Ruff Start Rescue is dedicated to saving the lives of animals in need. We improve animal welfare in communities through adoption, education, and providing resources for people and pets.

Ruff Start Rescue rescues stray, neglected, abandoned, and surrendered dogs, cats, and critters. We work hard to place them into new, loving homes.

We rescue an average of 275 animals a month. Many of these animals come from horrible living situations or overcrowded shelters where their time is limited. We're able to step in and step up for these animals, provide outstanding veterinary care, and find them loving forever homes because of generous animal welfare advocates like you.

Ruff Start doesn't receive any local, state, or federal funding. We depend on people just like you to help cover medical costs and provide the supplies these animals need to thrive.

Thank you for joining Ruff Start in our mission to do #whateverittakes to save as many companion animals as we can. Together, we can do so much good for so many in need.
