    • About

      We are a foster home-based Non Profit 501c3, no-kill dog and cat rescue based in central Minnesota.

      Check out available animals, volunteer and foster opportunities, and donate here: www.ruffstartrescue.org

      Mission Statement: 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.

      Vision Statement: We strive for a world where every companion animal has a safe and loving forever home.

      We rescue stray, neglected, abandoned, and surrendered dogs and cats as well as ferrets, guinea pigs, rabbits, and other critters. We work very hard to place them in new loving homes.
      We operate largely through volunteers and donations, relying on social media to stay connected. The more than 600 volunteers working with the rescue transport animals, serve as foster families, coordinate adoptions and much more. Without them and their countless hours of service, Ruff Start Rescue could not exist.

      We do not have a shelter. We believe a home environment is far more desirable than a shelter or kennel. We rely exclusively on volunteers to provide foster homes for rescued pets until they find their forever homes.
