Car donation to Ruff Patches

There are angels among us who are keeping unwanted and abused animals from becoming victims of euthanasia. A car donation to Ruff Patches supports animal ruff5rescue and encourages the transition of animal shelters so that, ultimately, Los Angeles will become a no-kill city. Every pet deserves a loving home and by educating the public, families who adopt rescue animals will be better prepared for dog or cat ownership, which means fewer end up in shelters.
