Jessie is a sweet, gentle girl. She is great with dogs, cats and kids. She is easy on a leash and loves her long walks. Jessie has been lovingly cared for since the day she was rescued as a pup. Jessie is now looking for a new home because her very loving mom passed away this summer. She was a dedicated Pet Rescue volunteer who devoted all of her time to finding homes for the many dogs and cats looking for forever homes. We miss her mom very much and want to find Jessie a warm and caring home for her. At 13 years old she is healthy and full of energy.

Prada is such a cute and sweet petite beagle. She is just beginning to blossom in her foster home. She gets along with all other dogs and loves to play with them in the yard. She shares her toys and treats willingly. Prada walks well on a leash. She is not a "barky" girl but does let us know when there is some one at the door. She sleeps all night on her own bed and seems to be housebroken. Prada would love a gentle family who will take the time to help her come out of her shell and become the great dog she was meant to be. Due to her shy nature, we are not recommending she go to a home with small children, she will need a securely fenced yard and another calm dog would be ideal.

Gina is an adorable pup, about 9 weeks old. Sweet, playful and too cute! Gemma is her mom but she sure doesn't look like her. Gina is a soft ball of fur. She is loving her foster home and the yard she gets to run around in! She is often chasing after the other dogs in the foster home and trying to steal tennis balls!

C-uddly, L-oving, A-gile, R-eady for family, E-ager to please

This acronym describes me, CLARE. I’m a 1 year old female hound mix, weighing about 40 lbs. I love adults, children, dogs, and cats. I’m house broken. I love the security of my crate when the family is away. I sleep in my own bed on the floor of my family’s room. I am shy when I meet new people and in new situations. I’m looking for a family with another dog to be my friend and a backyard where we can run and play. I don’t like to walk on a leash but I am learning to tolerate it. I’m an easy dog to have around.


Jack is a wonderful, loving companion. Always anxious to please, he is house trained and knows basic commands. He would be happiest as the only pet in the house. Jack gets along with other dogs and we don't know about cats. He is a jagdterrier and has a very strong hunting instinct. He needs to run : so a fenced in dog park would be ideal or a large fenced back yard.. ( Running besides you on a bike will not work) Jack is not a city dog and would find the noise/traffic deafening and upsetting. Because of his strong personality, Jack would do best in a childless home or with children over 12. He is not a retriever and does not like to swim. Jack likes nothing better than snuggling on your lap and having his belly rubbed. He is a quirky 29 lb boy with lots of love to give. He is waiting patiently for the right people to adopt him.

Blaine is a gorgeous 1 year old male Husky Mix. He loves to chew on his bone and play in the yard with his toys. He is eager to please and loves all humans he comes in contact with. He gets along with other dogs in his foster home and has lots of energy to run and play. He is a bit strong, so we recommend he go with older children.

Snoopy is a 2 yr old Chihuahua mix. His foster mom said he is a very easy, well-behaved dog. He needs a few minutes to warm up to new people and sometimes barks while he is getting settled, but once he knows you he loves to be held and has no problem being toted around! He follows his foster mom around the house. He is housebroken and he sleeps peacefully through the night in his crate and is just looking for his forever person. He enjoys his trips in the car with his foster mommy and accompanies her to work most days. He gets along with other small dogs and LOVES to play with his squeaky toys! Due to his size he should not go to a home with young children.

Kensy is a gorgeous Beagle mix, about 2 years old and weighs about 25 lbs. She is housebroken (and crate trained). Kensy is a bit timid, but once she warms up to you, she is a big coach potato, loves to run and play. She's very sweet and loves to cuddle up with her foster mom every chance she gets. Kensy is friendly with others dogs and loves to play with lots of toys. She is very active and needs a home with a fenced in yard - and another dog to play with would be great. She also rides well in the car.

Wylie is an adorable little pup. He is around 12 lbs and 1 year old. This is one happy boy that will show you his happiness all the time. He is very smart and great with other dogs too. He loves to play with his toys and can keep himself busy for playing all alone or with you. He is good with other dogs too. He will run around and then jump in your lap and sleep like a rock. He can still be a little mouthy at times since he is a young boy.


Morgan is a delightful guy- friendly and happy to be with people of all ages, dogs and cats. He was rescued as a pup by a wonderful Pet Rescue volunteer 9 years ago. Sadly, she passed away this summer and now Morgan is in need of another family to love him. He looks and acts like a pup. He loves long walks, playing in the yard and hanging out with his buddies. Morgan was very well cared for his whole life by a woman who devoted hers to helping all animals in need.

