Who are we?
Diamond in the Ruff Pet Rescue is an animal rescue operating out of Fargo, ND. We are a 100% volunteer-run organization that depends on foster homes and generous community donations to continue saving the lives of animals.
What do we do?
We rescue, rehabilitate and permanently places abandoned animals. We also aim to educate the public on proper animal care, preventing breed discrimination and the importance of spaying/neutering in battling the escalating overpopulation problem. It is important to us that we have a lasting impact on the lives of the animals and people who interact with us.
Why should you donate?
We are a new organization that is working to create a foundation that can be used to save animals’ lives. Your donation could be just what we need to provide supplies to a new foster home, to help meet an animal’s special behavioral needs, or prove comfort to an animal saved from a pound.
Supply donations are distributed to foster homes and provide the necessities for our rescue animals. Monetary donations are used to pay for medical needs (sterilizations, vaccinations, surgery), to pay pull fees from pounds, and to buy food for all of these hungry animals! Your money will never be used to pay a salary or for any activity that can’t be traced back to saving an animal’s life.
