Chico

Chico is a super adorable 7 year old Chihuahua Mix around 9 lbs. He gets along with the dogs and cats in his foster home. He is friendly with all furry four legged's and all humans! He is pretty Perfect!

Liza

Liza is the sweetest pit bull mix you’ll ever meet. Two years old and 60 pounds, she loves people and is gentle and affectionate to everyone. She can spend hours lounging on her bed or the couch, yet is always up for a long walk, playtime or a trip in the car. She LOVES other dogs and would especially appreciate a home with an active playmate and a yard where they can run together. Being an only dog with visits to a dog park would be fine too. Her other wish would be for a human who likes cuddling as much as she does. She is very people oriented and would like to lay next to you with her head on your lap. Pet Rescue pulled her off the New York City shelter’s nightly euthanasia list because she received a perfect behavior evaluation. She has lived up to that evaluation and proven to be totally non-aggressive to people and animals. However, because she thinks it’s great fun to chase cats, she needs a feline-free home.

Chen

Chen is a yorkie poodle mix that is 2 years old and approximately 8 lbs. Chen recently spent time in a foster home and the foster mom said he is human selective. He is weary of many men and some woman. At the kennel he has some dogs that he walks with and even plays with but can be dog selective. There are times that he is anxious around strangers and can be reactive. No children should be in the home. Super smart with his training and he would need to stay on a training program to build his confidence with strangers. Chen needs a home with an experienced dog person will be considered to adopt Chen. he would not do well in the city. Chen seems very appropriate with cats.

Spring

Spring is a beautiful St. Bernard/Lab mix, about a year old. She is very sweet and friendly with other dogs. She loves going to the doggy park to play with her friends. This just in from her foster dad: "Spring is an exceptionally friendly, outgoing, affectionate young dog about one year old, weighing about 55 lbs. She is low key in demeanor, easy to have, bonds readily with children ( as my grand kids will attest) is fully socialized at the dog park and every where else. Spring is apartment adapted living on the 5th floor of an older mid rise building, housebreaking responsible, elevator familiar, and rides readily on the back seat of my car. She can be left for periods of time without a fuss. Spring is ready to become an awesome companion pet for a deserving family."

Good with children, she enjoys short walks and is very close to being housebroken. Hawaiian Tropic does not need a crate to sleep in, stays off furniture and absolutely loves to cuddle! She always likes to be around her people which makes her a great family dog that enjoys sticking with her herd :).

Tish

Tish is pure mush - she is super sweet and not a mean bone in her body! She is a beautiful hound mix, about 5 year old and 50 lbs.She loves human attention. When she came to her new foster home, she fit right in learning the routine immediately. When tired she goes in her crate to rest. She loves to play with toys that are squeaky and soft, bones are next in line. She would love to be with another dog that is up for a good chase. She loves walks and follows her nose wherever it leads her. A secure, fenced-in yard would be great so she can stretch her long legs and explore. She loves children and good with cats also.

In his foster home, he is independent, calm and curious. He is fun to train because he does a lovely sit and down. Unfortunately, Andy has a heart condition but does not require medication. As stated by his foster mom, he doesn’t seem to know he has a condition. He loves his walks and hanging out with his foster parents. He would be best in a home as the only dog and no cats.

Mele+Allie

Mele and Allie came from a home where the family could no longer keep them. These sisters are both Beagle mixes, about 25 lbs. each. They are sweet and friendly. They would love to find a home together if possible as they are very attached.

Skip

Skip is a very happy and energetic dog. He and some other fellow pet rescue residents are best buds. We are working on some of his excitable behavior so we recommend no children and someone who will follow through with his training. He especially loves long walks or hikes and would thrive with another dog as a companion. The best person for Skip would be a patient individual who could teach him that humans are all good and caring.

Ziggy

Ziggy is an gorgeous husky/collie mix, about 2 years old and 50 lbs. He was living outside on a chain when we rescued him - he is adjusting nicely to living indoors and manners training. He is a silly mischievous boy who just wants to be part of a family with a regular routine. His foster home has 3 other huskies and Ziggy especially loves to "husky play" with the youngest one (see video). He is very good-natured, housebroken and loves to sit on the couch to snuggle with you and watch TV. He gets all mushy when you gently massage his beautiful eyes and ears. We are looking for a home that has another young, playful active dog his size and a fully fenced-in (5 ft+) yard - he does chase cats, so a no-feline home would be best. He has a heart of gold and the lucky person who adopts him will have a wonderful companion for life.

Chandler

Chandler is an approximate 4 month old lab mix who doesn’t seem like he will be a big dog. He is very sweet and adores his humans. He also loves other dogs and cats - the cats have given him some good "schooling"! Chandler is submissive and gentle. He tends to be timid and should be with an experienced dog owner to help him get over it. Cuddles and playing with his sister and foster dogs are his favorite activity. He is very close to being potty trained and is crate trained. He is starting to get used to the leash. Chandler is a terrific puppy!

Chase

Chase is a super sweet lab/whippet mix, about 3 yrs old and 33 lbs. He loves going for romps in the dog park ... he is playful but not crazy. He is friendly with all - other dogs and people too, although he gets a little nervous when people approach him quickly. His foster mom has been doing some training to help build his confidence and he is responding very well - in fact, he loves having boundaries and a predictable routine. He is such a smart boy! At the end of the day, Chase just loves to cuddle and hang out with you. And he is totally housebroken too!

