ARVO is pleased to participate in A-CHILL, a 4-year Indian Education Demonstration project being conducted in the Alaska Gateway and Yukon-Koyukuk School Districts and their communities.
A-CHILL engages rural youth in various academic subjects through learning with sled dogs. It is a fascinating, ground-breaking, and comprehensive initiative. ARVO's role is to help eradicate Parvo Virus in the participating villages through education and an aggressive vaccination program.

Welcome, and thank you for visiting!
Alaska Rural Veterinary Outreach, Inc., (ARVO) is a 501(c)(3) all-volunteer, non-profit organization. Our mission is to provide quality veterinary care, with a focus on spay-neuter surgery, a helping hand, and advocacy and education for Alaska's rural pets and their people.
Our goal is to reduce the number of homeless, unwanted rural pets, reduce the high incidence of dog bites, especially to children, and increase the overall safety and health of rural communities.
If you have ever wondered how you might help rural pets, so far away, so logisitically hard to reach, we invite you to join our mission by donating, volunteering, and advocating for Alaska's rural pets.
