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.

All voting is being done online. If you'd like to cast your vote for It Takes a Village, you can click here to do so. You can hear more from It Takes a Village No-Kill Rescue on its Facebook page.

A line of sustained to heavy rainfall is expected to push northeastward across the Tri-State between the hours 7AM and 11AM Thursday morning; be sure to pack an umbrella early tomorrow, as that timeline will fall during your morning commute Thursday. After the initial line of rain exits east of the region, we'll continue to see periods of scattered rainfall throughout our Thursday afternoon and evening. Unfortunately, the same can be said for our Friday - lower pressure slowly spinning eastward will stall the rainfall and prolong our precip chances as we head into Friday afternoon and evening. It looks as though those chances of rainfall throughout our Friday will be sporadic at best and shouldn't lead to any significant disruption to those Friday night football games.
