RVAS - A Model to the Industry

RVAS and RESCUE should be a model for other's who are of the same mind/heart/desire to help animals who have been abused, misused, abandoned or owner surrendered find the right family/individual who will love and care for them forever! Their dedication has no limits~I've been active in Boxer Rescue for eight years to find few who have the ability to help a dog prepare for their new life or a family choose the dog that will fit their lifestyle and presonna. RVAS puts the animal first and foremost, always! Their Executive Director is an earth-Angel with the energy and compassion to work with an animal/family for the "match" one that is not temporary or a disappointment to either animal/person-family. Her sensitivity, knowledge, dedication, perserverance and sincerity have been a given that puts people at ease and gives the animal the trust they are safe! The community, county, and state where RVAS is located must indeed be so proud of the success record that most certainly reflects on the communities and it's people's desire to support and applaud the hard work of a group who is totally volunteer and unpaid! It is my sincere hope that you will thank RVAS for us both and your community where it is working to eliminate homeless animals who through no fault of their own are faced with burdens few people could endure to remain cordial and able to enlighten the lives of the family/person who will be their owner/caregiver/friend. Thank you for making space available to laud and applaud a group who deserves our recognition and support. Elaine Gorea

dogs best friend!

and cats too! This rescue has done what has needed to be done by more rescues for years now-they have looked at what the animals TRULY need, realize that that will differ from animal to animal, and then they do it. They are not out to look good in the rescue world. They are out to save as many animals as they can! Too many owners, especially dog owners, are looking for a guilt free place to dump their dog. They want a rescue who claims to be no kill so they can have the peace of mind (ignorance is bliss as they say) that the are not killing their dog. This rescue tells the owners to wake up! This animal is yours and your responsibility-we'll help you rehome your animal if that is really the best option, but YOU, as the responsible owner, need to be part of that rehoming process, but first, lets actually look at how we can keep the animal in the home with BOTH species (animal and owner) happy! RVAS also works extremely hard at educating owners and potential owners. Having an animal is not just something you jump into on a whim. They make sure the owners know what they are getting into and what responsibilities they will have to take on. They truly understand what their animals need and do everything they can to provide them with it.

Rehabilitate Dogs? Yes we can!

RVAS&R is not your ordinary dog shelter, in fact it's not a shelter at all, it's a dog's best chance in Iowa for finding a new forever home. First of all, they work to keep the dog from being surrendered in the first place by teaching owners about how to deal with behavior issues. Or they may find a foster care. And they train, train, train humans on how to be a pack leader for dogs theirs' or their fosters. It's long, hard work to do things this way, but saves untold lives. Look for RVAS&R's display booth in the community informing the public about the horrors of puppy mills or the joys of having a calm submissive dog. They will show you success stories of using the methods and tools of Cesar Millan, The Dog Whisperer on National Geographic Channel, or they'll encourage you to find a local trainer - whatever methods that work for the owner and help the dog. You won't find more dedicated people - anywhere. The director is my friend. Just call to see what you can do to help save dogs and you'll find out, as I have, that RVAS&R is a place to be proud of, a place to learn from, and, happily, a place that is on the brink of expansion to help even more dogs stay at home or find a new forever home.
