TRIXIE is a sweet, incredibly playful and loving young female.

She and her sibling Emma Kat were part of a TNR project, but because of her domestic disposition she was not returned to the wild, but transferred to RVAS for rehabilitation.

She is a little over a year old and gets along with other cats.

Trixie's special needs is her leg. She came to RVAS with a severely broken right rear leg that had healed prior to her arrival. Trixie has adapted to her twisted leg, but may need surgery or amputation in a year or two. 

RVAS will work with her adopter should a surgery take place later on.

Despite her special needs, everything about her is normal, and she loves to snuggle at night.


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!
