Before I tell you anything else about ZIPPY, you need to know that his adoption fee has been sponsored - that means he's FREE to adopt!


ZIPPY is an energetic, loving, and loyal fella who craves human interaction - but it's important to know that he really enjoys cats too. ZIPPY is also open to meeting female dogs and has the potential to form friendly and playful relationships with them.

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!