Admiral

Admiral is a gorgeous Tree Walker Coonhound approximately 3 years old. He is a bit underweight but gaining weight steadily. He's graceful and elegant and can be extremely shy in new situations or with new people. Admiral is adorable but will run or hide when he is anxious. He has floppy ears and a sweet disposition once he gets to know you. Admiral loves and must be homed with other dogs. He would do best in a home with a dog and a patient person that can help him become more confident.

Will

Will is a sweet boy about 9 months old and 25lbs. He is a little shy and would likely do well with another four legged friend, he does warm up once he gets to know you. He will be a wonderful family pet. Is learning his manners and how to walk on a leash with his pack of friends. He seems to be housebroken, or at least well on his way! Once he gets to know you, he will gladly snuggle up to you for some petting and give gentle kisses. Since he is on the shy side, we are recommending he go to a home with older children and as mentioned, another dog.

Bradley

Bradley is Pekingese mix, approximately 11 years old and about 15 lbs. He is a cutie but does not like to be cuddled. He is blind with cataracts in both eyes which make his eyes silver in color. He has no teeth so he can only eat soft dog food. He is fully housetrained and will go out in our fully fenced backyard. Bradley will not walk on a leash. He can climb up some steps but will not go down. He is scared by loud noises and a lot of movement around him. He has a strong personality and will bark loudly when he doesn't want to do something. Since he is blind, it will take him a while to learn how to navigate his surroundings. He loves hanging out in a quiet home and is happy being an only dog.

Artie is a beautiful Hound mix, about 3 years old and 45 lbs. He is very calm, sweet and friendly.

Ocho

Ocho is a Schnauzer/Scottie mix, about 2 years old and 18 lbs. He is a spunky fellow who is waiting for his forever home. He has a light shedding coat and needs to work on his housetraining (though, now that he is neutered, we expect him to come along quickly). A handsome boy with great coloring - beautiful light highlights throughout his coat. Ocho is fine with cats and can be dog selective but has made a nice friend at the kennel facility. Ocho would do well in a home with older children and a fenced in yard. He would not do well in the city.

Matt

Matt is a handsome boy, he looks like a Carolina Dog mix but we're not sure. He is about 1 year old and 41lbs. One of his eyes is part blue. He is very sweet and on the shy side so he should go to a home with another dog. Matt is enjoying life in his new foster home with his new foster siblings and running around the yard with his friends.

Foster a Dog!

Thinking of adopting but not sure you are ready for the commitment? Want to save a life and be rewarded in wagging tails and kisses? Try fostering and become a part of Westchester Magazine's Best Animal Rescue Group 2008.

Pet Rescue does not have a shelter and relies entirely on the generosity of foster homes to care for our dogs. The number of foster homes we have dictates the number of dogs we can save. There are always more waiting for rescue.

The average foster lasts just a couple of weeks and all dogs are screened for health and temperament. We provide basic supplies, veterinary care, and guidance. You provide love, training and a home. It is the care and attention given by foster families which allow Pet Rescue to expertly match our dogs with prospective families.

If you live in Westchester or Southern Fairfield counties and would be willing to care for a foster dog, please submit an application. Fostering is a fun and immensely rewarding experience! Click here to see how much love you get from being a foster parent!

Amelia

Amelia is a 1 - 2 year old Doxie mix who unfortunately only has use of three of her four legs due to an old injury. But, that doesn't stop her at all and she gets around great! Amelia would prefer to be an only dog because she can get a little territorial with some dogs, she loves to play, but she also is a snuggler! Amelia is housebroken and she comes when you call her she's a sweetheart.

Luna

My name is Luna and I hope my journey fines me at last, a forever home. I am a very special girl that wants to be loved & I will love you right back. I get all excited when my foster Mom comes home greeting her with affection and lots of kisses. I bond with my care giver very quickly. I am totally house trained & can be crated. I am not a chewer. I really need to go with a female-only household as men make me uneasy and I bark at them. Presently I live with 5 cats & 3 other dogs. I sit on my foster Mom's lap & watch T.V. with her. I am not pushy but love to play and run. If you call me I will come and sit right in front of you. I weigh about 50 lbs and I’m about 2 years old. I am a sweet, gentle, teddy bear of a girl.

Rover

Rover is a gorgeous Lab mix, about 2-3 years old. He came to us with an injury (probably hit by a car) and had to have surgery on his hip. He has recovered nicely and it is a joy to see him run around the yard now. He is super sweet and takes treats so gently. He would do best as an only dog.

Tilly

If we had to describe Tilly in three words it would be: stunning, athletic, endearing. Her looks are striking. She is a beautiful blond and white dog with eyes that look attentively into yours. She is so attractive; people must stop to say “hello”. She enjoys activity – running with one of our sporty dog volunteers throughout Harrison. She can leap up to a high perch in a yard with little effort. She is very muscular with a lean body that makes her look like a proficient agility dog. Tilly would do best in a home with someone who is dog savvy, can give her a predictable routine and continue her training program, which she responds well to. Tilly is a wonderful communicator, very affectionate and would make a wonderful companion!
