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. We provide refuge to dogs, cats, and small critters that may otherwise have an uncertain future. Since our inception in 2010, we have cared for over 7,600 animals. We also have educated over 4,000 children through our our animal welfare education program which helps to promote the next generation of animal advocates. Finally, we also offer no-cost spay/neuter services for community-owned and feral/barn cats. Over the last 4 years we have assisted in altering over 800 cats and counting.

Shelter Wish List

Our biggest need is of course monetary, but we also need contributions of pet food (wet and dry), litter, martingale collars/halters, and KMR powder.
