Mia

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.

Dupree

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.

Bradley

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?

Jack

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.

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!

Lucy

Lucy is a beautiful 8 yr old girl who will melt your heart. SHe is a lab mix and 35 lbs. She has the most soulful eyes. She is paralyzed due to a compressed disc in her back and subsequent operation. She gets around as if nothing is the matter with her wheels. Because she is paralyzed she cannot urinate on her own and you have to express her bladder every 4 hours. Also, due to the paralysis she does have chronic urinary tract infection and is currently on antibiotics. Lucy is anxious to please and would make a wonderful companion to a kind, compassionate loving person.

Sandy

Sandy is a 12 week old male Husky/lab/Shepard mix pup. He has very soft fur and is the smallest in his litter of three. He has a very sweet and gentle disposition and would do well in most any family setting...with other animals, children or on his own. He is playful and loves his foster brother, Rocky, a 9 year old golden retriever. Sandy has two scars on his nose. Although we don't know what happened to cause these scars they have become distinguishing marks for him and add to his overall appeal! Sandy is mostly "paper oriented", is neutered and micro chipped. This little guy will steal your heart the minute you hold him! He is a love and deserves love back!

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.

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 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.

Heather

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.

Brian is a mix of basset hound and collie- not sure where the coloring came from though. He is a perfect family companion.

Lola

Lola is a big bouncy puppy just like her sister July. Only seven months old and about 40 pounds, 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. A mastiff/pit mix, she was abandoned on a busy boulevard in Queens and pulled by Pet Rescue from Animal Care & Control's euthanasia list. She loves to be with people and is always enthusiastic. Lola likes kids and other dogs but because of her energy would be best with older kids. She enjoys being petted and received an excellent behavior rating during a professional evaluation.

Mikey

Mikey is an adorable boy, about 5 years old. He is calm and easy going - he would like to find a home as an only dog and no children.

Patricia

Patricia is a beautiful speckled 1-2 year old Cattle Dog mix. She adores running in the dog park, especially chasing thrown balls. She is good with people & other dogs & completely housebroken. True to her breed, she is a working dog & would love a job to do. She would probably be great in agility classes! Although she is good with other dogs, she would be best as an only dog and in a household without cats.

Thank you In loving memory of Gerald Loeb for sponsoring my vet care!

Ellie

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.

Ryleigh

Ryleigh is the sweetest, and most gentle lady. She is a 12 pound chihuahua around 8 years old. Ryleigh was used as a breeding dog and then discarded. Now in a loving home she just loves to be held, watch a little TV and be pampered. Ryeleigh gets along with all the other critters in her foster home although she is quite happy being with the adults who care for her. She would love a home where she will be safe and loved. She is a really good leash walker and loves her walks, but overall she is a quiet dog that is not very high energy. She adapts easily to change and just goes with the flow. She is a real love!
Thank you in memory of Erich Aulfinger for sponsoring my ticket to freedom!

Bubba

Bubba is an adorable Shepherd/lab mix and around 1-2 years old. At 40 lbs, he is just about the perfect size. He is a great dog.

Pharoah

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.

Selma

Selma is a bit of a special needs pup - but don't tell her that. A 3-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.

Clare

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.

Duncan

Duncan is a 2 year old 12 lb. Yorkie. He seems to be housebroken. He is very loving and gentle. He seems to be use to walking on a leash because he is very good at it. Walks right next to you without pulling. Loves all the dogs in his foster home. Loves everyone. Duncan would make a wonderful addition to any family.

Wylie

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.

Charlie

Charlie is an adorable Lab/Shepherd mix. He is about 25lbs and 4-5 months old. He is a bouncy boy and would do well in a home that can give him the exercise he needs.

July

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 and her sister Lola (also available) were 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 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.

Morgan

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.

Shorty

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.

Jessie

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.
