Areas Ruff Start Rescue Serves

Ruff Start Rescue is a rescue group located in central MN that is strictly foster based.
Ruff Start Rescue takes in a wide variety of dogs and cats (all breeds). These animals come from rehoming situations, out of high kill shelters that are over-crowded, impounds, and strays. If you are interested in fostering, please fill out an application at our website: www.ruffstartrescue.org.

About Ruff Start Rescue

Mission Statement
Ruff Start Rescue is dedicated to saving the lives of at-risk animals. We also collaborate, communicate, and educate about the importance of animal rescue and welfare.

Vision Statement
We strive for a world where every companion animal has a safe and loving forever home.

Who We Are & How We Do It
We are a foster home-based Non-Profit 501c3, No-Kill dog and cat rescue based in Central Minnesota. We rescue stray, neglected, abandoned, and surrendered dogs and cats as well as ferrets, guinea pigs, rabbits, and other critters. We work very hard to place them in new loving homes.

We operate largely through volunteers and donations, relying on social media to stay connected. The more than 600 volunteers working with the rescue transport animals, serve as foster families, coordinate adoptions and much more. Without them and their countless hours of service, Ruff Start Rescue could not exist.


Foster-based by Choice
We do not have a shelter. We believe a home environment is far more desirable than a shelter or kennel. We rely exclusively on volunteers to provide foster homes for rescued pets until they find their forever homes.


We Can't Take Every Animal
Because we don’t have a shelter, we can only take a new animal when we have a vacant foster home for the pet to live in while they await their forever home. Sadly, we are not able to assist every animal that crosses our path. There are just too many dogs and cats out there that need help. We promise to do our very best to help find every pet his or her forever home.
