Ruff House Rescue is an organization that rescues homeless pets from kill shelters here, and across the country. They also work with the police to assist with strays.

Ruff House Rescue pulls hundreds of animals every year from these shelters and finds these pets the loving homes they deserve. Without rescues like Ruff House, countless more would perish in often ruthless shelter systems. Once having left a shelter, each pet is vaccinated, altered and microchipped. They are loved and cared for until they find a home to call their own. Ruff House pulls the weight of rescue to impressive levels, managing to save dogs from around the country and finding them the homes they deserve. They save these dogs with the help of the community and people who donate. Anything you donate is never too small, even just a dollar or two or even just a few cents, and it can help Ruff House continue to save these dogs and give them the home they deserve.

Ruff House educates kids, adopters and the public on the importance of adopting. Volunteer work is also very important in rescuing these dogs and finding them homes. I volunteer with this dog rescue. Ruff House is comprised of dedicated volunteers who give their time and their love to help save so many. I try to spread the word as much as I can about volunteering at dog rescues and the rescue itself, and you should too.

They are located: 122 S. Long Beach Rd., Rockville Centre. Look them up online: ruffhouserescue.com
