Our Mission

How You Can Help! With the huge numbers of unwanted dogs and cats in the South, the animals depend on all of us to save them. You can make a difference in RDR's mission in many ways. We are always looking to add to our network of compassionate foster families. We accept fosters living in the Atlanta metro and north Georgia areas. Please visit our website and fill out a Foster Application if you’re interested and we’ll be in touch!


We also need volunteers in a number of capacities, including administrative support staff, marketing and advertising, accounting, transport, helping at adoption events, walking/running dogs, and even "liking" and sharing our Ruff Dog Rescue GA Facebook page. If you are interested in becoming a RDR volunteer, please use the Contact Us page on our website.


Donations of funds and supplies are desperately needed and greatly appreciated. The Ruff Crew and pups rely heavily on compassionate people and organ