Jan is an adorable 1-2 year old female Hound mix around 40 lbs - she is a very sweet girl and loves everyone she meets. Her tail does not stop wagging! She walks well on a leash, pulls a little, but getting better every day. She loves to play with the other dogs in her foster home. She has a good amount of energy and would benefit from lots of exercise. She loves to go for car rides and she sleeps through the night in her crate without a peep! She is still working on her housebreaking, but that has gotten better too - she is eager to please.


Prudence is a beautiful Lab/Boxer mix, about a year old and 50 lbs. and very sweet. This big girl is so beautiful and loves to play with soft toys. She loves carrying them around and making the squeak. She also plays like a boxer and used her front paws to "box". It's really cute to watch her do that when she plays with other dogs.

Bradley is an adorable Pekinese mix, approximately 7 years old and about 15 lbs. He has been living in a foster home with 2 other dogs. He is blind and needs time to adjust to new people and environments. He gets scared easily by loud noises and as a defense mechanism, will growl and bark. Bradley prefers an adult only home and could benefit from another calm dog to follow. Bradley is waiting to start his new life in his forever home. Could it be you?


Poppi is a charming 2 year old pooch about 15 pounds. He looks like a chi-pug mix with an adorable curled tail. He is being fostered with other dogs in a very active household and very happy to be in the center of the action. Poppi loves to take long walks, car rides and trips to the dog park. He knows basic commands, is housebroken, and sleeps soundly through the night. The perfect home would be one with older children (they are more predictable than toddlers)or just adults. Poppi is an all around great dog.

Ace is a sweet boy. He is 25 lbs and approximately 1-2 years old. He is eager to please, active, happy, bouncy and all around a great guy. He is fine with other dogs once he is used to them and loves to play with them, but he is much better with females than males.

Selma is a bit of a special needs pup - but don't tell her that. A 4-year-old Gordon Setter mix, she is a calm, sweet and gentle soul who loves everyone and everything. She weighs about 50 lbs. and is, of course, totally housebroken. Her only issue is that she has been diagnosed with a swallowing disorder and needs to be fed only soft food or she is likely to spit up. She gets along great with dogs and cats but if she isn't the only dog in her new home, you'd want to find a way to not tempt her with treats she can't have. She loves to relax at home or go for an easy walk. She is not demanding at all, just sweet and loving with big brown and soulful eyes.

Pumpkin is an adorable Pomeranian mix about 2 years old and around 12 lbs. He is as cute as can be. He is very sweet and loving and gets along with all the dogs in his foster home. Seems to like everyone. Loves to sit on your lap and follow you around the house. Pumpkin is housebroken and walks well on a leash. His tail is always wagging. He would make a wonderful companion for any family. He is a very happy little fella looking for a wonderful forever home.


Bernie is a big St. Bernard and has got to be the most affectionate dog in the world. He is so darn adorable and does not realize that he not a little lap dog. He is constantly under your feet or on your lap unless he is not sprawled out on his side and resting. He is great with cats, dogs, kids and does not pull at the leash, but at 105 lbs, he still can take you for a good stroll if he sees something interesting. He also loves the dog park and it's beautiful to see him run along with his friends. He is almost 2 years old. He was diagnosed with diabetes insipidus and will need to get a pill 2x a day to keep him healthy. This is not regular diabetes, but what's called "water diabetes".
Diabetes Insipidus in Dogs Diabetes insipidus (DI) is a rare disorder that affects water metabolism, preventing the body from conserving water and releasing too much of it. This condition is characterized by increased urination, dilute urine (so-called insipid, or dull urine), and increased thirst and drinking. This disease is not related to diabetes mellitus (insulin diabetes).
His condition is totally controlled with 1 pill 2x a day as long as it's given regularly and he is a normal and very happy dog.

Dupree is a handsome Lab mix boy, about 2 years old. He has a typical happy Lab personality with the most adorable Basset legs. He sleeps in a crate has a cushion he rests on in the living room, or on the rug. He is very smart and is easily trained...he sits, lays down, rolls over, sits and stays. Dupree needs to go to a home with no small children since he is a strong boy. He needs to be an only dog since he does not get along with other dogs. Otherwise, he is a perfect boy.
Thank you in honor of Jessica Stadler's birthday for sponsoring my ticket to freedom!


Mia is an an adorable Beagle mix. She is 6 months old and 18 lbs. She is adorable and just so sweet. Since she can be shy with new things and noises, she would not be a good dog for the city. She is such a gentle little soul and will do really well in a home with another dog to give her confidence. She plays wonderfully with them and is so darn adorable.

Pharaoh is a great dog. He is about 2 1/2 yrs old and 70lbs. We believe he is a Great Dane/Greyhound mix. He likes his humans, and plays well with some dogs, mostly female. He knows how to sit, shake, stay and lay down. He is strong on a leash, but with a little training he can be a wonderful pet. He was turned in by his owner when he became too ill to care for him any longer and love to find an active home that will be his forever home.

