AdoptWe have lots of dogs that are looking for forever homes, and we regularly take in new dogs who are in need of our help. We'll do everything we can to help you find your perfect match among the many different dogs that are in our care.
FosterIf you're not ready to make a full commitment, but want to help homless dogs, you can become a foster parent. Fostering is an extrememly rewarding experience that will also save the life of a dog that might not otherwise be saved.
DonateAs a non-profit, fund raising is one of Ruff Love's biggest challenges. Without your help, Ruff Love Rescue would not be able to support our many programs. Even a little bit helps.
PetMeds graciously donates to Ruff Love Rescue.
Who we are...
Ruff Love Rescue (RLR) is a non-profit, 501(c)(3), no-kill dog rescue and foster care organization dedicated to the care of abused, neglected and abandoned dogs.
For over 15 years we have worked tirelessly to find homes for countless dogs and to continue our work we need your support. All of our volunteers, including RLR founder and president, Sue Rogers, have full time jobs. We save dogs in our spare time and all of our dogs live in private foster homes - we have no facility. RLR is dependent entirely on community donations and fundraisers.
Hard work by caring people is what makes Ruff Love Rescue so amazing!
Please take a few moments to peruse our website, visit our Facebook page, and lend your support. Every donation is greatly appreciated and 100% of all donations goes directly to the care of the dogs!

- Ruff Love Rescue The goodman family gave Hudson a great home. Thank you Debbie & Jeff for being amazing foster parents.0 Likes • Comments • 0 SharesRuff Love Rescue A young male dog was found last Monday wandering the busy street of East Wendover Avenue in Greensboro. He was running around in traffic alone, with a broken, bulky, nasty, knotted, stinking rope on his neck. We've checked the usual lost/stolen dog sites but it doesn't appear anyone is looking for him. He is malnourished so his rescuer got him home, bathed and he's been in her garage since. He's a very sweet lil fella so we’re trying to find him a home or a rescue. The kind woman who saved him is a foster mom herself for pits and her house is full. She can offer him a little time, food, shelter & she is taking him to the vet early this week for checkup/shots/neuter/etc.. She has named him Harper & he looks to be a lab mix. She says he has all his teeth so he's at least 6 months but he still has lots of puppy behavior so she doesn’t think he is that old. Please contact Dena at email@example.com if you know who he is, or if you are interested in adopting Harper0 Likes • Comments • 53 SharesTammy Gordon Jessi is doing very well. She enjoys being a couch potato but also had fun playing with a toy this morning.0 Likes • Comments • 0 SharesRuff Love Rescue ~~SPECIAL NEEDS SUNDAY~~ Today's featured pet is ~*CURTIS~* Curtis is an adorable senior chihuahua/terrier mix who is looking for a loving forever home. His estimated date of brith is 01/01/2003 and he weighs 13 lbs. He came to us in November 2012 after being found outside a local business. He was showing obvious signs of neglect - he was too skinny, he was limping and he had a collar imprint on his neck from where he had been tethered outside. He was later found to be heartworm positive. This little guy has been through a lot! Curtis is a great snuggler and would love to sit in your lap all day and then cuddle up with you in the bed at night! He can entertain himself with toys and is quite the little comedian. Curtis gets along well with other dogs and is curious but not aggressive with cats. If you ask him, though, he'd love to be the only dog so that he can have all the attention! He is also kid-friendly, but his might prefer older kids who would be easy and gentle with him. He is blind in one eye but is still protective of his people and barks when someone is at the door. Since he was neglected and likely went without food for a period of time, he shows slight (non-violent) food aggression and scrounges for food outside. Curtis has completed treatment for his heartworms and is now on monthly preventive. He is neutered, up-to-date on all his vaccinations and is microchipped. His adoption fee has been half sponsored by a donor and is now $75. If you have room in your heart (and your lap!) for this great little guy, please visit our website and complete an adoption application or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org ruffloverescue.com
