RUFF Animal Shelter Relocates to Graceville

Nov 05, 2012 01:45AM

Rescuing Unwanted Furry Friends (RUFF), has moved the animal shelter from its Fort Walton Beach location to 1003 Highway 173, in Graceville, Florida. RUFF still operates a the Ruff House Thrift Store, at 127 Miracle Strip Parkway, in Fort Walton Beach, from which proceeds are used for veterinary bills. They also accept vehicles (running or not), boats and recreational vehicles. Brooks notes that the shelter needs food, bleach, mops, laundry soap (prefer perfume-free), dog treats and financial assistance with the power bill.

“We were unable to afford the utilities at the FWB location and we adopted many of our dogs, so we have moved to a smaller location to save on utilities.” says Director Janice Brooks. “At the new location, the animals now have doggie doors and runs, so they can go outside or inside if they prefer.”

All the dogs up for adoption are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on shots, microchipped, heartworm-free and housebroken. The staff will make special trips if someone wishes to meet a dog for adoption.

To offer support, contact Brooks at 850-863-7833 or [email protected].
