RUFF Rescue Tucson

"A voice for those who cannot speak!"


    Pet Care



RUFF Rescue Tucson is a local rescue organization founded on the idea of keeping companion animals out of the overcrowded shelter systems.  We hope to provide an opportunity for pets that become homeless to live out their lives in the arms of family that will love and nurture them .

RUFF Rescue Tucson's mission is to be an advocate for homeless pets in Tucson, Pima County, Cochise County and Pinal County.  While we started out a number of years ago working only to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome puppymill dogs, our mission now also encompasses caring for and rehoming pets left homeless by life's many circumstances, whether it be the death of a guardian or a family losing their home in our declining economy.
