Adoption FAQs

Adoption FAQ’s

Please complete an application on our website! www.ruffhouserescue.org We try to review all applications within 24-48 hours.
We will have your application on file for a month. If you are interested in adopting more than a month later please reapply!
Adoption fees range from $350-$500 depending on a dog's age, size, and breed. While some of our rescues only require basic medical others, other require more extensive vetting. We rely solely on donations, adoption fees, and fundraisers to enable us to continue rescuing homeless pets.
Of course! However, we do require all adopters to travel to us (and bring your dog(s) for a meet and greet). If traveling by plane, your new pet must be able to travel in the cabin with you.
We do weekly adoption events where you are able to meet adoptable pets. We have many dogs and puppies in foster homes and once your application is reviewed, we will arrange for you to meet either at an adoption event or at a foster home.
For general information, please email info@ruffhouserescue.org If you have already applied, please email apply@ruffhouserescue.org For medical questions, email Melissa at Mel@ruffhouserescue.org For donation receipts, email Sara at sararuffhouse@gmail.com
