Pets at Our Rescue Group:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:Raccoon Valley Animal Sanctuary & Rescue is Iowa's leading no-kill animal welfare organization serving Iowa and surrounding states.
About Our Rescue Group:In 2004 Raccoon Valley Humane Society reorganized from a traditional (kill) shelter and became Iowa's leading no-kill animal welfare organization.
RVAS is dedicated to the animal welfare industry's problems by providing "solutions" to pet owners problems.
Through programs like our rehabiliation and rehome program, low-cost spaying & neutering, special needs match-up programs, and many others, RVAS has been able to keep 65% of the pets in their home by owners who wanted to surrender them to a shelter.
Our mission is to eliminate the neglect, abuse and abandonment of companion animals caused by human ignorance, intolerance and indifference. And to celebrate the joys created by the human-animal bond by education and example.
Come Meet our Pets:RVAS is active in many of the local "mobile adoption" events, as well as, special events which feature our companions.
RVAS also makes viewing of our companions available through appointments.

Our Adoption Process:RVAS has three Phases to their adoption process to ensure that all companions find the right homes for life. With a less than 1% return rate on our adoptions, RVAS makes sure that you and your companion will have a "lifetime" match so these companions never enter shelter life again. We do not adopt on a "first-come-first-serve" basis. Instead, RVAS focuses on the human-animal bond making the best match for both the human and the companion...for life!
