About Us
Ruff Rescue is a foster-based, non-profit, all breed dog and cat rescue. Our foster homes are located throughout Atlanta, Georgia
Together, through the collaborated volunteer efforts of Lisa Johnson, Teresa Chiofalo, and Dixie Bonds, we rescue dogs from Georgia high kill shelters and place them into permanent, loving forever homes.

It is the goal of Ruff Rescue to reduce the pet population through spay and neuter and to encourage the public to adopt--not shop! Our rescue was founded on the principle that no animal should die unwanted or unloved.


Please help Ruff Rescue cover the expenses of heartworm treatment for four of our Ruff pups! Heartworm treatment is always such an unexpected expense. Please help us help them by donating today (click the button below)!

Ruff Pups of the Month!
Jasmine is a fun-loving, smart, and loving girl that is looking for a family to call her own! She is kid and dog friendly, she knows basic commands and is house and crate trained. Jasmine, like all of our Ruff pups and klitties, is spayed/neutered, up to date on all vaccines, and is microchipped. She has waited so long for a family of her own so she a special fee for a limited time.
This is a great opportunity--don't let it pass you by!
