It Takes a Village No-Kill Animal Rescue has issued a desperate plea for individuals willing and able to foster cats and kittens.

Kitten Season is Here

Kitten season is here. It's the time of year when rescues and shelters all across the country are overrun with litters of stray, abandoned, and unwanted kittens. This influx of kittens results in overpopulation in shelters and in some of them, hard decisions have to be made because of a lack of space.

Too Many Animals & Not Enough Space

Evansville's own It Takes a Village No-Kill Rescue is no different. The rescue announced via social media, that because they are currently overly full with cats and kittens, they have had to stop accepting intakes for the time being.

Unfortunately, we need to make the decision to close our intake until we can move animals out of the ITV Rescue Centers.

How To Help

You can help It Takes a Village by stepping up to foster. By fostering a cat, kitten, or litter of kittens in your own home, you open up valuable space within the rescue so they can take more animals into their care.

We are overwhelmed with animals right now, cats in particular from kitten season. We are in dire need of kitty caretakers and fosters... can help us by fostering please complete a foster application at

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.
