My story

Emails are answered in a timely fashion. Please check your spam if you do not receive a response.



*** She needs a very experienced adopter as she has fear aggression *** She will NOT be at our adoption events due to her fear aggression. Please email to arrange a convenient time to meet Disney.



Disney was born approximately 2014 and weighs 47 lbs. She is very fearful of new people. Therefore, needs an experienced adopter who knows how to handle her properly. She needs time to adjust to her new people. Once she gets to know you, she is very loving, sweet, and affectionate. Due to her shyness, we do not recommend young kids.



She was rescued from the shelter presumably hit by a car fracturing her tail and both her right and left pelvic bones. She had her needed surgery. She has healed completely. This injury does not slow her down or prevent her from any activity.

More about this rescue

Animal Rescue Volunteers has been in business since 1995, started when our co-founders saw the need to have a rescue in our area due to the high volume of animals in the shelters who were and continue to be unnecessarily put to death due to pet over-population. We take in dogs and cats of all ages, sizes, regardless of illnesses or other maladies. We determine which pets are most at risk and focus on those first. We have taken many pets simply because of their illnesses or injuries because we know that they are least likely to be adopted by the general public. We spend thousands of dollars annually helping these animals, rehabilitating them so they may be placed into loving homes. We have no shelter per se, relying on the generosity of foster families who accept into their homes these wonderful animals who need a place to be a part of a family before moving on from us. We keep our pets until that appropriate placement has been made, no matter how long that takes. We have no paid staff. With the exception of minimal operating expenses, our money goes to the care and attention of our animals in our program.

We also work very hard in our community and other venues educating the public about the horrors of puppy mills, the tragedy of pet overpopulation, the importance of spaying and neutering their pets. We do this by disseminating literature at our adoptions, by sometimes setting up peaceful public demonstrations, and at times speaking with schools, and other community organizations.

We make ourselves available to the public to answer pet questions and refer them to various sources for help in pet-related areas.

We take any of our adoptees back for whatever reason if problems develop because we are committed to them for the rest of their lives once they become one of ARV's pets.

And we do all of this because we are passionate about our mission and the plight of the homeless, abandoned animals that have fallen victim to the uncaring people who don't see these loving creatures as possessing feeling. Our volunteers are fosters, devoting their time, 24/7. Most are long-time volunteers, who have spent hours bottle feeding and medicating unweaned puppies and kittens, seen their homes turned into medical facilities with volunteers coming in to help around the clock. We are an awesome, dedicated bunch of animal lovers who want to help these pets who otherwise have no voice to be their advocates.
