They say diamonds are a girl's best friend, but really, who needs diamonds when you have a rare and precious ruby. Meet Ruby Red. This little gem is about 5 years old, and she's everyone's best friend. "Lil Red", as we often call her, loves people, especially kids. She is a certified jewel...well certified lap dog, either way she's a treasure :). There isn't a place she loves more than being in your lap, by your side or snuggled up under the covers with you on these cool fall nights.

Don't think because she likes to snuggle she's needy, Lil Red is definitely an independent girl. She gets along great with other dogs but doesn't care to be "bossed" around by them. This girl can think for herself and she thinks exploring the back yard with her furry friends, or chasing the occasionaly butterfly is a great way to spend the afternoon. Lil Red also thinks cats are pretty cool.

Lil Red will make someone the perfect little companion. She's well mannered, smart and extremely loving. She is also house trained and crate trained. If you would like to make Ruby Red part of your family, please apply online at

About Rural Animal Rescue Effort (RARE)

About Our Rescue Group...

Rural Animal Rescue Effort (RARE) is an organization that is dedicated to saving animals in rural areas, mainly in 'pounds' and shelters, both high-kill and no-kill. There tends to be a higher overpopulation rate in rural areas due to lack of animal ordinances and alteration to prevent unwanted litters. Many animals are 'dumped' on country roads left to parish or end up at the local pound or animal shelter if they have an empty kennel. Many of these animals have a limited number of days before they are euthanized. In addition to placing animals in foster and adoptive homes, networking with rescues to assist in placement and adoption of animals, RARE also performs fundraisers for spay/neuters and other vetting to prevent further overpopulation and promote quality of life for the animals we save.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption fees cover all vetting for the animals in our care, including vaccinations, Heart-worm test, Heart-worm treatment if needed, Feline Leukemia test, spay/neuter and may vary, depending on species.

Fosters and Adopters will be required to complete an application with personal and Veterinary references. A home visit is also required.
RESCUES, please contact us regarding pull information or pull fee, if any, depending on vetting already provided by RARE.
