The review just below this one is wrong on so many levels. First off, 90% of AAVA's rescued animals are in foster homes of volunteers, most of whom have full time jobs and families. All sick dogs or cats pulled from the shelter are nursed back to good health, spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and treated by a veterinarian for every possible ailment prior to being offered for adoption. Where AAVA differs from many other rescues, and why their financial situation may be on the critical list, is due to the fact they don't just pick and choose the cute puppies or purebred dogs whose adoption fees will more than cover what it costs to have them vetted. I foster for them and everything that I need for my fosters is always responded to. If having 3 fosters, (all of whom are treated the same as my own 2 dogs; well fed and allowed to take up space on furniture) make me a so-called "hoarder", then so be it. Potential adopters are screened and follow-ups are done by volunteers. A small percentage of healthy rescued dogs are boarded, but only because there is a lack of available foster home space. Those in boarding along with fosters are taken to pet adoption events weekly.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

It is the public, not the rescue that I would like to make changes to.

I foster and transport for this rescue.These ladies amaze me at their loving,nurturing dispositions and passion to save owner surrendered or stray animals from a horrific death in a gas chamber.I currently have 5 of their foster dogs and have driven countless animals to their new leases on life.Because of this organization,I have hope in humanity again!

This charity is amazing. They save companion animals from a high kill gas chamber facility that allows no public adoptions. The only hope for these animals is through rescue. They are an extremely hard working group of volunteers with families and jobs that devote every spare minute to fight against this horribly inhumane form of euthanasia.
