Welcome.....

Diamonds In The Ruff, Inc. is a group of animal lovers, dedicated to assistance, care and compassion for animals.  Our mission is simply to bring rescue, rehabilitation, re-homing and improvement to the lives of our best friends.

Currently millions of pets are euthanized every year due to over population.  In the Eastern Kentucky region, our goal is to lower that number drastically by  rescue, and education of spay and neuter.   We operate solely by fundraisers,  donations and in part from the adoption fees charged for the animals. These donations and adoption fees help to cover some of the costs associated with caring for the dogs and cats.

The Rescue must also pay shelter fees which range from $25.00 to $85.00. Every animal coming through the Rescue is checked by a veterinarian. This includes a vet visit, rabies shot, heartworm test and any tests or treatments the veterinarian deems necessary. All dogs are also spayed or neutered before adoption. In many instances, the dogs have been so neglected or mistreated that they require additional veterinary care, as in the case of dogs with heartworms.

Take a look at our adoptable pet list.  We have something for everyone!
