• We need HELP - please!!  ARV is solely foster-based - the number of dogs and cats we can save is directly related to the number of foster homes we have.  Are you are loving, caring and responsible? Love cats and/or dogs? We'd like to ask you to open your home and help us foster a cat or dog from our local shelter so that they are not euthanized. If you can foster either a cat or a dog, email us at staff@arvsimi.org
  • What does it mean to be a volunteer foster family? You will receive unconditional love from your foster. You will feel happy knowing you helped to save your foster's life... the gratification is priceless!  Responsibilities of a foster family are as easy as A-B-C:  a) give unconditional love, b) feed, give shelter and exercise, c) try and teach your foster good from bad behavior, d) bath and brush when necessary, e) provide a safe fenced yard for dogs, f) provide a safe inside home only for cats and g) drop off at adoptions on Saturdays at 11:30am and pick up at 4pm if not adopted.
