What We Do
As an animal welfare organization, our area of expertise is in helping animals. This sounds simple, but it means being whatever animals need us to be; we're transport coordinators and drivers to save the lives of dogs in overfull, high-kill shelters in the south. We're teachers, educating the public on the importance of microchipping, vaccinating, spaying and neutering. We're caregivers, nurturing weak newborn puppies and kittens, feeding them by bottle if necessary and serving as birthing coach and a source of comfort to scared dog and cat moms-to-be. We're emergency workers, dropping everything to drive sick animals to get emergency medical care. We're community organizers, planning mass vaccine and microchipping events and our annual The Village Dog Days of Summer, where pet lovers can gather for a day of fun and learning. We're public speakers; we're business owners; we're website designers and accountants and grant writers. We're everything for these animals because we're all they have and we take that responsibility seriously.
Our Mission Statement
It Takes A Village Animal Rescue & Resources is a 501C3 foster-based animal rescue. We provide nourishment, medical care, love and shelter to homeless animals while searching for their forever homes. Our mission is simply to protect and advocate for companion animals in need and to promote and provide the resources, education and programs that our community needs to adequately address animal welfare issues.
