About Us




Adopting A Friend

When you adopt from us our adoption donation includes the following: 
  • spay or neuter
  • micro chip
  • current vaccines
  • rabies
Adoption Donation- $200-275
Please keep in mind that a spay or neuter for a dog you purchase from a store will cost over 200 dollars alone that doesn't include the puppy shots, rabies, or the value of a microchip. We do not make money off of your donation as it goes to care for the animals, provide for their vetting, and buy food, vaccinations, and monthly preventives.

We require an application, meet and greet, and a home visit.  We do not do same day adoptions.
PLEASE COMPLETE AN APPLICATION FOR ADOPTION THROUGH THIS LINK AND ATTACH TO AN EMAIL TO US WITH THE DOGS NAME IN THE SUBJECT LINE. We will review your application and put you in touch with the foster parents for a meet and greet. Please understand that we are all volunteers and will be in touch as soon as we can. We appreciate your patience! 

Who We Are

Ruffed up Rescue is based in the Charlotte area. We are not a shelter or a facility. All our animals are placed in foster homes around charlotte and surrounding areas. They are socialized in these homes and given a short term mom and dad. While pups are in foster they are possibly housed with other dogs, cats, kids, and both genders. Depending on the age of the animal our fosters work on house and crate training. 

Our rescue is run completly by volunteers and we all work other full time jobs. We usually respond to email within 24 hours. Please be patient with us, as your email is important to us. We as all rescues should, require a home visit be done with the family who is adopting. This is a rescue bylaw. Since we are volunteer run we do local area home visits only. Thanks for your interest!!!
