About Ruff Patches

Location:

2010 West Ave K #424, LANCASTER, CA 93536, US

Mission Statement

To provide support and problem solving to Los Angeles pet owners in order to minimize the number of pets relinquished to shelters. To rescue abused, abandoned and unwanted animals and adopt them into loving permanent homes. To provide support to other animal rescue/ advocacy organizations in their efforts to save homeless animals

Description

Ruff Patches empowers Los Angeles area pet owners to keep their pets and help stem the flow of animals entering the City and County shelter systems and nonprofit rescue organizations.

Many issues can be remedied when pet owners have access to relevant information before obtaining a pet, access to additional education about pet care and to resources such as low cost spay/neuter, behaviorists, etc.

Ruff Patches connects pet owners considering relinquishment of their pet to the resources they need to address their individual situation, with the goal of keeping the pet in its original home or, if necessary, finding a new appropriate placement.
