Ruffin Inn Pet Lodge actively works with, and supports United Doberman Rescue and Canine Castaways of Minnesota, UDR, a 501C3, not for profit animal rescue, founded in 2005, that is focused on the Doberman breed, but supports all homeless animals and rescues. If you need to surrender a Doberman, or need help with your dog, feel free to contact us as we may be able to help. Check out our rescue website for more available dogs, some you may see playing at Ruffin’ Inn!
Fall in love!
Some of our adoptable pups come for daycare at Ruffin Inn, some come for temporary boarding while the fosters are away. See the rescue website for available adoptable dogs such as these below:
Little Luna is all of 1 years old. Not a Doberman but a Llasho Apso x Pug cross, she weighs all of 24 pounds. Luna did not get socialized well during her imprint age (4 weeks to 16weeks for puppies!) and was surrendered due to her fear of new things. Coming to the Inn was a big eye opener for this girl, and while it was initially scary, she now enjoys coming and hanging out with all her new friends, humans and canine alike! She would like to find a home that loves little dogs, is patient with showing her new things, and has lakefront property as this girl LOVES to swim in the lake!!! Great car rider, crates nicely and is house trained. Fully vetted and spayed. She is ready to make you a happy dog owner!
Viggo is a 8 year old, purebred, red Doberman. Surrendered through no fault of his own, his owner was diagnosed with terminal breast cancer. Viggo would love to find a home where he can be your one and only canine companion. He would be great for a senior human. Viggo was trained by his previous owner to carry things in his backpack when they went out. Very well behaved and obedient, Viggo would make someone a great friend!
Sully is a 3 year old purebred Beagle. Happy-go-lucky, fun, playful, willing to please describes this guy!
Volunteer Help always needed!!!
Volunteer OR Foster-We are always looking for FOSTER HOMES to help the dogs that need temporary places to stay until they get adopted. UDR will provide food, some supplies, crates and pay for all needed vet care for your foster dog. You supply the love and structure until a permanent home is found through our adoption process. Or if you can;t foster consider donating some time by doing computer data entry, calling applicants or doing home visits to get adopters approved!
Donate- You can still help without being actively involved by donating money to pay for vet bills, new or used dog and cat items you no longer use, crates, bedding, blankets, even unused medications can be used and are so appreciated by animals that have nothing! Feel free to drop off items at Ruffin’ Inn. We can provide a tax receipt, just ask!
Adopt– UDR always has homeless dogs available for adoption. Other then fostering, the kindest thing you can do for these homeless animals is give them a forever home with you.
