It Takes a Village No-Kill Rescue is looking for votes in a contest to win $12,000.
The nonprofit organization is participating in the Freshpet "Fresh Start" program, which will award five $12,000 grants to shelters across the United States. Two runner-up organizations in each region will also be awarded $3,000 each.
It Takes a Village says that it's currently in first place in the nation, but that it's trying to maintain that position with the community's support, as Tuesday, Sept. 28, is the last day of voting.
In total, over $100,000 will be distributed through the Freshpet Fresh Start program. Funds awarded through the program will be used to support overlooked animals. It Takes a Village has locations in Evansville, Indiana, and a location in Spencer County.
