RUFF TALES RESCUE
CHANGING LIVES FOUR PAWS AT A TIME
Ruff Tales Rescue is a foster-based dog rescue organization. We're dedicated to saving the lives of abandoned dogs and redirecting them to stable, loving environments that serve as their forever home or the bridge to their forever home. Our rescue is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is entirely volunteer-run.
A PATH NORTHWARD FOR AT-RISK DOGS
Ruff Tales rescues dogs from shelters in southern states, where they are at risk for euthanasia due to significant overpopulation. Once rescued from the shelters, our dogs are fostered locally before moving to their northern fosters when they are ready for adoption.
Since our founding in 2014, we have rescued over 2,400 dogs.
Ruff Tales Rescue is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is 100% volunteer-run. We are not a shelter and do not have a physical facility. Instead, we rely on devoted foster families who open their hearts and homes to our dogs on a temporary basis.
