About Us
Ruff Dog 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, Dixie Bonds, Lisa Pelletier and Rosemary Rutland we rescue dogs from Georgia high kill shelters and place them into permanent, loving forever homes.

It is the goal of Ruff Dog 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, PLEASE donate today to help us pay down our vet bill. We are in a tight pinch for funds and we just cannot do it without you.
Thank you! Please help us by donating today (click the button below)!
