"Diamonds in a Ruff Rescue" is a foster-based, all-breed, no-kill animal rescue based in Philadelphia, PA that offers rescue and sanctuary to animals in need. We do not have a physical shelter you can visit - all of our animals are housed in foster homes. We are made up of volunteers and foster homes that care for and socialize our animals. Most of our animals have been rescued from "death row" from high-kill shelters and given a second chance at life. Our goal is to offer each and every one of these animals a safe, permanent and loving home. We also offer people the ability to surrender their dogs to us instead of surrendering their pet to a high-kill shelter if they can no longer take care of them. Please help us to give each of these animals the life they deserve.
Our dogs are in foster homes throughout Philadelphia, Delaware and Montgomery Counties in Pennsylvania. We adopt to people in any state as long as you're application is approved and you pick up the dog. We do not travel. Check out our website: www.diamondsintheruffdogrescue.com
You will be asked to fill out an adoption application giving us information about yourself, your family and your experience with pets. You will need to provide a vet reference and multiple personal references. Our goal is to find our animals the best possible home. Our adoption fee is $375 for dogs under 1 year old and $250 for dogs 1 year and older. The adoption fee includes a wellness exam, all age appropriate vaccines, spay/neuter surgery, heartworm testing when age appropriate, heartworm treatment if necessary, worming, microchip, and phone/email support from our dog trainer and discounted rates on any training scheduled with our dog
