Diamond in the Ruff Pet Rescue

About Us

Welcome! We are Diamond in the Ruff, a pet rescue operating out of Fargo, North Dakota. We are a 100% volunteer-run organization that depends on foster homes, volunteers, and generous community donations to continue saving the lives of animals.

We work to rescue and rehabilitate abandoned animals before permanently placing them in loving homes. We also aim to educate the public about proper animal care, prevention of breed discrimination, and the importance of spaying/neutering animals in order to combat the escalating overpopulation problem in our community and across the country. It is important to us that we have a lasting impact on the lives of animals as well as the people who interact with us.

We are a new organization working to create a foundation that can be used to save animals’ lives. Our rescue operates entirely with the help of volunteers and foster families. Donations of any size contribute to our cause by helping us provide our foster homes with supplies and our animals with the comforts and assistance they need after they’ve been admitted to our rescue.

Our org2021 Guidestar Gold Sealanization earned a 2021 Gold Seal of Transparency! Now, everyone can view our financial details and learn about the people at our organization. Check out our updated #NonprofitProfile on Candid.
