Ruff House Rescue

One of RHR'S Dogs for Adoption

You can help bring awareness and support for Ruff House Rescue. Won’t you put your Blue Jeans or PJs on to help raise awareness to homeless and abused animals and raise funds in honor of man's (woman's too) best friend? Can be done at your school |university, employer, social club, sporting event, or organization.

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

This is can be a one day or a week event in which everyone is encouraged to wear denim jeans (or sweat pants, pajamas, flip flops, ...) for a purpose -- to raise awareness of animal issues and educate yourself and others about Ruff House Rescue's mission. You can take great pride in doing your part to help RHR!

Major Responsibilities:

Bring acknowledgement to Ruff House Rescue’s mission by bringing this to your school’s, employer’s or organization’s attention via the Jean For A Cause day (see below for more details).

May be responsible to collect donations for your organization.

Length of term:

There is no minimum amount of time required, only what you are able to volunteer.

Can start immediately.


Ability to communicate Ruff House Rescue's mission.


Employees/students get permission to wear blue jeans, sweats or pajamas for the day for a $1-$10 donation to a cause. You can even have people donate items instead of money. If you are doing items we have a wish list on Amazon (let us know we can email you that list).

Some employers even have Equitable matches where they will match the amount contributed by employees on each "Jeans for a Cause" day --- Your company's Human Resources Department would be able to let you know more.

Checklist Ideas:

  1. Put up/make posters or send around pamphlets.
  2. Will you be having other fundraising activities (such as selling baked items)? You can organize a team of volunteers to help you.
  3. Send out an e-mail and use social media channels to let people know you will be holding a Jeans For a Cause day and encourage them to get involved.
  4. Encourage everyone to wear appropriate attire for your function --- example: Pajama pants and loose sweatpants only (no pajama tops), tops can be casual shirts /tops and must have sleeves (no tank-tops). T-shirts and heavier shirts (such as sweatshirts) are okay. No nightgowns, nightshirts, lingerie and robes.

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.
