    In January 2004, Raccoon Valley Animal Sanctuary & Rescue took the first step in becoming a no-kill animal welfare organization, a place where no animal dies to make room for another. Like many new generation animal organizations, RVAS realized that 50 years of using lethal injection as a management tool isn't decreasing the overpopulation problem, increasing overpopulation awareness or solving any behavior issues between pets and their owners, but simply, just killing innocent lives. RVAS recognizes that companion animal overpopulation is a man-made problem and we believe that it's time to step up and be the voice of compassion for these innocent victims.
    RVAS is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization where donations are our life blood.. Add precious lives to that equation and you will understand why the need for your generosity is vital for us to save these lives!

    Your donation will help us provide the tools to become Iowa's leading animal welfare organization. You can donate to our general fund or to one of our many Programs that focus our energy on a specific cause or animal related problem such as:

    • Animal Companion Programs
    • Our Rehome Program
    • Rescue & Transport
    • Neglect, Abuse & Cruelty Intervention
    • Spay & Neuter Programs, including low cost and senior citizen assistance
    • Animal Laws & Legislation
    • Education & Awareness
    • Adoption Sponsors

    Each one of these programs is dedicated to providing the necessary tools and funding to address the issue and save lives! But without your help, these changes will never be made and the 8 million companion animals being killed will only rise. Won't you consider helping us save a life?

    Your contribution can make a difference!
