Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: ARRUFF is a 501C3 Non-Profit all breed dog rescue in Benton, AR. Our goal is to save the lives of as many animals as we can that are facing euthanasia in shelters, animals that are being abused, or those that are simply thrown away on the side of the road, which is sadly very common in Arkansas. We treat any medical conditions these sweet ones need help for, and get them 100% healthy so that they can find wonderful adopters. We have each of these rescued ones spayed and neutered. Once these rescued ones have had all necessary shots, vaccinations, everything that may be needed, they are then ready for their new homes. We post their pictures and their stories on hundreds of websites in the attempt to find them the most awesome homes possible.

Results: ARRUFF incorporated in 2004, so we have been saving doggy lives for 12 years. We have saved hundreds, even thousands of lives, and try so hard to educate people that dumping their animals is NOT the answer.

Target demographics: Puppies & adult dogs that are homeless, in shelters facing death, abandoned by uncaring people, facing cruelty by their owners, strays - any dog that we can help find a better life, we will do our best to make sure this happens !

Direct beneficiaries per year: 478 puppies and dogs find wonderful forever homes

Geographic areas served: Central Arkansas & across the US and into Canada

Karen from aruff is wonderful. I adopted a male lab from her almost a year ago, and we still talk to this day and she asks how kole and everyone is. A year later! Kole is the most perfect addition to our family! Such a BIG personality. All my neighbors always comment on how he's such a happy dog. I believe coming from an awesome rescue helped shape him to the happy boy is he.