Hi my name is Heather and I am a 3 yo Beagle. I am very sweet and love to get belly rubs. I get along well with the other dogs in my foster home. I am not too noisy but will bark if I hear a noise that is unfamiliar. I am a true beagle and have an awesome nose. I love to sniff everything on my walks. I could use some leash training, but I do love to go on walks. I am a little unsure about cars/trucks that zip by me and I am learning to share the street with people. I am housetrained and know how to use a wee wee pad. I prefer not to be left alone for long periods of time. I should not be left alone outside and please be careful around the front door when you enter or leave. I am looking for a loving forever home.

Winter is a sweet playful one-year-old female bully breed. Winter was surrendered to a city shelter where she totally aced her evaluation and quickly became a favorite among the volunteers and other dogs. She has such a sweet and unassuming play-style that even the most un-trusting of dogs can peacefully hang out with her in the yard. In one of her photos, she was getting a kiss from one of the most obnoxious puppies and she was patient and calm the entire time. She’s in a foster home and loves to cuddle with her humans or her foster bully breed brother and she is crate trained. Her foster mom reports that she is generally mild mannered but can get excited and jump up sometimes so continued "4 on the floor" training would be fantastic since she is still young. Winter can sometimes be a bit shy and unsure around some new people but warms up in no time. She’s an ideal family dog and would be a wonderful 2nd or even third dog because she loves all 4 legged creatures.


July is a big bouncy puppy and just as sweet and cuddly as she looks. Only seven months old, she is naturally curious, active and attentive, and learning how to be a dog. Volunteers are teaching her to walk on a leash without pulling, not jump up, and sit on command and she is making good progress. She was abandoned on a busy boulevard in Queens and pulled by Pet Rescue from Animal Care & Control's euthanasia list. She thanks us every day with loads of kisses. July is great with older kids and other dogs and likes to be petted and hugged. At about 40 pounds, she is likely a mastiff/pit mix and her professional evaluation gives her an excellent behavior rating. She easily gives up her food or toys if taken away and shows no aggression.

Bella is such a sweet little girl and is great with gentle children too. She is house/paper trained and is always happy. This little Shiba Inu mix is around 18 months and 12 lbs, she is the perfect little lady.


This is Cooper. He is a 1- 1.5 year old Golden-doodle. He is a good boy, housebroken, sleeps through the night and gets along great with the other dogs in his foster home. Cooper will need to go to a home with another dog as he is insecure and feels more comfortable when there is another dog around. Cooper needs some basic training to blossom into the amazing boy we know he can be. He is looking for a home that will continue his training and who is around enough during the day to continue working with him. Please note, Copper does shed.

Ellie is a gorgeous, sweet 1 year old Lab/Hound Mix. She is 45 Lbs. She is housebroken and knows basic commands. This goofy girl is lively and playful and will make you smile. She is one of those happy go lucky girls. She is not great with some dogs and should be the only dog in the household with no young children. Since she still has a lot of puppy energy, she would be better off in an adult home. She rides well in the car, too.


Brad is an adorable 35 lb, 1 year old male Terrier Mix. He is a good boy that is eager to please. He enjoys playing in the yard and loves playing with toys. He is working on his leash walking and housebreaking. What a cutie!

Shorty is a sweet and playful mixed-breed terrier, who has had to deal with some special “challenges.” Abandoned as a puppy, she spent the first two years of her life in a cage and was passed around for much of the next three. Because of an untreated ear infection, she is now completely deaf and also takes medication for a skin allergy. Despite it all, she is the sweetest, most gentle and affectionate dog you will ever meet. As is the case with many deaf dogs, she likes to be in constant close proximity with her owner when inside the home. And although Shorty is not an incessant barker, she sometimes barks in frustration and would not be an ideal apartment dweller. A home with another dog to play with or a person who is home a lot would be perfect. Shorty has never been handled as a deaf dog, but she could benefit from someone who is interested in understanding how deafness is experienced by dogs, and who could learn then teach her a few simple signs. Shorty is cuddly and loves adults, children and other dogs. She is fine with cats too. She may sometimes bark at someone passing by, but once she is familiar with an environment that behavior stops. She enjoys brisk walks on the leash and is very responsive.


This adorable little boy loves to be held and likes a person to bond with. He is 11 lbs and good with cats and dogs. At about 2 years of age, he has settled down and is looking for a quiet home without too much commotion. He would prefer a home without kids.

I am sweet, calm, gentle and good with children and other dogs. I ride well in the car, am crate trained and sleep through the night without a peep. Do hate to admit I need a little lease training though. I am too cute for words when I wrinkle my brow. I would love to come live in your home forever. Love & kisses Archie

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!
