Help RSR Kick Start the Giving Season

Give to the Max Day is right around the corner; on Thursday, November 16!

Give to the Max Day (GTMD) is Minnesota’s largest fundraising giving holiday – supporting Minnesota nonprofits and schools, including Ruff Start Rescue. In fact, this is our largest fundraiser of the year, and instead of just celebrating it on one day, we want to rally the entire month of November to see what impact we can make for our mission.

These local companies have chosen to support Ruff Start Rescue leading up to this incredible day by hosting celebrations all over Minnesota and Wisconsin. So, whether you are looking to meet adoptables at a local brewery, or support animals in need by attending a workout class, the options are endless!

This year, we are celebrating the giant milestone of rescuing 24,000 animals and continuing to add more resources for the community to help people and their pets – and there’s no slowing down! Our mission to help people and pets is due to your lifesaving work and support. So, from the entire Ruff Start Rescue team, THANK YOU for being part of these efforts!
