Animal Rescue Volunteers (ARV), is a non-profit dog rescue group based in Simi Valley, CA. Dedicated to the welfare of abandoned and abused animals. ARV does not maintain a shelter. All rescue animals are in foster homes.
We save those in most need. We have rescued pregnant mommas, as young puppies do not do well in the shelter. We rescue the ones who do not show well in the shelter. We try to help dogs locally in our community to help prevent them from ending up in the shelter. We rescue elderly dogs so they can have a home, not the shelter, to live out their life. We rescue dogs that have been hit by cars or injured and therefore need surgery. Stop by and adopt a dog. Click on the tab above "Adopt a Pet" for the current list.

Annie was born in approximately 2013. She is a very sweet, affectionate dog who gets along with all other dogs. She is mostly potty trained with the occasional accident. She has had some tooth loss, and several teeth pulled at last dental. We generally soak her kibble to make it easier for her to chew. Annie is currently about 14.5 pounds.
Annie was rescued from the shelter. Her owner had moved and left her with friends who did not want her so they passed her along to someone else, who also didn’t want her and they left her outside, so they didn’t have to deal with her. Annie was good at escaping from their yard and would often be found wandering the neighborhood. She was finally picked up by Animal Control and brought to the shelter. Owners were contacted and relinquished Annie to the shelter. It was then discovered that Annie had a severe heart murmur that would need to be evaluated by a veterinary cardiologist. Annie’s foster mom noticed Annie having frequent episodes that looked similar to seizures but were later diagnosed as heart disease. Annie has a left Atrium leaky valve and an enlarged heart, which has been managed well with medication. She will need to remain on this medication for the rest of her life, and have regular follow up visits with a cardiologist to monitor her progress. Annie also takes a prescription Apoquel for seasonal allergies.

Raven was born in approximately 2017. She was an owner surrender as they could not afford the medical care needed. She had a luxating patella and needed surgery. We rescued her and performed the necessary surgery. She is very sweet but can have an attitude when it comes to food. She is a bit feisty with other dogs and plays very rough in a fashion that if the dog is not tolerable may interpret it as aggressive as she nips the legs. Therefore, no dogs in the home and no children.
We pay for medical and food and you provide a loving home.
Every dollar counts towards vaccinations, impound fees, medications, vet visits and surgical procedures, board and training for special cases, special required foods and diets - the list goes on - our fosters provide loving homes and YOU provide our financial ability so we can save these wonderful animals. As a result, we are successful in rescuing and placing them in a forever home!
