At Ruff Start Rescue, we strive to educate the public on animal rescue and welfare. Education is so strongly rooted in our organization that “educate” has been in our mission statement since day one! To support this effort, we have created a number of education and outreach programs.

We also understand that pet owners can face a variety of challenges, like pet behavior issues, difficulty finding pet-friendly housing, and trouble paying for large veterinary bills. As a service to the community, we have compiled a list of resources and services from some wonderful animal resource hubs to help answer pet owners’ commonly asked questions.
