    Adoption
    Thank you for considering one of our companions for adoption. Our animals are housed in individual foster homes, socialized with other animals, children and learning appropriate behavior. They are healthy, well cared for, and can be viewed once an application is completed. This method allows us to know our animals personalities, provide any special care they made need, and create balanced companions which transition easily into your home. Our goal is to match you with a companion for a lifetime.

    Our adoption fees and services are listed below along with our three phase adoption process. If you are attempting to "surrender" your companion, please read our Rehome/Rehabilitation Program before contacting RVAS.

    We have companions looking for new homes everyday, so please check back often if you don't see a companion of interest.. RVAS networks with many animal welfare organizations and have listed just a few of our adoption partners. These partners are organizations that share our philosophy that all life is sacred and every companion animal deserves a home. You can also expand your search by visiting petfinder.com.


    PRE-ADOPT APPLICATION
    PLEASE READ OUR ADOPTION PROCESS before submitting an application. Applications are processed Tuesday through Friday during normal business hours (10:00 am - 5:00 pm). A confirmation email will be sent to you once your application is received. If you do not receive this confirmation, please contact us directly at 515.577.1745.

    RVAS ADOPTION PROCESS

    RVAS has three Phases to their adoption process to ensure that all companions find the right homes for life. We have a 99% success rate with our adoptions. We do not adopt on a "first-come-first-serve" basis. RVAS focuses on the human-animal bond making the best match for the lifetime of both.

    • PHASE I - APPLICATION PROCESS
      Complete an application in full and submit to RVAS. Applications are processed in the order in which they are received and may take 3-7 days to process depending on reference availability. This process does not guarantee you a companion nor are you committed to adopting a companion. Failure to fill out the pre-adoption application accurately and completely may cause a delay in the processing of your application. Applications are processed during normal business hours (10:00 am - 5:00 pm) Tuesday through Friday.
    • PHASE II - An RVAS representative will contact you to coordinate a viewing of the companion , as well as, answer any questions at that time. Temperment, behavior and care will be discussed at this time. We recommend you do research on your own of the breed you are interested in and make a list of questions to ask our staff.This may take 2-3 days to coordinate pending availability of both the potential adopter and it's foster home.
    • PHASE III - A home visit and final interview with an RVAS Adoption Director will be scheduled. This phase requires all members of the household present and can take up to 2 hours to complete.Once approved, RVAS will coordinate the delivery or pick up of the companion where the final processing of all the adoption paperwork is done.

    We understand you are excited to find a new companion and we will do our best to expedite the adoption process, but "life-saving" emergencies and rescues come first. These animals are in immediate need and may cause a delay in the processing of your application.

    Applicants are notified by telephone, email and/or U.S. mail of the status and progress of their application during the processing portion and our final decision.

    RVAS is not responsible for email applications not received. If you would like to check the status of your application simply email status@raccoonvalley.com or call 515.577.1745.
