Ruff Start Rescue is hosting our 3rd annual, 15 day, online auction starting on Sunday, June 1st 2014. It starts at 6am on the 1st (Sunday), and ends on the 15th (Sunday) at 11:59pm. All proceeds will benefit the many animals in need by funding vet costs, food and supplies for foster animals with Ruff Start Rescue.
We are a foster based nonprofit animal rescue based out of central, MN. We help dogs, cats, rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs, and other critters :)
Here are some stats to show you how fast our rescue is growing. The more $$ we can bring in, the more animals we can save. The money will go towards vet bills and on training for those we need it.
2010: 106 adoptions
2011: 181 adoptions
2012: 451 adoptions (spent $96,000 in vetting costs alone)
2013: 702 adoptions (spent $127,000 in vetting costs alone)
2014 - We continue to grow and would love to save over 1,000 animals this year but can't do it without your help!

Ruff Start Rescue

edit

Ruff Start Rescue (RSR) is a non-profit, no-kill animal rescue in central MN. 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 local impounds & high-kill shelters across the state of Minnesota as well as around the United States. We rely solely on our foster homes to provide a safe and loving place for these animals to be cared for until their forever home is found.

Beyond rescuing animals, we strive to provide educational resources for the public. RSR provides information on spay/neuter, pet health and well-being, training, a kid's education program and more.

Since March of 2010, RSR has saved over 1,800 dogs and cats (and a few rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, and a pig ;)) At any given time, our foster network has the capability to foster 200+ dogs and cats.
However, our network is quickly expanding to meet the needs of the unwanted pet population. For this, we rely solely on fundraisers, private donations, adoption fees, and grants to fund our rescue efforts.

Here are some stats to show you how fast our rescue is growing. The more $$ we can bring in, the more animals we can save. The money will go towards vet bills and on training for those we need it.
