Together WE can make a difference, one dog at a time!
We are a non-profit, all-breed dog rescue that operates in the Durham and Northumberland Regions of Ontario. As animal advocates, we work with many dogs from shelters, native reserves, and owner surrenders. Our sole purpose is to save lives, and help a good dog find the perfect FurEver home! We run a foster based rescue program, and also have a boarding facility (4 kennels) to house dogs in an emergency/crisis situation.
Our Adoptable Dogs
ALL Ruff Start dogs are fully vetted including spay/neuter, all shots (brevacto) preventative and microchipped for safety too.

He is good with other dogs with energy. Loves to be active and very playful.
