Ark-Valley Humane Society is a great organization to support, adopt from, or get involved with, and it's a clean and happy place to visit. It's great to be part a large group of individuals that save an amazing 98% of animals in their care.

Ark Valley Humane Society in Buena Vista is where animals are all treated with respect and kindness. I have been volunteering for many years and have seen this first hand. There is a policy of 100% TLC for all of the animals and this goal is met almost every day Cages and yards are kept clean and people coming to adopt comment on the cleanliness. What a great place for animals to wait for their fur-ever home!

Ark valley is a wonderful shelter where they strive to give their "guests" TLC every day, meaning each dog or cat gets individual attention from staff or volunteers. It is an extremely clean facility run by people whose top priority is making the transion from a pet's previous to it's forever home as smooth abnd comfortable as possible. Volunteers are held in high esteem and are given kudos at every turn. It makes volunteering feel important! I love volunteering at Ark Valley, I feel a part of a well oiled machine!
