About Ruff House Rescue

Ruff House Rescue is a certified 501(c)(3) non profit rescue organization in Nassau County, Long Island NY. We are a foster-based network of animal lovers who seek to save as many lives as possible, as fast as we can. As a largely volunteer-based organization, we depend on the generosity of our Ruff House family to do this life changing work.

Going BIG means that our fosters and volunteers always show up in a big way and are incredibly hands-on, passionate, and dedicated, whether they are volunteering remotely, at our kennel, or at our adoption events.

Come Meet Ruff House Rescue's Pets

Ruff House Rescue "Goes Big" so more pets have a chance to go home. This means we are rescuing in areas that we can make the biggest lifesaving impact. The Rio Grande Valley of Texas and the city of Houston, While we continue to help our local dogs and families in NY wanting to surrender their pets we are compelled to help the animals most in need from the highest kill rate shelters in the country and the highest statistic for strays. Hundreds and thousands of highly adoptable puppies and dogs are killed daily. Therefore the majority of our pets come from these areas. This means the cost of rescue is higher due to the high costs of vetting, boarding, and transport. Please note our adoption fees vary and are the most reliable source of revenue enabling us to continue our rescue efforts. Your adoption fees directly contribute to the rescue of these animals.

Please see our website for information and an application to adopt or foster or volunteer for RHR.

We ask that adopters submit applications in advance to help facilitate the adoption process. Please note while you may not be sure what pet you are interested in if any your application will help us find you the perfect match.
