Show your support so Ruff Love Rescue can remain open!

Ruff Love Rescue has been deemed a "commercial kennel" according to the Davidson County zoning ordinance. Currently there is no provision for a private animal shelter. If this stands, we may have to close!

Our attorney has submitted text amendments to the county zoning ordinance for approval by the Planning Board and the County Commissioners. The text amendments offer alternative solutions: to either make an exception for animal shelters as the zoning ordinance already does for personal, show, hunting and guard dogs, or, to allow Ruff Love to qualify for protection under new developmental standards for animal shelters.

If Ruff Love is forced to close, we will no longer be able to rescue "the ones no one else will help" -- the sick, injured, starved and neglected dogs that have no other chance. We will not be able to pull dogs from the Davidson County shelter and those dogs will die.


First, please sign our petition. Then, if possible, join us at the Planning Board and Commissioners meetings in Lexington NC. Information about both is available on the Ruff Love Rescue Facebook page
