Adopting from Rude Ranch
Although the animals we rescue will have the best of care at the shelter, it is always our goal to find a special home for each pet. Therefore, if we deny an adoption application for a particular animal, please understand it is because we want the absolute best match of personality, temperament, and home environment for both the adoptive family and the pet.
