    RVAS recognizes the challenges regarding the welfare, laws and treatment of our animal companions. That's why we don't try to do it all by ourselves. We believe that by working together, we can find alternatives to euthanasia used as a management tool to control overpopulation.

    We do this through partnering with organizations that focus on specific animal welfare causes and who are succeeding in their efforts to provide education, awareness and no-kill solutions.

    We do this by supporting businesses who support animal welfare, both regionally and nationally.

    We do this by providing resource information so that every pet owner can be the very best they can be for their companion.

    We do this because it is, and always has been, our goal to have a world where companion animals are given the opportunity to live and die with dignity.

    We encourage you to support those who support RVAS and animal welfare. By working together, we can save lives!
