This gorgeous gal is ROWENA, our Pet of the Week from It Takes a Village in Evansville. She is a one and a half-year-old Lab mix who is hoping to find a loving forever home.

I'm sure one of the first things you noticed about ROWENA is that one crystal blue eye, which adds an extra touch of uniqueness to her already charming presence. But ROWENA is more than just a beautiful face, she is also a great companion.


ROWENA has a playful spirit, and she especially enjoys playing with other dogs her size. She loves humans but isn't so fond of cats - they tend to make her a bit nervous. However, our friends at ITV say that with proper introductions and patience, she could learn to coexist peacefully with feline friends.

So, if you're ready to welcome a furry friend into your home who's as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside, then please consider adopting ROWENA. Fill out an online adoption application and then schedule a time to come and meet her.

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!
