Who We Are

It's a RUFF Life Rescue is a 501c3 all breed rescue in Northeastern Ohio. We take in dogs from high kill shelters and save them from being put to sleep. We also take in dogs whose owners no longer want them or who have been abandoned. We rescue pets from neglect situations. We are a small non-profit group, and work strictly on a volunteer basis.
**We do NOT have a shelter. If you have been approved for adoption an appointment will be made for you to meet the pet you are interested in. Please be on time for your appointment or call the foster home if your late or need to cancel the appointment.
**Yes, we do adopt out of state, however we do not "ship" or transport any of our puppies. We will consider on an individual case basis shipping adult pets.
**After meeting you and you have had an opportunity to interact with the pet we reserve the right to deny your pending adoption. Our goal is to place our pets in the best possible home for them and there are times when you may feel this pet is the perfect fit for you, but we don't feel that's the case. Vice versa you are never obligated to adopt a pet you are any less than thrilled with.
** If you have filled out an application and not heard back you are most welcome to email and ask about the status of your application. We often have dozens(or more) applications on a particular pet and don't have time to email or call everyone to tell them if they have not been approved.
