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.
