This is MICHELLE, our Pet of the Week from It Takes a Village in Evansville. She is a 1-year-old Lab mix with that gorgeous brindle coat, and she is ready to find a forever home.

MICHELLE is full of energy and playfulness - she is always down for a game of fetch or she's content to simply run around the yard, acting like a silly puppy. One thing is for sure, rer enthusiasm is contagious, making her the perfect companion for an active family.

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!
