What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Rude Ranch Animal Rescue, Inc. is a public non-profit corporation established in 1997 and incorporation in 2001. Rude Ranch Animal Rescue was founded in response to the growing numbers of healthy adoptable dogs and cats that were abandoned, homeless and euthanized every year. Many healthy kittens and puppies in many cities were born and immediately euthanized because they were homeless. Our goal is to provide a refuge to abandoned, abused and homeless animals; and to prevent the euthanasia of healthy animals because of overpopulation.

Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

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

Our Goals are:
To provide a safe haven and rehabilitation to feral and neglected animals rescued from abusive situations

To put an end to needless euthanasia because of pet overpopulation

To find permanent loving homes for adoptable animals placed in our care

Rude Ranch Animal Rescue has several strategies and programs to accomplish our goals.

We advocate and promote an aggressive approach to spay/neuter for all animals.
This is accomplished through the Spay Spa & Neuter Nook, a high quality/high volume spay/neuter clinic that is centrally located in Maryland. The clinic is open to anyone that needs to spay or neuter an animal and performs over 7,000 surgeries per year. The clinic has funding available to subsidize spay/neuter for low income families, senior citizens, etc.

Spay/neuter for feral/stray/community cats.
We developed our SAVECats program (Spay And Vaccinate Every Cat) to help people caring for homeless cats living behind restaurants, on farms, and in neighborhoods spay/neuter these cats. Statistically, many of the cats and kittens euthanized at local animal controls and shelters are the off spring of these cats. This program ensures the cats are spayed/neutered so they can not reproduce and vaccinated.

A large, cage free sanctuary for injured, abused and neglected animals.
The sanctuary provides a secure, safe environment for cats and dogs that have suffered injuries and or abuse from humans. The animals are given food, medical care and physical therapy for as long as needed.

Over the years, Rude Ranch has accumulated significant resources to use to accomplish our goals:

We built/maintain a regional High Volume High Quality Low Cost Spay/Neuter clinic (the Spay Spa & Neuter Nook) The clinic currently performs over 7000 spay/neuter surgeries per year. It has the capability to expand to 20,000 surgeries per year (with enough funding for staff).

Our brick and mortar sanctuary has been photographed and toured as a model for housing and caring for animals.

Our community cat program is considered to be one of the most comprehensive in the area, providing both animal and data management capabilities.

Rude Ranch's internal controls, data management, and internal security are all rated in the top percentages of organizations in Maryland.

Rude Ranch is proud of our progress:
Since opening the Spay Spa & Neuter Nook in October 2012, we are starting to see a reduction in the numbers of litters of kittens turned into local shelters and animal control agencies. Animal Control Agencies in our local county and surrounding counties reported a decrease of 4 – 6% in 2018. Likewise several animal shelters reported a drop in calls for help. In 2018 we continued to see a noticeable drop in local euthanasia rates of healthy adoptable puppies and kittens. (currently as high as 90% in some areas).

Six months after starting our SAVECats program in July, 2018, the euthanasia rate of healthy feral or community cats dropped 41% in Anne Arundel County, MD.

We feel any reduction in either the euthanasia rates or number of animals surrendered will be a measure of our success.
