About Us


We go BIG so they go home.


Our mission is to rescue animals in need and help create a world where the kind and rewarding experience of adoption is the standard. Ruff House Rescue is a professional 501(c)(3) non profit organization that strives to both save as many lives as possible and build awareness to the plight of shelter animals in need, cultivating the natural connection between man and his best friend. We do this through tireless passion, commitment, and advocacy.

About Us

Ruff House Rescue is a certified 501(c)(3) non profit rescue organization in Nassau County, Long Island NY. We are a foster-based network of animal lovers who seek to save as many lives as possible, as fast as we can. As a largely volunteer-based organization, we depend on the generosity of our Ruff House family to do this life changing work.

Going BIG means that our fosters and volunteers always show up in a big way and are incredibly hands-on, passionate, and dedicated, whether they are volunteering remotely, at our kennel, or at our adoption events.
