ARRUFF is a 501C3 Non-Profit all breed dog rescue located in Benton, AR.  

Our goal is to save the lives of as many animals as we can that are facing euthanasia in shelters,

those that are abused, & those that are simply thrown away on the side of the road.

We spay and neuter all of our rescues, we treat every medical condition they may have.

We make sure they receive all needed vaccinations, ensuring that they are 100% healthy,

so that we can then find each of them the loving forever homes that they so deserve :)

Email is best, as it is checked whether in or out of the office via cell phone.  

Please leave a voice mail if there is no answer  - they are checked several times per day. 


We hope to help people in every situation, but please realize that we foster animals from our homes.

We have families, children, and neighbors that we try to show the utmost respect to.

We can always give you suggestions for most problems that you are facing with your pets.


At times, there is simply no room at our homes for us to take in more animals.    

We are unable to take in 'packs of dogs' that may be a nuisance in your neighborhood.

We are not a shelter, and we do not receive funding from any county, city, state, or federal entity.


We rely on adoption donations, and general donations from caring people,

to ensure that the animals we rescue are given the best care possible

and are as close to 100% healthy when they go to their awesome forever homes.​
