$200,000 Goal

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. 

We have a life-changing goal this year—$ 200,000. 

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.

Will you consider giving generously today to help Ruff Start raise $200,000 to support the veterinary expenses for the more than 2,875 animals we’re projected to save this year?

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!
