***Essie is currently unavailable for adoption as she has some ongoing medical issues. Essie has been diagnosed with a type of skin follicle cancer and is in the process of getting into the oncologist. She may be available for adoption in the future pending what her treatment will look like, but she is accepting applications for a hospice foster. Right now, she is available for a Sponsorship to help cover her medical bills as they have already exceeded her $125 adoption fee***
This animal is part of our "Seniors for Seniors" program where we offer senior animals adopters an opportunity to adopt a pet at a discounted fee.
Hi there! I just joined my foster family and they are still learning a few things about me. Once they get to know me better they will fill out more information.
An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal. Once we receive your application, a placement coordinator will be in contact with you as soon as possible.
Please check out our website, www.ruffstartrescue.org for more details and additional pictures on any of our animals!
All Ruff Start dogs and cats are spayed/neutered, up to date on age-appropriate vaccines, microchipped, dewormed, and on monthly flea/tick and heartworm prevention (dogs) as well as heartworm tested (dogs).
Ruff Start Rescue is a foster-based rescue. Animals are located in homes throughout Minnesota. We do not have a facility where animals are kept.
