It Takes a Village No-Kill Rescue is hosting a PAWty for the pups and you're invited!

Dress Up & Help The Pups

It Takes a Village No-Kill Rescue is a rescue with two locations - one in Vanderburgh County and the other in Spencer County. It Takes a Village works hard to help the homeless animals in our community. The cost of food for the animals in their care, along with vet bills, not to mention the cost of general maintenance to keep the rescue flowing can get really pricey. But you can help by joining in on the fun during their 9th Annual Paws and Claws Black and White Pawty presented by Lux Motors.

More About It Takes a Village

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.
