Indiana Shelter Rescues Dog from Death Row – Now He Needs a Forever Home
Our Pet of the Wee, DERBY, is smiling because he's happy to be alive, and he's patiently waiting to be adopted from It Takes a Village. Our Pet of the Week is sponsored by Walther's Golf & Fun.
DERBY was rescued from death row at a shelter in Texas. He is a 4-year-old Australian Shepherd mix who weighs about 50 pounds. DERBY has a sweet personality and does a good job around kids, cats, and other dogs - plus, he's great on a leash.
Look at that face, look at that smile - DERBY looks like he could be a movie star, doesn't he? His adoption fee is $200, by the way.
If you'd like to meet this adorable fella, please complete an online adoption application. Once you're approved you can schedule a meet & greet with DERBY.
All of the animals at ITV are examined by a veterinarian, given age-appropriate vaccinations, microchipped, spayed or neutered, and FIV/FeLV-tested.
If our pet of the week isn’t the right fit for your home, please visit It Takes a Village to see the other rescues that need to get fostered and adopted. And don't forget about their RENT A DOG Program. A quick fill form and copy of your photo ID will allow you time out with one of ITV's vetted shelter dogs. These day dates are great for the rescues - it gets them some exercise and new information to help us get them adopted. It’s been a big hit- so don’t miss out!
