Baxter

Baxter is a beautiful Beagle mix, about 1-2 years old and 38 lbs. He is very friendly, outgoing and gorgeous all at the same time. Baxter can be demanding at times and will grab you for his attention. We are working on helping him to learn better ways of communicating, but in the meantime, he needs to go to a home without children and other pets.

Clare

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

This acronym describes me, CLARE. I’m almost 2 years old female hound mix, weighing about 60 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.

Stevey

Stevey has a serious face but don’t let that fool you. This is one tail-wagger, kisser and want-to-be lap dog. He is playful and friendly and when he’s really happy he prances around like a stallion. Chasing balls and chewing bones are among his favorite activities. A two-year-old pitbull, he acts more like a puppy and is a true poster boy when it comes to a good temperament. He loves people, play bows to other dogs, walks well on a leash and seems okay with cats. He’s compact and lean - only 45 pounds - and has the silkiest chocolate coat. He is easy to bathe, likes to ride in the car, and enjoys cuddling on the couch. Stevey is very smart and likes to learn new things. He has consistently been a star pupil of our “nosework” class and the trainers adore him. Pet Rescue saved perfectly-rated Stevey from euthanasia at the overcrowded NYC shelter where he'd arrived as a stray. Help us give him another chance!

Snoopy

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.

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!

Fergie

Fergie is a playful, happy girl who wags her tail all day long. She loves people and other dogs. She's always up for a good time and is first to play and last to quit. She will case a ball, but doesn't see why she should return it (hey, if you wanted it, why did you throw it??). She appears house trained. She's as beautiful as she is fun. Fergie would enjoy trips to the dog park as well as hikes and walks. She sits quietly in the car for rides. She gently takes treats from your hand. Fergie is around 1 year old and possibly an Australian Shepherd/Collie mix. You have to see her to believe her! Fergie is an energetic girl that will need to go to a home with adults or older children. She will jump up on you if she gets excited and is very bouncy.

Monica

Monica is an adorable female terrier/chi mix puppy that is 5 lbs. DOB 3/4/2015. She is already wee-wee pad trained and is comfortable in her puppy pen with her dog bed when not with you and at night. She loves to play with her toys and the other dogs in her foster home, too. Monica is very much a puppy and mouthy so very young children are not recommended for her. Her mom is Mara a 15 lb. wire haired terrier mix who is also posted. Monica is a smooth coat terrier mix (we don't know who dad was) and probably will be small when grown.

Rusty

Rusty is about 25 lbs, 1-2 years old and very pretty. He a very good boy and very well behaved. He looks like a Pharaoh hound mix. He is very cuddly and loves to sit in your lap. He is good with other dogs and plays very appropriately. He is enrolled in our tracking class and is really good at it. He just loves to be out there and have fun. He would do best in an adult home or a home with older children since he can still be a bit mouthy when he gets excited.

Thank you In honor of Denise's Birthday for sponsoring my ticket to freedom!

Prada

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 someone 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.

Maci

Maci is a very smart and sweet girl. She is great with other dogs and loves people. She is about 50 lbs and 1 year old. She is calm in the house and playful outside. She is still a young girl and will need pay mates or play dates to keep her busy. She is all around a really nice and well adjusted dog.

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?

Kensy

Ok, we have new puppies that do not know how to walk on a leash. Someone grab Kensy and let’s teach them how to walk. So-n-So is inexperienced in playing with other dogs so let’s put him/her in a yard with Kensy. I am having a really bad day, let me take Kensy in the office with me because I know she will snuggle and give me unconditional love.

Kensy is our long-term dog at the kennel. Why is she here so long? She is so shy she does not do well at “Meet and Greets”. If someone is willing to give her the time to warm up to him or her and snuggle, they have found their “diamond in the rough”. Kensy needs a home to rescue her from the kennel life. Yes she saves so many of our pets that struggle with kennel life; but Kensy should have a home of her own. Given time, she will be the most perfect pet. She needs to be with a calm, pet-filled household. If you think you are that family, Kensy will meet you if you have the patience and time to let her warm up to you.

Kensy is a gorgeous Beagle mix, about 2 years old and weighs about 25 lbs. She is housebroken (and crate trained), a big couch potato, loves to run and play with other dogs, very sweet, loves to cuddle, is friendly with cats and also rides well in the car.

She is currently taking tracking classes and is one of our star pupils at this sport. She will amaze you with all the tricks she can do, but most of all, she wants a home of her own and LOVE you!

Ashley

This adorable girl is about 1-2 years old and 40 lbs. She is a collie mix with a very sweet personality. She is totally house broken and great in the home. She does not do well with other dogs on leash. She is a wonderful girl that loves life and makes you smile.

Chuck

Chuck. Is. Awesome. He kind of gets passed over because he looks a little ordinary. But much like the nice guy you passed over in high school, this boy is a keeper: smart, charming, handsome, and ready to make you love of his life. While he loves to play, with dogs or people, he is just as happy hanging out or taking a nap by your feet. He takes treats gently from your hand and would make a great family dog. Chuck's ready to move in and give you love and devotion. He's perfection with fur and a tail. He is about 2 years old and around 55 lbs, and house trained! What more can you want??
