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!

Ace

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.

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.

Brad

Brad is a real cutie pie. He is a 1 year old, male Terrier Mix and is about 35 pounds. He is very smart and knows some basic commands. Because he is so bright he will readily learn many more. He is housebroken and walks beautifully on a leash. Brad loves to play and go on long walks but at the end of the day, his one and only concern is major cuddle time. He will climb right up next to you and put his head in your lap. He also just loves being in the same room as his people. He will follow you around and find a nice place to snooze while you do your work. He really just wants to be your one and only so no other pets please. Brad is adorable and a very special boy. If you want to cuddle, this little guy is for you. Brad will do best in an adult home, since he tends to bark at visitors.

Stevey

Stevey has a serious face but don’t let that fool you. This is one big 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, but what he needs most is another dog who wants to play as much as he does. A four-year-old pitbull, he acts more like a puppy and is a true poster boy when it comes to a good temperament. He play bows to other dogs, walks well on a leash, sits for treats, and lets people take toys and bones right out of his mouth. However, he would benefit from basic obedience training and needs a fenced yard or dog park where he can run. He’s compact and lean - only 45 pounds - and has the silkiest chocolate coat. In a foster home, he was easy to bathe, liked to ride in the car, and enjoyed cuddling on the couch. He’s a little too exuberant with cats so would probably be best in a feline-free home. Stevey was found on a street in Manhattan and while he aced his behavior evaluation and the volunteers loved him, he still ended up on the euthanasia list in an overwhelmed shelter system. Help us give him another chance!

Jack

Jack is an adorable 3 year old, 29 lb purebred Jagdterrier (pronounced YAHK terrier), a rare German dog bred for its ability to hunt both above and below ground. Jack is intelligent, affectionate and devoted, and loves making his master happy. A true working terrier, he needs lots of time and room to run and exercise, and can entertain himself for hours searching for small critters. Ideally he will find a forever home with a large property or farmland for him to do what he was bred to do, but a daily excursion to a large dog-park will suffice. Jack was owned by a wealthy family with a large compound and spent much of his time outdoors; he was abandoned when they relocated overseas. Jack gets along well with other dogs but would probably prefer to be a solo pet. Young children are not recommended. He is neutered, housebroken, good on the leash and in the car and knows basic commands. After a busy day Jack likes nothing better than to curl up for a good snuggle and a belly rub. Might it be with you?

Patrick

Hello! I am Patrick. I am a three year old beagle mix looking for my forever home. I am completely housebroken, great with other dogs, very good in the car, and very, very loving. I enjoy the dog park, walks, chewing on bones, and playing with the dogs in my foster home. My very favorite thing though, is cuddling in your lap. If you let me, I will sleep in your bed and make you laugh by diving under the covers. I don't like when children jump on me, so I would prefer a home with older children or adults only.

Ivory

Ivory is a lovely Spaniel mix. She is a little over a year old. She is very friendly to anyone who comes to visit in her foster home. She gets along well with the other foster dogs and loves to run and play with them. She would be with someone who loves the outdoors and enjoys going for long walks. Ivory is completely house trained and will signal at the door to let you know she wants to go out. Everyone who comes to visit enjoys having her around them because she is very affectionate. Ivory is looking forward to being adopted into a loving forever home.

Pharoah

Pharaoh is a great dog. He is about 3 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 who became too ill to care for him any longer. He would love to find an active forever home.

Kensy

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 couch 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 other dogs and loves to play with lots of toys. Kensy would be fine going to a home with cats. 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.

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.

Cricket

Cricket is a great girl. She is about 8 months and 18lbs. She is totally house trained, crate trained (but doesn't need it). She is good with kids, dogs and cats too. She is a little submissive around new dogs if they want to play, but if they are laying down, she will go right up and snuggle with them. She is enjoying the snow very much. She buries her head in the snow and runs around as happy as can be. She is quiet, gentle and loves to be petted, of course belly rubs are the best. Her favorite thing is to chase a tennis ball.

Selma

Selma is a bit of a special needs dog - 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 soulful eyes.

Dupree

Dupree is a handsome Lab mix boy, about 3 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 an experienced owner and 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 great boy.

Ellie

Ellie is an exquisite Hound/Lab mix with maybe some Shepherd mixed in. She is about 2 years old and 55 lbs. She is goofy and loves to play - she is especially fond of tennis balls. Ellie gets a little nervous when on leash and surrounded by many different dogs but happily plays with certain dogs, always sharing her beloved tennis balls. Although slightly timid, she enjoys being with her humans. She knows some basic commands, is housebroken and rides well in a car too. Give this girl a home and she will give you her whole heart. This video shows just what a gentle girl she is: http://youtu.be/O8dS65MBSyk

From our Trainer:

When I first met Ellie (now warmly called Ellie Bellie) in September, she was a shut down dog that rarely ever made eye contact no less allowed you to pet her. She became our project. We would hand feed her so that she understood “humans” are pretty good. We would up the ante and feed her when she looked up toward the face. Eventually the food was moved up around the eyes. One day she actually looked into my eyes. It was that day that I saw the beautiful soul of an absolutely exquisite dog.

Ellie would hang out in the office with one of us when answering calls or doing paper work. She started out playing on the opposite side of the room, but eventually would come over to the desk for a quick snuggle or pet. Now when she is in the office, her head rests on our laps.

The turning point was when she was placed in the yard with one of our more difficult dogs. The expression of who rescued who has never been so accurate as watching these two play together. She now plays with another dog, always sharing her beloved tennis balls with her newfound friend. Ellie still gets a little nervous when on leash and surrounded by many different dogs but now loves to be around all humans. When one of us was away for a period of time and returned, Ellie saw that person from across the room and did a full body wag, greeting them with such enthusiasm. That is when I knew our sweet Ellie would make someone a perfect pet and companion.

Dixie

Dixie is an adorable Basset mix, about 24 lbs. She is very sweet and friendly and great with other dogs. This sociable little girl is about 1-2 years old and as sweet as can be. She is housebroken. A very good girl. Walks well on a leash. Would be the perfect dog for any family.

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.
