Our Mission

Scrufflands is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization in Fort Worth, Texas. At Scrufflands, our mission is to bring rescue, support, and sanctuary to animals in need. We rescue and find permanent homes for abandoned, stray, and surrendered dogs and cats in order to minimize the neglect of animals and the needless euthanizing within shelters. There are way too many animals at risk of neglect or unnecessary euthanization due to not having a place to go. We are here to save as many of those animals as we can!

Adoption Policy

We carefully screen all adoption applicants to ensure the right match for our dogs - this includes a one-on-one phone call, careful review of your application, and may even include a home visit if necessary.

We adopt only to homes where the pet will live indoors as a family member. We do not allow pets to be left outdoors while their guardians are not home.

All Scrufflands dogs are fixed prior to the adoption being finalized. The only exception is the foster to adopt program. Any other pets in the same household must be spayed or neutered and current on vaccinations. No exceptions.

Not every match is a perfect one. During your meet and greet, our team and the dog's foster family will help determine if a match is the right fit. We reserve the right to refuse any adoption.

Some of our animals are older or have medical conditions. Special requirements of the adoptive family may have to be met.

Scrufflands works hard to ensure our adopters get the pet they are interested in, but some pets receive multiple applications. We can't guarantee you'll match with the pet you wanted, even once you're an approved adopter.

Once our team screens and approves your application, it is valid for up to one year.

We do not use Facebook or text to complete adoptions.

Adopting is a commitment for the full duration of a pet's life. We reserve the right to a home visit after adoption if we learn that one of our adopted dogs is lacking care.
