Summary: Foster Coordinators (FC) are responsible for approving and setting up new foster and foster to adopt homes throughout MN. They will process incoming foster applications in a timely manner and connect them with the applicable Foster Manager or Foster to Adopt Coordinator once training is complete. This will include daily emails and follow up phone calls.

The FC will ensure that the new foster has completed all steps of the training and acknowledged all forms needed. The FC will also make sure the new foster has all the information on fostering and knows who to go to with questions. The FC works closely with the other Foster Coordinators to approve the foster applications and work together as a team.

Mission Statement

Ruff Start Rescue is dedicated to saving animals whose lives are at risk. We also educate the community about the importance of animal rescue and responsibility. www.facebook.com/ruffstart


Who We Are & How We Do It

We are a foster based animal rescue based out of Central MN. We are a No-Kill dog and cat rescue organization. We rescue stray, neglected, abandoned, and surrendered dogs and cats as well as ferrets, guinea pigs and rabbits. We all work very hard to place them in new loving homes. We have a facility in Princeton for staff and supplies, but we operate throughout all of central MN. In fact, we have most of our fosters in the twin cities and surrounding areas.

This group could not survive without all of our wonderful volunteers who spend countless hours devoting time to save lives. Most volunteers work full time jobs, have children, their own animals, etc and have a very busy schedule. So if your phone calls or emails are not answered by a live person right away, it’s probably because we are at work and will call you as soon as we can.
