Sponsoring an Animal

Why sponsor?

Everyone at Ruff Start knows that not all people are in a position to adopt a pet.  But, that doesn't mean you can't still help!  By making a tax-deductible donation, you can sponsor one of the many RSR foster pets!  A lot of these dogs/cats have vetting expenses that outweigh the amount of their adoption fees, and you can help us offset that cost so we can continue to save more animals!  We are a 100% volunteer group, which means every dime you donate will go directly to saving these precious animals.


What Do You Get Out of Sponsoring?

Even though you're not adopting, you still get the joy of knowing you helped rescue the animals that you sponsor.  Because of generous people like you, Ruff Start Rescue continues to save animals that would otherwise be put to sleep, neglected, or beaten.  We're happy to send you any updates we receive on the animals you sponsor so you can see what your money helped do!  You will also receive a thank you card that includes a picture of the dog/cat you sponsored, and your name will be listed on the animal's profile stating that you are a sponsor (unless you'd like to remain anonymous).  


Ways to Sponsor

As a sponsor, you can committ to monthly donations that will help different rescue animals throughout the year, or you can make one time contributions.  Once you've decided you want to sponsor a pet, it's easy to do!  All you have to do is go to the webpage of the animal you want to sponsor, then click the link "Sponsor This Pet."  Once there, you will be able to choose the amount of your sponsorship.
