Sandie's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, and up to date with shots.

Sandie's Story...
Sandie is a senior canine, is in need of a new home that can give her the love she deserves. She is looking for a home that has a lot of time to include her in their lives. Sandie is housebroken, knows her basic commands and is low in energy.

Sandie will require short frequent walks to properly exercise her (a minimum of 2 a day), but handles well on a leash and being a senior sleeps quite a bit. For more information on Sandie’s special needs please contact 515.577.1745.

RVAS is looking for homes for life! We practice and support Cesar Millan's philosophy (National Geographic's The Dog Whisperer). We are here to make certain the canine companion you are looking at is the right match for you by matching their energy, behavior and personality elements with your leadership.

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, as well as, special events which feature our companions.

RVAS also makes viewing of our companions available through appointments.

To learn more about our mobile adoption events, please visit http://www.raccoonvalley.com/events/calendar.html

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!
