My husband and I started out saving stray animals. We would make all attempts in finding their owners and if we were unsuccessful we would vet these fur babies and find them homes. We decided to become official and obtained our 501 (c) 3 status in 2014 and have been up and running since! We ourselves have a zoo including many dogs and cats of all ages. Animal rescue is our passion and we only find homes for our adoptable animals with people who share that same passion. Check out our Ruts Rescue Facebook page and website to find out more about us!

Our Adoption Process...
The first step in the adoption process is to complete an adoption application found on our website www.rutsrescue.com!
After your application has been submitted, we will conduct reference checks and contact you to schedule a home visit. A signed adoption contract is required before or at the time of the home visit and can also be found on our website.
A prospective adopter must be within a reasonable proximity to the Indianapolis, IN so that we are able to conduct a home visit.
Adoption Fees: Puppies under 6 months - $325 Dogs less than 8 years old - $175. Dogs 8 years and older - $100
Cats/Kittens - $65 or $100 for two to the same home!
