Saving lives, one animal at a time.....


A.R.V.S.S. is a volunteer run non-profit organization --501(c)(3)-- located the Madison, Wisconsin area. All of our animals are kept in loving foster homes where they are taught social skills and basic training. It is our goal to rescue animals and to help other rescues find resources for veterinary care.

Our Foster Families
Do you have some extra time and room in your heart to foster for us? We are always looking for good homes to give our dogs and puppies a safe place to land in our rescue while we assess their health and behavior. Our foster families provide all the comfort these animals deserve as we search for their forever home. Open your hearts and doors to a foster animal! You can make a difference! Please email us to learn more about joining us to save lives - one animal at a time!
