“Not only do I have complete confidence that I'm leaving Pancake in loving and capable hands, but I'm also seeing her settle more and starting to learn how to play and not just say hi and be social. Thanks Jackie and everyone for giving Pancake so much love! It takes a village for an older rescue. We both appreciate it!"  ​

CJ T, Pancake and Pickles owner



"The crew at Ruff Life are family, they regularly save me when something comes up and I need my little dude to be out of the way for a minute. If you have a pup and you want the best for them, you should swing by the Ruff Life sooner than later"

Ethan, Bash's Owner
