Delilah and Ruby both came to us as fosters that we decided to adopt. As a first time dog owner I had a LOT of questions, and this rescue was happy to answer every single on of them. Even after the adoptions were finalized, Leah and Alicia have been there to answer training questions and provide encouragement and guidance, which helps the dogs live their best life. They truly care about each and every one of their animals, and take the time to know the pups and potential adopters so the transition is as smooth as possible. (Even great fits can have rocky starts and bumpy roads!)

Leah and Alicia work their butts off for all of their dogs. As a foster and an adoptor you can't go wrong with this rescue. All the families I have met, are loving and quiet excited to get their new addition. The dogs are fully vetted, spayed and/or neutered prior to any adoption, which completely helps when bringing a new addition to your family.

Ruff Redemption rescue has been a pleasure to work with. They always put the needs of the animals FIRST. Many of these animals have been through so much. The kindness and compassion that this group, shows not only it’s animals, but the families who are looking to adopt. They do everything necessary to make sure the each family & household are a good fit. Ruff Redemption gives these neglected animals, a safe Loving place to call home, while they recover from Emotional & Physical abuse and many times Medical NEGLECT.
Their screening process is thorough & can take some time, but I see the value in every step! These animals DESERVE that level of scrutiny to ensure that are going to their Furever home!!

I have two beautiful pups whom I adopted from Ruff Redemption! They are the best things that have ever happened to me, and they were so well taken care of by this rescue before I received them. They were loved by their foster family “almost” as much as they are loved by me and my family. Ruff redemption takes such good care of their pups and makes sure that they go to a very fitting and well prepared home. Thank you, Ruff Redemption!

I was a foster for 2 dogs that were abandoned around Christmas. Ruff Redemption was able to find an amazing home for the fur babies. They were so easy to work with and made sure they went to a new family as a pair!

Ruff Redemption is an amazing rescue that goes above and beyond to help dogs find a loving home. They strive to find the perfect fit for each individual dogs personality. It is evident that they truly care about the well being of each animal they rescue.

Ruff Redemption Rescue is the best!! I still recommend them to others. We got our sweet pup from them in December 2019. They were so professional and truly showed they were seeking a forever adoption and weren’t trying to adopt to the first available applicants. They answered all of my questions and gave knowledgeable and helpful recommendations for vets and pet sitting services for family vacations and continue to answer questions I have as a pet owner 11 months later. Very caring organization. The foster family loved our pup, too.

Ruff Redemption discriminates against people without families. We have had high energy breeds in our home and have almost 9 acres on a river. We were unable to conceive and have a family, so we were told we couldn’t adopt a particular dog that was a boxer. We had a boxer along with two other large breed dogs. We were planning to adopt a second dog. We were told since we didn’t have children or another dog we couldn’t adopt. We said we’d happily take two dogs as we were planning on taking two, just wanted the boxer first. They claim we needed to already have one. Still not good enough, so again they are discriminating against us for not having a family. Don’t bother to complete the application with this shelter, and definitely donate your money elsewhere. It is so sad to see that a dog rescue has stooped to this level. Tell everyone you know. So sad.

Hi Kathy. As we have already told you many times, we place our dogs in homes that are the best fit for them based on personality and energy level. In our bio of this dog, it specifically stated she needed another dog or children. You had neither so we are not sure why you applied. We are positive there are many female boxers in the south that would be fine as an only dog. However, you believe that what you want takes precedence over what is best for a dog thar has already had a rocky start in life. Thanks for the review! It shows we take great pride in our organization and want only what is best for our dogs. Hope all is going well with you. Take care.

It’s funny how this rescue doesn’t like when family are always out of the house due to working long hours. Mind you someone in my house is always home 24/7 and we have rescued before. Which we always give a higher donation. we are looking to add to the family and got denied because they don’t want the dogs outside they want them indoors all day. This rescue can not make up their minds on what type of family they are looking for. Unfortunately can’t give it a zero star rating.
