It Takes A Village No-Kill Rescue

It Takes A Village Rescue, Inc. is a non-kill 501(c)(3) rescue dedicated to doing what it takes to find loving homes for stray, abandoned, and surrendered animals, and to keep these animals safe and free from further suffering. Our mission is "To work as one in helping homeless animals irrespective of breed, location or circumstance." By working with committed volunteers, foster homes, veterinarians and partner rescues or shelters, we are able to rescue countless animals every year and provide them with loving temporary care as we work to find them well-matched forever homes. Although we do not discriminate based on breed, size or color, we have a particular interest in bully breeds, special medical needs, senior dogs, black dogs and other hard-to-place animals.

Meet Carlton

Introducing Carlton, the epitome of the perfect balance between playfulness and cuddles! This delightful pup is ready to bring warmth and joy to his forever family with his charming personality and loving nature. Carlton has grown up surrounded by dogs and thrives in their company. He loves nothing more than getting rambunctious with his foster siblings, but he knows when it's time to settle down for some cozy snuggles with his humans. His affectionate nature and gentle demeanor make him a beloved companion for dogs of all sizes. While Carlton's interactions with cats have been limited, his friendly disposition suggests he'll get along well with feline friends too. This adaptable pup is eager to make friends with everyone he meets and spreads love wherever he goes. Carlton is fully crate trained and is a pro at sleeping through the night without any accidents or potty breaks. His potty training is well underway, and he responds wonderfully to positive reinforcement, making him a joy to train and care for. If you're ready to welcome the goodest boy of them all into your heart and home, don't hesitate to apply to adopt Carlton at Your new best friend is waiting for you!All of our dogs are examined by a veterinarian, given age-appropriate vaccinations, dewormed, microchipped, spayed or neutered, heartworm tested and treated, if necessary.
