Hi. My name is Audrey. I'm a nine year old Pit Bull looking for my retirement home. 


I haven't had a very good life so far, I've had lots of puppies and I have a lot of scars on the front of my body. I'm looking for a good loving home to spend my golden years. Since I'm older I like to sleep a lot and I'm pretty mellow, but I do like to go for walks and sometimes I get the zoomies. 


My foster mom says I'm very affectionate and well behaved. She says that I'm a 60 pound lap dog, but that's not a bad thing. I love to give hugs and kisses and I love to cuddle. I'm also really good at sitting, laying down, shaking your hand, walking on a leash, riding in a car, I take treats gently from your hand and I'm potty trained. My foster mom says I would be "the best dog anybody could ask for" because I just want to be loved and give love. 


My foster mom really wanted to adopt me but I'm nervous that her resident dogs will eat my food. I've always had to fight for my meals so I don't trust other dogs yet. I need to be in a home where I am the only pet so I don't have to worry about another dog stealing my food.


If you are looking for a new best friend please consider fostering or adopting me. My foster mom would  love to talk to you about how great I am! Please contact Ruff Start so we can start our life together.

About Ruff Start Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Who We Are & How We Do It

We are a small, but mighty, Non Profit 501c3 Rescue. We are a No-Kill dog and cat rescue organization in Central Minnesota. Our rescue is composed solely of volunteers who love animals. We rescue stray, neglected, abandoned, and surrendered dogs and cats and work very hard to place them in new loving homes.

This group is comprised ENTIRELY of volunteers who work full-time doing something that pays the mortgage. We do the rescue stuff (which is our true passion) after work and on the weekends. So if your phone calls or emails are not answered by a live person right away, it’s probably because we are at work and will call you as soon as we can!

By Choice

We do not have a shelter. We are of the belief that a home environment is far more desirable than a shelter or kennel. So, we rely exclusively on homes like yours in which to place our pets until they find their forever home!

We work exclusively with a foster-care program where our pet lives with you, and we pay for or provide everything. A home environment is always the most desirable and with the endless supply of animals needing homes, we just never have enough lined up. Sometimes the foster lasts a week, sometimes several months. A dog or cat will do far better adjusting when they are sitting by your chair or next to you while you are on the computer than stashed in a noisy kennel somewhere surrounded by sick and barking dogs.

We Can't Take Every Surrendered Pet
Because we don’t have a shelter, we can only take a new animal IF we have a vacant foster home for the pet to live while we seek a new forever home for him. OR, if you agree to hang onto the pet while we help them find a new home. Sadly, we are not able to assist every animal that crosses our path. There are just too many dogs & cats out there who need help. But, we DO have an extensive list of people looking for specific dogs and cats - so if you can hang onto your pet for a little longer, we might be able to assist you in placing them. No promises, but we promise to do our very best to help you find your pet their new forever home!

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our animals are in foster homes. If you would like to meet a foster animal, please fill out an application on our website:! We also have our animals available at adoption events at local Petsmarts! (Monticello, Maple Grove, and Coon Rapids).

Our Adoption Process...

The adoption process we go through is to have the potential adopter fill out an application on our website: There is then a background check done on the potentional adopter and if they pass the background check and home visits we set up a home visit! If the home visit passes, the adopter can then adopt the animal they're looking at after meeting them.

There is an adoption fee. This fee depends on the vetting that the animal has already needed. If the animal is too young and has not yet been spayed or neutered, you are required to sign a contract and agree to have them spayed or neutered.
Adoption fees range from $200 - $300
