Our Pet of the Week is another FREE adoption opportunity with It Takes a Village in Evansville. Thanks to a generous sponsor, this sweet fella named J.R. has no adoption fee, which means he is FREE to the right home.

J.R. is a two-and-a-half-year-old Pit Bull-Boxer mix, combining a pit bull's intelligence with a boxer's playful energy. According to our friends at It Takes a Village, this thick and sturdy fellow is not just a dog - he's a love machine that is ready to shower his potential family with affection.

J.R. is looking for a home that can give him regular exercise, mental stimulation, and, of course, plenty of affection - a home that enjoys outdoor activities, playtime, and snuggling on the couch.

If you're interested in making J.R. a part of your family, please fill out an online adoption application, and then once approved, you can schedule a meet and greet with this lovable fella who is sure to bring joy and warmth into your home.

All the animals at It Takes a Village are examined by a veterinarian, given age-appropriate vaccinations, dewormed, microchipped, spayed or neutered, heartworm tested, and treated if necessary.

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!

25 Unusual Things Owners Say They're Pets Have Eaten

Having a pet, especially a dog, is like having a toddler all the time. If you don't see or hear them for a while, it usually means they're getting into something they're not supposed to be getting into. After my dog had to have surgery to remove a lump of carpet she had eaten, I wanted to know if there were any other strange or unusual things other people's pets have digested. How some of these animals still have working digestive systems is nothing short of a medical miracle. It's a good thing they're cute.
