Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Ruff House Rescue aims to rescue and rehome an additional 1,000 homeless pets annually.

Ruff House Rescue is working with a consultant to restructure our organization and host quarterly recruitment events. With additional volunteers, we can save more lives.

Working with specific skill-sets for each volunteer, we will maximize efficiency and productivity of the volunteers we work with.

We are hosting our first recruitment event June 6, 2018, and we have already signed up new members to our newly restructured teams!
