Dear RVHS Community,
I hope this letter finds you and your family healthy and safe during these uncertain times. It is with a sad and heavy heart that RVHS must join the millions of other businesses and temporarily close to the public as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic. It is essential we keep our staff and volunteers safe as well as do our part to minimize the spread of the virus. Being a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that relies on fundraising, donations and grants to serve our community, we are currently feeling the negative financial impact of this situation. We receive no Federal, State, County, or City funding….you, our wonderful community has been what has kept our doors open for over 55 years! If you find a little extra after your family is taken care of, please help us take care of our four-legged RVHS family members, they have no voice.
Sadly, businesses across our region are feeling the social and economic affects of the world wide health emergency. We will continue our fundraising efforts to help in the planning of our reopening. There will be even more reason to continue our services as a result of this crisis.
Although the majority of our employees will be laid off temporarily, we will maintain a skeleton crew. Staff will tend to the animals in our care that are not ready for adoption, our ani-meals program will continue for our seniors and phone calls will be answered to the best of our ability. Our services may be paused but we especially now, need your financial assistance to continue these essential services.
We understand that these are stressful times for everyone and wish you they very best. Again, thank you for your continued support and understanding. We will be back in business just as soon as feasibly and safely possible and with community support, we will be stronger than ever!

Because the Numbers Count
Despite the hard work of shelters and rescues everywhere, it is estimated that millions of dogs and cats enter America’s shelters each year, and more than half of them will never leave. While great progress has been made, accurate and comprehensive nation-wide data does not exist. It’s precisely this data that will guide good decision-making, and help us save thousands of sheltered animals’ lives. The numbers really do count..
Thank you A & M Transport!
Your donation of 40,000 lbs of pet food will feed many pets!!! Many thanks for your generosity!
