It's A Ruff Life Rescue's mission is to rescue and save the lives of innocent dogs who find themselves on death row through no fault of their own and/or provide a safe haven for stray, abandoned, or abused/neglected dogs. Whenever possible we will assist families who, because of various circumstances, are unable to continue caring for their dogs (owner surrenders) so they are not dumped into the shelter system. Our goal is to do exactly what our slogan says..."turn ruff beginnings into happy endings". And as Rescuers, we strive to not only save lives, but to improve the lives of each & every animal who we take into our rescue. But our mission goes beyond just rescue. As Animal Advocates, we also work toward educating the general public about the importance of spaying/neutering, responsible pet ownership, positive behavior modification training, proper nutrition, advocating to ban BSL , and for inhumane gas chambers to be abolished.
