Sometimes there is no rhyme or reason as to why some animals get adopted quicker than others. Our We’re Still Waiting… pets have been awaiting adoption longer others. They are happy, friendly pets that deserve an extra nudge from us to be noticed! This program is our way to help them say “take a look at me, I’m your new best friend!”.  We have a special adoption package program for this program where the animal's adoptions fee is lowered. The dog adoption fee is $125, and there's a special adoption fee of $99 for cats.

These adorable doggos are looking for their forever home. They just need to find the right family that can care for their vetting needs. These dogs are so full of unconditional love and affection, and just need a loving family that can give them the love and care they need.

There are lots of cool things about being single: you never have to think about what someone else wants to have for dinner or have them interrupt your favorite TV show with one less desirable.  If you are a dog, being single means no other dogs taking up your special human snuggling time, no one tries to eat your food or steal your treats or plop in your comfy bed. 

If you are a cat, being single means no other cat makes any tracks (or anything else) in your litter box, no one drools in your kibble, uses your scratching post, plops onto your windowsill or snuggles your human.

Sometimes, we meet animals who are better off as single pets. Just like people, they don’t really want to hang out in groups. They’d rather just fly solo when it comes to other animals as far as they are concerned. They love people and they may love other species, but their own kind? Meh.

We know there’s a home out there for single dogs and cats. Maybe it is someone just who wants one pet, or is a first-time pet owner who has always wanted to adopt and is ready to take the plunge.

Ruff Start has more cats in rescue now than ever before.  During the spring and summer months especially, there are many cats with kittens or pregnant mommas, all that need rescue. All too often the mom cat sticks around while one by one her babies are adopted. The Mom 'n Me program encourages adopters to take mom to their forever home with one of her kittens. We have a special adoption package for this program that will get mom and baby ready for their new home with you.
