Who gets your donation?:
One of the many rescue dogs and/or cats in our care.
Dog/puppy & cat/kitten food, general animal supplies (toys, leashes, food bowls, litter, kennels), cash and gift cards.
We are entirely foster based, with no shelter facilities, because we believe that companion animals are happier, healthier, and more successfully socialized in a home and family environment. We rescue animals from impounds & high-kill shelters across the state of Minnesota as well as around the United States. RSR accepts all dogs and cats, regardless of breed, age, training, coloring and other arbitrary euthanasia standards imposed at some shelters.
Beyond rescuing animals, we strive to provide educational resources for the public. RSR provides information on spay/neuter, pet health and well being, training, and more. We also provide education on the value of spaying/ neutering, and strive to educate the younger generation on the importance of animal rescue and responsible pet ownership.
Being a non-profit, we depend solely on donations to do what we do, whether it be supplies, food, or a monetary donation towards vet costs. All donations are tax-deductible and MUCH appreciated!
Ruff Start Rescue is dedicated to helping every animal in need.
