    Animal Sanctuary - About
    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.


    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.

    Our Mission:

    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.

    To learn more about our the no more homeless pets movement and how you can help us make a difference for companion animals, we encourage you to read the following articles.
