RUFF Rescue of Central Florida, Inc. is dedicated to saving the lives of homeless and abandoned dogs in Florida kill shelters; to provide them with proper shelter, food, veterinary care, and love; find them appropriate forever homes through adoption; maintain a no-kill policy; educate the public on the humane treatment of animals, and the importance of spaying and neutering companion animals to help reduce pet overpopulation.
The partners of RUFF Rescue of Central Florida, Inc. have been working and volunteering in the animal rescue field for over twelve years. We have collectively fostered and found homes for over 1,200 dogs, from motherless newborns to seniors.
While we enjoyed the work we did for other animal rescue organizations, we felt it was time to venture out on our own and put all our energy into saving as many dogs from kill shelters as possible, provide them with appropriate medical care, and find them the loving, forever homes they deserve. We want these dogs to have a voice, someone fighting to save their lives and give them a chance to be loved. We want to work towards one day living in a no-kill community, where an adoptable dog's life isn't ended simply because of space limitations.
We rescue dogs from kill facilities throughout the State of Florida, and do not turn away any dog because of age, breed, size, or medical condition. Unfortunately, due to the limited amount of foster homes we currently have, we are only able to save a handful of dogs at a time, focusing our energies on motherless puppies, nursing moms with pups, and small breed dogs. As our foster home base increases we will be able to save more lives.
