Save an Animal

Adopting a Pet

So you’ve decided to save a life. That’s terrific! Check out our adoptable pets and start the adoption process. Our goal is to have the very best home for all our dogs, but we do give preference to the first application.

What we do

Our Rescue

Rescuing Pets

It Takes A Village Animal Rescue is a small 501(c)(3) rescue, founded October 28, 2014. Our rescue is not breed-specific. The founder, Cindi Moulson is helping where she can, hoping to make a difference in animals’ lives. It takes people like you to help her…it truly takes a village

Animal Licensing

All dogs age 6 months or older must be  licensed with the State they live in. We make sure our animals are vaccinated, micro-chipped, and spayed/neutered (over 6 months of age).

Finding Pets a Home

We save over 390 dogs. With your help, we can save many more lives and give them the loving home they deserve. 

Spay & Neuter

We pull dogs from down South to keep them from being euthanized.  We spay/neuter all age appropriate animals.

What Drives Us

Our Mission

Each year, approximately 2.7 million adoptable dogs and cats are euthanized in the U.S. alone, simply because people choose to buy pets instead of adopting them. We can dramatically reduce the number of euthanized animals if more people adopted pets instead of buying them.

Get Involved

Volunteering comes in many forms. Of course, we always need help keeping our animals socialized, so come hang out, play and walk our dogs. We could also use help in other areas, including fundraising, cleaning, clerical work, and social media.

Sally Needs Your Support

Sally came to us today, 7/5/19 with sarcoptic mange (the contagious kind). She is only about 4 months old and so loving (and itchy). But now that we’ve rescued her, she will be on the mend. Sally has to be kept away from all the other animals at the rescue, so the poor girl is all alone in her kennel. But she has plenty of toys and we will be going out to play with her often. She is scheduled for a visit to the vet soon, and will have to be in quarantine for about 4 to 6 weeks. Donate if you can to help with her, and our rescue’s vet expenses.

Pet Adoption Notes

Adopting VS Buying

You are making a decision to save a life!  You’re also making a choice not to support puppy mills that put profit far above the welfare of animals. Most animals raised in these mills are housed in poor conditions with improper medical care. They are often in poor health and have ongoing behavior and health problems due to lack of socialization and human companionship, and are often inbred. Mill animals are sold to unsuspecting consumers in pet stores, over the Internet, and through newspaper classified advertisements.

How to Find the Perfect Pet

We have plenty of healthy, well-behaved animals waiting for a home. We examine and vaccinate animals when they arrive, and spay/neuter them before adoption. In addition to providing medical care, we assess the pet’s personality and behaviors to match pets with the ideal owners.

Friends of the Rescue

We thank those who have generously donated their time and money to our Rescue.

Our animals are fortunate to have such great volunteers. With their help, we are able to build our next set of kennels, so we can save more lives!
