|Raccoon Valley Animal Sanctuary & Rescue believes that all life is sacred and that every companion animal has the right to live a full and joyful life. We pride ourselves in making "lifetime matches" between owners and companions, resulting in less than 1% of our animals being returned to any shelter environment.
WHO WE ARE
Raccoon Valley Animal Sanctuary & Rescue is a 501(c)3 non-profit, charitable and educational animal welfare organization. RVAS does not receive any government funding and relies solely on the contributions of public donors.
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.
