In my humble opinion, there are very few reasons that you would need to surrender your fur baby. If you are serving our country, and you get deployed overseas, that is totally understandable. That is what has happened to this sweet senior dog.

She has been living with a family member, but now that family is moving and cannot keep her. So heartbreaking. Now, It Takes a Village needs to find her a home as soon as possible.

The family will be overseas for another year.

This Australian Shepherd Mix sweetheart is 13 years old and just likes to take it easy. This would not be a good fit for families with little kids. She moves kind of slowly and has arthritis. I can picture this sweet old girl sitting on a couch just watching her programs.

HELP NEEDED ASAP!!! We have a Military family that is stationed over seas and they will be there for another year. Their 13 year old girl is staying with a family member who is unable to keep her due to a move. ALL NEGATIVE COMMENTS WILL BE DELETED AND BANNED!
They love their girl dearly and do not want to give her up. They say she does fine with children but would do best with older ones as she does have arthritis and is slow moving so we do not want little ones falling on her. She seems to ignore everyone and keeps to herself. She had been with other dogs in the past but none recently and we do not know how she does with other animals.

Fostering Facts from It Takes a Village:

  • ITV Rescue will cover all the veterinary expenses as well as crates and any other supplies you will need.  If any vetting is necessary while a foster dog is in your care, ITV covers the costs as long as it is ITV that makes the appointment with our veterinarians.
  • All of the ITV dogs are altered, dewormed, and vaccinated while in their foster homes, and we do need fosters who are able and willing to work with scheduling! However, we completely understand that a vast majority of our fosters work, so transportation to appointments can be arranged.
  • Because of our limited resources, many foster homes choose to further help the rescue by providing their own dog food or heartworm/flea prevention.  We will provide donated food, however, if requested by the foster.

LOOK: Here Are 30 Foods That Are Poisonous to Dogs

To prepare yourself for a potential incident, always keep your vet's phone number handy, along with an after-hours clinic you can call in an emergency. The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center also has a hotline you can call at (888) 426-4435 for advice.

Even with all of these resources, however, the best cure for food poisoning is preventing it in the first place. To give you an idea of what human foods can be dangerous, Stacker has put together a slideshow of 30 common foods to avoid. Take a look to see if there are any that surprise you.
