

It Takes a Village is running a July 4th Freedom Adoption Special now through Friday, July 2, 2021. The adoption fee for dogs six months and older is only $40! This fee includes their microchip registration, too.

I have to share a few of the sweet doggies that need homes as soon as possible. Just look at that smile on Bailey's face. She is a five-year-old female shepherd mix that needs some serious snuggles.

I've never heard of the name Hamball, but it seems to fit this cutie perfectly.

If you can't adopt or foster a pet, you can help out It Takes a Village with supplies and donations. Plus, their annual yard sale is coming up on July 10, 2021.

NOTE: Visual breed identification in animals is unreliable, so for most of the animals It Takes a Village can only guess at the predominant breed or breed mix. ITV gets to know each animal as an individual and do their best to describe each of the animals based on personality, not by breed label.

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!
