There seems to be a bit of a misunderstanding of what it is I am trying to accomplish so let me take this moment to clarify! The rrruffstart program is designed to help both people and the dog on how to come together and bond, and educate you on your new rescue. The rrruffstart program is designed to be started BEFORE you get your rescue, it is designed to educate you on the needs of owning a rescue or “a dog with baggage” it is also designed to help you choose the right dog for you and your families needs for example; if you like to run marathons the a bulldog is not the right choice, if you are a stay at home and kinda lazy then a Sheppard is not the right breed for you! This is where one way the rrruffstart program can help, I will help you choose the right dog, also I will explain the proper bonding techniques you need to truly help the rescued dog acclimate to his new home. I will also help you in training, not just obedient training but behavioral raining which is way more important for the bonding process! rrruffstart program want to start you and the dog off to a great start even before you choose your new family member!
If you have already chosen your new rescue and have found yourself in some hot water and feeling like you have bitten off more than you can chew, rrruffstart is here to help! We will help you, help your new dog. I will show you how to stop the “If you had seen where he came from!” syndrome! Feeling bad for your rescue due to his past will never allow you and your dog to go forward! It’s over! He is no longer being tormented, abused, mistreated, left out in the cold, so lets move forward and rehabilitate both of you so you can find success.
Rrruffstart is solely designed to educate the public. I want to teach the public that ANYONE can design a good-looking website so sell dogs on and get clip art of awards and medals to post on that site. Kijiji is also a big dog selling site and as there may be a few legitimate breeders on there I want you guys to know the difference and what to look for! A real good backyard breeding for profit breeder and some puppy mills look like legitimate kennels. Those guys will invite you in to a designated place on the property where they have designed to look “the part” and they are banking on YOU falling in love with their puppies that you lose your minds and forget to ask the important questions and you stop looking for signs because the “puppy is so damn cute” and as soon as they hear “do you wanna come home with me?” They gotcha! You have now been caught in the puppy trap of cuteness! What you missed was all the warning signs letting you know that they are shady, and it worked! He has gotten you to buy the puppy and lose your senses! That is again where the rrruffstart program can into play!
Let me educate you so you can spot these con artists! Trust me when I tell you, they are hard to spot and they are also very local. They make on average over $200,000.00 a year on profit breeding and other than the basic needs being met like food and shelter $0.00 is going towards those animals! This I can promise you, I have seen them with my own two eyes! They spend a lot of money on smoke and mirrors to deceive the general public and are very successful at it if you don’t know what questions to ask or things to look for!
I am not attacking any of the breeders who are following the guidelines and truly have the dogs best interest and welfare in mind and who stand behind their dogs! I am actually in your corner and in a round about way are on the same side! I am simply trying to stop the need to buy puppies from the “bad guys” if the need to purchase from them goes away, then the need to breed them goes away too! If we stop the puppy for profit demand then the health and welfare of these animals improves! It has too! It’s the supply and demand logic! Every time you adopt from a rescue, shelter, foster home you shut down the demand ONE DOG AT A TIME! That’s all we are trying to do with the rrruffstart program! We want to educate the public on all aspects of rescuing these dogs and help in every way possible so that the dog you rescue NEVER returns to the system!
We cannot do this on our own, This is where you come in! We need donations!! we need money, product, services, people,time, we need help in any and all ways! I am currently working with a few companies locally who are willing to donate services such as: local vets who will sign the rrruffstart pledge to offer veterinary care at a discounted rate for the dogs in the program to help offset the cost’s of keeping these dogs. I have a company that will offer dog walking services and babysitting at a discount to again help offset your cost’s. I recently became a dog food distributor so I can help you feed these dogs a very healthy diet without having to remortgage your houses! I can sell it to you at COST! I personally will be offering support by email and phone for free to help answer any questions or concerns you ay have that are non emergencies, I also ill be offering my training and boarding services at a discounted price to again offset the costs of these guys and giving the new owners ZERO reason to give up!
Rrruffstart is in the very beginning stages of the program and we have a lot to do before it is fully up and running! The more help and donations we receive the faster it will be up and running! The animals are in crisis and we humans put them there so now it’s up to we humans to do all we can! I am doing all I can to play my part in rehabilitating and re-homing some great animals are you willing to do your part?
If you look at the very top of this website you will see the rrruffstart tab where it gives you many options to donate! No amount is too small and every penny counts! Thank you in advance for your support!
