Thank you for visiting the Ruff Patch Rescue website! We are a non-profit organization focused on finding forever homes for pets in need. All of our rescues come from animal shelters or are directly surrender by their owners. We place each pet in a foster home where they will receive the attention and special care they deserve. We’re working hard to give every abandoned, homeless, abused, and neglected dogs and cats (and sometimes bunnies, goats, or lambs!) a second chance with a loving family. If you’re looking for a companion who will return your devotion and compassion tenfold, you’ve come to the right place!

Fill out an adoption application to learn more about a specific pet, submit a general inquiry, and get an early start on the paperwork before coming to one of our adoption events.
