The only thing better than getting a great bargain at a yard sale is helping homeless animals while you get a great bargain at a yard sale.

 Prices are High - Secondhand is On Trend

The cost of goods and services is still on the rise and more and more people are starting to shop secondhand. Not only is it more economical, but it's also better for the environment because it keeps a lot of clothes and other household items out of landfills. Plus, if you happen to attend the annual Yard Sale hosted by It Takes a Village No-Kill Rescue, your secondhand purchases also help care for homeless animals awaiting their forever homes.

It Takes a Village No-Kill Rescue

It Takes a Village is a no-kill shelter that serves to care for homeless animals with two locations in Indiana.

  • In Vanderburgh County: 1417 N. Stockwell Road, Evansville, Indiana 47715
  • In Spencer County: 824 E County Road 800 North, Chrisney, Indiana 47611

Since first forming as a rescue in 2010, It Takes a Village has saved the lives of more than 8,500 homeless animals. Just in 2021 alone, the staff and volunteers facilitated the adoption of more than 1,000 animals between its two rescue locations.

Although we do not discriminate based on breed, size or color, we have a particular interest in helping bully breeds, black dogs, animals with medical needs and other “hard-to-place” animals. Our mission is to “work as one in helping homeless animals irrespective of breed, location or circumstance.” We are a 501(c)(3) rescue.
