My story

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

Banditt is a big headed, muscular guy who self identifies as a lap dog. He’s thinking maybe a poodle. He's looking for his best friend. He loves to be a couch potato and watch TV with his people. He’s 2 years old, so he’s done with all of that puppy foolishness. He rides well in the car. He’s loved all of the people he’s met, even the little ones. He’s great with kids. He knows how to sit and is learning "look at me". He’s just a bundle of love! He would do best in a home with a fenced in yard. He walks well on a leash, but gets overstimulated when passing other dogs. We are working very hard on that. He is crate trained and housebroken.

Banditt weighs 66 lbs and is from a local shelter. If you are interested in getting to know this animal better, please fill out an adoption application. An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal and is not a binding contract.

To learn more about Ruff Start’s adoption process and the care our foster animals receive, please visit our How to Adopt page.

If you'd like to donate towards this pet's care, you can donate to our Animal Care Fund. Our Animal Care Fund supports the medical and veterinary needs for all Ruff Start Rescue animals. You'll be able to enter this pet's name on the second page of the donation form.

Interview

Your chosen animal’s foster family will review your application and reach out to you to answer questions and/or schedule a meet and greet.

3.

Meet the Pet

This meeting could take place at an adoption event, a neutral location, the foster’s home, or your home.

4.

Sign Adoption Contract

An Applications team member will send the electronic adoption contract to you to be signed. They will also request adoption fee payment.

5.

Take the Pet Home

You will receive an adoption confirmation email when all applicable documentation is signed and completed.

Additional adoption info

If both parties (the foster family and adoptive family) decide to move forward with an adoption after a meet and greet, a visit of your home may be conducted virtually or in-person by either the foster family or one of our designated volunteers. This visit is set up to ensure the safety of our foster animals. At the same time, a veterinary check will be done (if applicable) to ensure your current pets are up-to-date on vaccines, spayed/neutered, and have been tested for any transmittable illnesses, such as FeLV/FIV.

Ruff Start Rescue is a foster-based rescue, meaning no animals are available at the Princeton, MN office for public viewing or adoption. All animals in our care reside in foster homes with few special exceptions for our adoption center animals, who are housed at our partnering facilities temporarily before adoption. To meet a Ruff Starter you may be interested in adopting, please submit an adoption application on our website.

More about this rescue

Ruff Start Rescue is a foster-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit companion animal rescue that primarily serves communities throughout the state of Minnesota, as well as states in the south with severe pet overpopulation. We rescue stray, neglected, abandoned, and surrendered dogs and cats as well as ferrets, guinea pigs, rabbits, and other critters. Most of our work is accomplished by a complex network of volunteers, fosters, and supporters, all of whom come together to save thousands of animals each year. Since our inception, we’ve firmly believed that a home is usually a far more desirable environment than a shelter or a kennel for most companion animals in need of a forever family. As a result, we rely nearly exclusively on volunteers to provide foster homes for rescued pets until they find their adoptive homes. Please note: this means no animals are available at our facility for public viewing. Each pet in our care is provided with routine vaccinations, spay/neuter procedures, microchipped, given internal and external parasite preventatives, and tested for common bloodborne pathogens such as heartworm and feline leukemia. Advanced veterinary care is provided to any animal that requires such services before adoption. If you are interested in fostering, adopting, or volunteering, please fill out an applicable application at our website: www.ruffstartrescue.org.
