Who We AreOUR MISSION
To prevent the unnecessary destruction of dogs, help stray pets find loving, responsible homes, and strengthen the family bond between people and pets.
Ruff Riders Rescue is a small, all-volunteer

orphaned pets, and to promoting pets as life long family members. Our work is
performed from our homes and at the Baldwin Park Shelter.

All our dogs experience a
home environment during their stay with Ruff Riders Rescue. They are
either fostered by a volunteer full-time or their days are split between
boarding and a volunteer's home. Every dog we rescue is given regular exercise, a healthy diet, medical attention when needed, socialization,
and a ton of love.
Adopting a Friend
The fact that you are considering adopting
from an animal rescue means you are a responsible and caring person and we
Many dogs we rescue are from Baldwin Park Shelter and were waiting for new homes
because they were obtained by someone with unrealistic expectations of the time,
effort, and money required to sustain a lifelong relationship with their pet.
In an effort to make good matches between people and animals and to place pets
in lifelong homes, Ruff Riders Rescue provides you with an adoption process that
involves an adoption application, reference checks, discussion about the
potential adoptive home, an adoption contract, and a visit to your home.
We require a $225.00 adoption fee which includes a microchip,
vaccinations and de-worming. We are a non-profit organization and this fee aids with the cost of veterinary care, food, pet supplies, and shelter and boarding fees. In most cases our dogs are already spayed or neutered however, if a dog is being placed unaltered due to age (too young) or a physical condition then we require the adopter to leave a $100 deposit which will be refunded upon presentation of a Certificate of Sterility for the dog.
