Our Thursday Pet of the Week has got to be one of the most unique mixes at It Takes a Village. CHARA is a beautiful girl looking for a forever home.


CHARA is a 4-year-old, 49-pound Catahoula and corgi mix, a unique combination that has given her a beautiful merle coat and short legs. CHARA was an owner surrender to a partner shelter. She previously lived with another dog and did well with submissive dogs when fed separately. She is said to be house-trained and goes to the door and circles when she needs to go out.


Would you like to meet CHARA? If so, please go ahead and fill out an online adoption application, and then schedule a meet & greet.

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!

Because the regulation of exotic animals is left to states, some organizations, including The Humane Society of the United States, advocate for federal, standardized legislation that would ban owning large cats, bears, primates, and large poisonous snakes as pets.
