This beautiful short-haired kitty is CARMEN, our Pet of the Week from It Takes a Village in Evansville.

CARMEN was surrendered to ITV with her adorable kittens, and now it's her turn to find the loving home she truly deserves. CARMEN has been an incredible mother, caring for her kittens with unconditional love. She has helped them become confident and well-mannered little furballs. Now that her motherly duties are complete, CARMEN is ready to embark on her own feline adventure!

CARMEN is currently available for foster or adoption, so please go ahead and fill out an online adoption application, and then schedule a meet and greet with our pet of the week. If you aren't able to adopt right now, perhaps you could foster an animal from ITV. Fostering is FREE and always welcome.

All of the animals at ITV are examined by a veterinarian, given age-appropriate vaccinations, dewormed, 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!
