Toby

Meet Toby a beautiful 3 year old bully breed. Toby is a young dog with an old soul. While he has lots of energy, he is also a big mush. He loves to sit on your lap and cuddle with you every opportunity he gets. His foster family says that he is very well mannered, doesn't beg, is good on a leash and is totally housebroken. His favorite activities are to play ball and then take a leisurely nap in the grass. He sits patiently for his treats and takes them with a soft mouth. He loves ice cubes and will fetch them out of his water bowl. Toby came to us from a very sad situation. He lived in a loving home with 2 children and two dogs. Unfortunately, his human passed away and because of his size, he came to live with us.

Larz

Larz is an adorable Lab mix, very sweet and friendly. He is learning to walk quite nicely on his leash and starting to love his walks through Harrison. His favorite past time at the kennel facility is to play with toys and chew on bone and bully sticks. More than anything though, Larz would love to find his forever home and spend quality time with his new family. Larz plays nicely with other dogs shows no interest in cats!

Skip

Skip is very excitable and a jumpy dog! He and some fellow pet rescue residents are best buds. We are working on some of his mouthy behavior so we recommend no children and someone who will follow through with his training. He especially loves long walks or hikes and needs 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.

Tish

Tish is a beautiful hound mix, inside and out. She is about 5 year old and 50 lbs. She is sweet and not a mean bone in her body. 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. A fenced yard would be great so she can stretch her long legs. She loves walks and follows her nose wherever it leads her. She loves children and good with cats also. Tish would do best with an experienced dog family.

Mona

Mona is a beautiful approximate 1 year old 47 pound shepherd mix. She is the wonderful mom of the M puppies and is ready for her happily ever after. She came to us starving and emaciated with a litter of 8 puppies, but with a lot of love and care from our volunteers, she has put on weight and is doing amazingly well. Mona loves to play and run at the dog park and to spend a lot of time with her doting foster Dad.

Myles

Myles is an adorable Lab mix pup, about 35 lbs and around 5 1/2 months old. He is a calm, gentle soul who is friendly with everyone he meets. Myles loves to play, but is also just as happy laying next to you getting his head scratched or his belly rubbed. He settled in beautifully to his foster home and is very attached to his human foster brothers - he follows them around everywhere. Myles is good with kids but he is a big puppy and does still jump up a little. He is almost housebroken, sleeps quietly through the night in his crate and walks very nicely on the leash. Myles is a gem of a family dog.

Dixie is a Pekingese, about a year old and 14 lbs. She has a great personality and loves to play. She is in a foster home with 2 other dogs and gets along with them.

Phoebe

Phoebe is a one year old Min Pin mix who weighs in at only 7 pounds. But don’t let her size fool you - she has the energy and stamina of any big dog! She loves to go on walks, and she would love a fenced in backyard or someplace safe where she can run around. Phoebe is a little love bug who is super affectionate and a champion cuddler. She can be a little shy when she first meets someone, but that goes away in about 5 minutes. She gets along great with her furry foster siblings, but is still learning that dogs she meets on her walks are not scary. The more exposure she has to other dogs, the more comfortable she becomes meeting others. Phoebe recently had hip surgery and needs to start using her leg more now that she is healing. With lots of exercise and TLC, she should make a full recovery.

Coco

Coco is a very sweet 4 year old Cairn Terrier mix and about 14 lbs. Coco loves playing with her toys, especially when you throw her a ball. Coco is in a foster home with other dogs and cats and is being house/crate trained. She's a lovely sweet dog and will make someone a wonderful companion.

Tilly

If I had to describe Tilly in three words I would say: stunning, athletic, endearing. Her looks are striking. She is a beautiful blond and white dog with eyes that look attentively into her handler’s eyes. 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. Muscles galore on her lean body make her look like a proficient agility dog. There is a winning adoration for the people she has come to know here at Pet Rescue. She has learned to trust and love people for probably the first time in a long time (or ever). You see she was left abandoned in an apartment with her sibling – both were nearly starved to death when found. Yet she forgives and forgets. Tilly would do best in a home with someone who is dog savvy and can read a dog’s behavior. Tilly is a wonderful communicator and can always tell us when something makes her uncomfortable (like doing her nails).

Andy

Andy is a 5-8 year-old Shiba Inu with high energy and a very nice personality. He loves to go for nice walks with the volunteers at the facility. On his walks he just loves to “go, go, go”. In the office, he is calm and curious. He is fun to train because he does a lovely sit and makes very nice eye contact with the handler. Unfortunately, Andy has a heart condition but he doesn’t seem to know it. He loves his walks and to just hang out in the office. He would be best in a home as the only dog. We do not know how long Andy has but we would want him to live out his final years, months or days in a home versus a kennel facility where he could be loved and cared for. Andy should not go to a home with cats and prefers to be an only dog.

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!

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.

Jewels is a beautiful Border Collie mix about 1 year old and weighing about 28 lbs. She is very sweet and friendly and enjoys playing with other dogs. Jewels would prefer an owner who is home a lot and would love an experienced dog family with older children.

Chen

Chen is a yorkie poodle mix that is 2 years old and approximately 8 lbs. Chen is a real cuddle bug and loves to jump in your lap if he knows you. At the kennel he has some dogs that he walks with but can be dog selective. There are times that he is anxious around strangers and can be reactive so we recommend no children. Super smart with his training and we would encourage he stays on a training program to build his confidence with strangers.

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.

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 would love to have a fur brother or sister to live with and would prefer to go to a home with older children. Presently I live with 5 cats & 3 other dogs. I sit on my fosters Moms 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 weight about 50 lbs and I’m about 2 years old. I am a sweet, gentle, teddy bear of a girl.

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. He is housebroken if kept on a schedule and sleeps through the night on his foster mom's bed.

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.

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 that 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.

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.
