Connecting People & Pets.

Your gift today helps connect animals in need with caring individuals and families all over Minnesota and beyond. The animals we save see an immediate benefit from being in a safe and caring environment. The people we connect with those animals also see an immediate impact from the benefits of having a loving pet. 

To kick off this amazing day of giving and to support our many animals in the rescue, we have raised an impressive $40,000! BUT, beginning Thursday, November 17th, we will have a DOUBLE MATCH of $40,000 on top of what we have already raised. Your donation today, could help us exceed our $100,000 goal to move us toward $125,000!

This means your donation will go TWICE as far! See the remaining match listed below.

Ruff Start Rescue not only saves animals, but we do our best to keep animals in homes with people as well. Whether that's providing some additional food, kitty litter, or resources regarding animal welfare, Ruff Start can help!

Your gift today will go to help support our animal care program, which provides both routine and advanced veterinary services to dogs, cats, and critters.

- We have saved over 20,000 animals since 2010

- We will rescue over 3,400 animals in 2022

Will you consider giving generously today to help us rescue as many animals as possible in 2023?

We are so grateful to our amazing community of supporters, volunteers, fosters, donors, and business partners for helping us save so many lives, educate thousands of people about animal welfare and create resources for communities and animals in need. Thank you for your support!
