Rubicon Dog's 1% Pledge

An important part of the Rubicon Dog™ mission is to support and fund dog rescue organizations that save dogs from shelters and euthanasia, including our co-founder Christina Johnson's non-profit, Ruff Day Rescue. We have committed to donating 1% of our revenue to dog rescue organizations and rescue transport operations, so that we can make an impact on transporting more dogs out of last call situations and into more loving homes.

About Pledge 1%

Ruff Day Rescue

Every Dog Deserves A Second Chance

Ruff Day Rescue is a California-based 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to saving large-breed dogs in high-kill shelters in Northern California and beyond through rescue, foster, and adoption. We are 100% funded through adoption fees and donations. We believe that every dog deserves a chance at a forever home, and we aim to make a difference in the lives of these deserving animals, one dog at a time!


We save dogs from high-kill shelters throughout California and beyond. Many of our dogs come from the East Bay Area of Northern California, where very adoptable dogs are given just days in overcrowded shelters before being euthanized. We bring them to safety and place them in a loving foster home environment until we can better assess their needs and then find them the perfect fur-ever home!


Every animal that comes into our rescue will receive veterinary care including spay/neuter, rabies, DAPPV, bordetella, heart worm testing, microchipping, and grooming prior to adoption. In addition, we evaluate behavioral temperament and compatibility to find the best match for each animal in our care. We respect that each dog has different needs and tailor our approach to set every animal up for success.


We rely on support from our community to continue to help these animals in need. Think adopt, don’t shop! If you are in a position to adopt or foster an animal, opening your home to a rescue dog is so rewarding and not as difficult as you may think. And finally, if you’re not in a position to foster or adopt, consider volunteering or donating – our nonprofit organization is entirely funded by adoption fees and private donations.

1% of all of our revenue will go to dog rescue organizations and rescue transport operations, helping to save dogs from high-kill shelters and find them homes with loving owners. By supporting Rubicon Dog™, you'll be directly contributing to helping animals in need!
