EMMA KAT is one of 4 kittens that were part of a TNR project, transferred to RVAS for rehabilitation. She is very bonded to her sister Trixie, who came to us with a healed broken leg.

She is a reserved kitten at first, an observer, but once she trusts you is very playful and sweet. Emma Kat will take a patient owner to allow her to warm up on her own time. She will do best in a quiet home, and will thrive in a home with other cats, as long as they accept each other.

She is approximately 6 months old, up to date in all shots, spayed and microchipped. She is an indoor only cat, and will need to be isolated for quite some time to adapt to her surroundings.

Emma Kat will require someone very experienced in cat behavior, but will be well worth the time invested.


Many of our animals reside in foster homes, therefore we require an approved application prior to meeting the companion to respect our fosters privacy.

About Raccoon Valley Animal Sanctuary & Rescue

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 at Petco Stores in Clive & Ames, Iowa, as well as, special events which feature our companions around central Iowa.

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!
