Join Ruff Start Rescue for the biggest online fundraising event of the year!

Give to the Max Day (GTMD) is a 24-hour give-a-thon initiative known as Minnesota’s primary giving holiday. GTMD is held with the sole purpose of fundraising for nonprofit organizations and schools that are making a difference in our home state. This year, GTMD is on Thursday, November 16!

Ruff Start has set a goal of raising $175,000 to support our lifesaving mission!

Our veterinary expenses are projected to reach $800,000 for the approximately 2,875 animals we will care for in 2022!

If you’d like to contribute to our cause, early giving has started – you don’t have to wait until November 16th to make your gift! All donations made from today to GTMD will count toward our goal, as well as any matches we currently have available.

Your gift helps connect animals in need with loving households. Each individual we help, both animal and human, sees immediate benefit from the work we do and the resources we provide them.

Donations can be made on our fundraising website.

If you aren’t able to give, you can still support Ruff Start by sharing our mission with your friends and family. Please share this event and our social media posts with your followers.

THANK YOU for helping us save over 24,000 lives and counting since 2010. We appreciate your continued support!
