About Ruff House Rescue

Ruff House Rescue

A registered 501c3 small animal rescue group

It is not without dedication and sacrifice that we have saved so many lives.

(Diane, director and co-founder of Ruff House Rescue with Grayson aka Jake rescued from high kill shelter.)

Ruff House rescues homeless pets from kill shelters here in New York and across the country. Animal rescue has become a necessity because euthanasia via lethal injection or gas chamber is the primary solution shelters have in place to solving the homeless pet problem.

Ruff House Rescue pulls hundreds of animals every year from these shelters and finds these pets the loving homes they deserve.  Ruff House is comprised of dedicated volunteers who give their time and their love to help save so many. Without Rescues like Ruff House countless more would perish in the shelter system.  Once having left the shelter each pet is vaccinated, altered and micro-chipped. They are loved and cared for until they find a home to call their own. This could take a day or a year. No adoptable animal is euthanized.


Ruff House pulls the weight of rescue to impressive heights managing to save literally thousands of dogs since its inception. We do this soley with donations from people like you. No donation is too small and every dollar is life saving for a homeless pet in need.

Ruff House educates young people, adopters and the general public on the importance of spaying and neutering their pets to halt over population and encourage the use of trainers to make adoption permanent.

We understand rescuing instead of buying a cat or dog from a breeder or pet store is rewarding and has become a growing trend that we believe should and needs to become the standard.  It simply saves lives.

Please go to our DONATE tab and help us save lives! Your tax deductable donation can be made in any denomination. Donations can be mailed to Ruff House Rescue P.O. Box 365 Oceanside NY 11572. You can also pay via our donations tab here on our website.

“Continued breeding of dogs and cats while at the same time euthanizing millions to control the excess is morally reprehensible”!
