Rescued Unwanted Furry Friends aka "Ruff Rescue" is a 501© 3 corporation that was founded as a "no kill" shelter. Our mission is to stop the need for euthanization by educating the public that spaying/neutering will stop the need for animal control to the point that there will only be "wanted" pups in the world. Also, our mission includes finding loving homes with responsible people who will genuinely love their pet but understands that these dogs and pups depend on the human race for protection, shelter and most importantly love. We are in search for responsible adoptive parents who will provide all preventative medicines available for their pet as prescribed by the veterinarian, medical check ups and medical care which will allow them to live long healthy lives. We require that any adopted dog or pup from Ruff shelter be given monthly heartworm preventative from a vet…flea and tick preventatives from a vet, vaccinations by a vet and to be given on time. We require room for the dog or pup to safely run and play in a secure fenced area while at the same time providing our adopted dog or pup as much love and respect as humanly possible. in order to show these dogs and pups that they have a purpose on this earth. Most importantly we feel that the dog should be respected and treated as a family member.

Our Adoption Process:
Our fees vary due to changes in vet costs for neutering and spading... and we require an adoption application that is reviewed by the board of directors as to whether accepted or not. We are very careful who adopts a dog from RUFF. We feel that they have had a tough life before they came here and we wish for them to have a wonderful "forever" home. All of our dogs are microchipped, heartworm tested, spayed/neutered and up to date on shots before they are adopted. We do not allow any dog to leave without these things unless there is a medical reason that they cannot (which is required by a doctor).
