  • 1. Very knowledgeable staff

    by: BarbaraRushman

    I visited this shelter to drop a donation but have known the director Sue Sternberg for years. She is awesome. She has sacraficed everything in her life for the betterment of these animals and works dilligently to make the right matches for them. I believe training is available on site also. The runs were colorful and dutch doors were used so that there were no bars between you and the animals.


    knowledgeable staff, bright and cheery

    Sue and her staff do a great job in evaluating and placing friendly dogs into loving homes. Check them out!

  • 3. More a Home for Animals than an Animal Shelter

    by: Fluffybrains

    I spent a week at this shelter on a training course. This is where shelters organisations should come to find out how a shelter should be run. The staff are dedicated to each and every dog. They ensure each dog is matched properly to the right setting and during their stay each dog is treated like a member of the family. The are perfectly temperament tested, well cared for and more importantly loved while they wait for their forever home. The on-site facility also offers training and agility classes. Cannot say enough about this wonderful asset to the dog community.


    Dedicated Staff

    RVAA will make sure that you end up with the right dog. All dogs are temperment tested, vetted and given a chance to see if it is the right fit for its family.\nThe runs are warm, friendly, comfortable.\nGreat place to find the right dog.


    Goal is to make the right match


    They make sure of the right match

  • 5. A different place

    by: boobafetta

    I stopped in here after our family dog passed.\r\n\r\nIt was different from anything I've seen before - the dogs had lots of space and the place was very clean.\r\n\r\nThey also had a wide variety of ages and breeds which was great.\r\n\r\nThe staff was unfriendly though.


    clean and big - great selection of breeds


    staff not impressive
