It's an effort to pair a shelter animal with a forever home.

It-Takes-A-Village Animal Rescue in Evansville is a shelter of second chances.

"Anything that we can do to help connect these animals to the community," says Jessa McCauley, ITV Office Manager.

Furry faces of all size waiting for a family of their own.

"It just helps demonstrate that hey this is a great potential family pet," says McCauley.

It's why the no-kill rescue is promoting their "Rent-A-Dog" Program.

"Rent-A-Dog is an opportunity for the dogs that stay full time at the shelter, to get out and get a little break from the shelter environment," says McCauley.

The initiative allows for approved patrons to take a dog out for a bit.

"They send us great photos of the dogs slurping down whipped cream and just relaxing in a backyard sometimes," says McCauley.

Those interested in the community must fill out a waiver and provide a driver's license.

It's a way for a shelter pet and renter to do some de-stressing together.

"It can also be a great opportunity to try out a breed that you didn't think you would be interested in initially," says McCauley.

If you're interested in participating these are the hours:

Tuesday, Thursday, Friday: 12-5PM

Wednesday: 12-7PM

Saturday: 10-5PM
