Diamonds in the Ruff Animal Rescue

Diamonds in the Ruff is a foster and volunteer-based 501c3 rescue organization focused mainly
in Niagara and Erie counties. DITR was formed in 2011 by a group of like-minded
individuals with one goal in mind – to help save the voiceless. What started as a
small group of dedicated men and women has grown since then. We have a large
core of volunteers from many different backgrounds and situations, each one
bringing something amazing to our table. We wouldn’t be where we are today
without our dedicated volunteers, selfless fosters, and the many amazing
adopters we have met through the years.
Since 2014 we have been completely foster-based. This
means our animals get the experience of living in a home setting and feeling love
and attention they may have never received. Since we never seem to have
enough foster homes, some area boarding kennels have stepped up and generously allow us the use of some of their kennels. DITR also conducts many
fundraisers throughout the year, and we bring animals to adoption events at area
pet stores and businesses. There are many ways to help support Diamonds in the
Ruff Animal rescue. You can foster, donate, volunteer, transport or share our social media posts!
