The purpose of Ruff Life Dog Rescue of Illowa
is to reduce the number of dogs living on the streets or in shelters by placing them in loving foster homes and providing quality veterinary care until they are permanently adopted.

The mission of Ruff Life Dog Rescue of Illowa

is to provide the highest quality of care to the animals we welcome into rescue.  We do this by providing:

  • Loving, responsible foster homes that have been fully vetted to ensure the safety and happiness of the animals and humans living in the home

  • Necessary vet care with local veterinary partners and specialists

  • A responsible adoption process to ensure safe loving furever homes

  • A lifelong commitment to always be there for an animal after he/she is accepted into rescue.

  • Transparent operating procedures
