Ruff House Retreat

A State of The Art Adoption Center & Safe Place For Rescue Dogs Right Here In New Hampshire


Welcome to the Ruff House Barn & Adoption Center

Here at Peace and Paws we have created a safe space for rescue dogs right here in New England. In April of 2014, with help from thousands of donors, we completed construction on The Ruff House Retreat Adoption Center. We built this facility for the neediest and most vulnerable dogs we rescue. The Ruff House Retreat Adoption Center was originally a barn that we recently finished renovating into a beautiful adoption center. The Ruff House Retreat provides care and shelter for dogs that require special attention, rehabilitation, and/or time to grow and develop before being adopted into their forever homes. With this new space we are able to rescue many more dogs each year – changing the lives of these dogs and the families who adopt them.

We are incredibly grateful to every member of the Peace and Paws family for their care and support and all the donors and volunteers who helped us make this dream a reality.
