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.
