What People Say
A great group of people
Ruin Creek is great with their dogs. All the volunteers do a tremendous job with the animals. These dogs are socialized with others. Any questions you may have will be answered. A great group of people. I have been rescuing from RCAPS for over 2 years and will continue to do so. I would definitely recommend Ruin Creek Animal Protection Society.
This group is absolutely amazing. They work tirelessly to get as many animals out as they can, to safety. They are honest, reliable & always doing above what is expected. They are a pleasure to work should to shoulder with. They are far above 5 stars in my opinion!! Can’t say enough praise about Ruin Creek.

Animals get good homes
I’ve never been there but I got my wonderful dog Pritzie from them. They rescued her and she got her ticket to freedom from them and sent her up to another wonderful animal rescue in NY. They try to help all these animals get good homes and work tirelessly to do so.
