SHELTER DRIVE: Collect Supplies for Animal Rescue!

Ruff House Rescue

One of RHR'S Dogs for Adoption

We often need SUPPLIES for our Rescue and this is where you come in!! RHR volunteers do all the cleaning and maintenance of the Rescue facility -- as well as caring for and working with the animals. This opportunity would be great for Universities (clubs, fraternities, sororities), Schools, Teams, Churches, Work Campaigns, and Scouts.

1 animal is euthanized in the U.S. every 16 seconds, 4 million annually (Humane Society of US).

"If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito." The Dalai Lama

Our mission is to rescue homeless pets that suffer from abuse, neglect, and indifference. Our goal is to create awareness of the epidemic of homeless pets and educate on the importance of spaying and neutering, ID tagging, and training these pets. Through our rescue efforts we are both saving lives and cultivating the natural connection between man and his best friend.
