About Us

Animals Are Our Mission


 Richmond Ruff House dog rescue is a 501(c)(3) all volunteer, non profit organization located in Richmond, VA. We operate solely on private donations, adoption fees, and fundraising events.  All contributions go directly to providing care for our rescued animals to include food, shelter, and veterinary expenses. Please consider making  a tax deductible donation.   

Our History


Founded in 2015,  RRH is dedicated to rescuing homeless dogs from animal control and public shelters where they are at high risk of euthanasia due to overcrowding and overpopulation, dogs given up by their owners because of difficult circumstances, and those in danger of abuse or neglect by providing them with temporary shelter for the purpose of finding permanent suitable new homes
