In order to ensure our animals receive the best possible "furever" homes, RVAR's adoption process may include before and after adoption home visits, phone calls following adoption to see how the animal is adjusting or a short trial period adoption.
Dogs - Adoption fees range from $175-and up.
Cats - Adoption fees range from $75-$100.

Cassie & Baby
Female - Cassie
This is Cassie! She is a 2 yr old female Hound mix! She is super sweet and has ALOT of energy so she does require a fenced in yard. She loves to do zoomies around the yard. She loves to throw her toys up in the air and try to catch them. She also loves to play in the snow. She does get along with other dogs.
This is Baby! He is a 1 yr old male Terrier mix! Unfortunately Baby has not had a good start to 2021. At the end of 2020 he unexpectedly lost his dad and is back with us to find his furever home. Baby just wants to find his new furever home with a family that will love him unconditionally. Are you that family? Do you have all the love you can give to this sweet baby?
