Felix is about 3 years, he is a JRT mix that is about 14lbs. He is a love to those that know him, but he is shy when he first meets you. He is fine with some dogs but prefers to be your one and only. He needs a loving and nurturing home that will have the time and patience to help him come out of his shell and be the amazing boy he was meant to be!

Meet Lucky! He is a gorgeous lab mix (?) weighing about 35 pounds and is approximately 2 years old...but boy is he wise beyond his years! Lucky is perfect on a leash and is completely house trained. Despite his lonely beginnings, this handsome boy is such a sweet, gentle, loving soul. His foster parents can't get over how well behaved he is! He just loves his cozy crate, squeaky toys, and long walks. Lucky doesn't seem to mind other dogs...simply curious, but this hasn't been fully tested as of yet. Lucky is super easy going and would be a wonderful addition to a family without young children. All Lucky needs to be happy is to find someone (or many someone's) to love him...and he will give so much love in return! No cats for Lucky.

Cub is an adorable Chow mix, about 2-3 years old and 45 lbs. He is a real gentlemen and loves his walks. The foster mom in West Virginia stated that he loves car drives. He is a real beauty and you must see him in person! Can be reactive to cars and trucks so he would not be a candidate for the city at this time.


Laverne is an adorable pup, about 8 months old and 38 lbs. She is very sweet but can be timid in new situations. She is adjusting nicely to her foster home and learning to trust her humans. She would do best in an all adult home or a home with older children.

Hi, I’m Minky - a stunningly beautiful approximately 1 year old, 12 lb. little Pom/Chi ? mix with the most gorgeous coat and coloring. I’ve had a very rough start to life so I’m shy and timid with new people, but once I feel safe and loved, I will be your absolute best friend and follow you around every where. I seem to be housebroken, I sleep quietly in my crate overnight, I am very good on a leash and really enjoy being outside. I am settling in nicely to my foster home and getting along very well with my furry foster siblings. My forever family MUST be an adult only, quiet, predictable home, have previous shy dog experience and have another friendly dog. I can’t wait for my happily ever after :).


Kaleah is an adorable Chihuahua mix who is about 5 years old and weighs about 11 lbs. She is very sweet and will do best in an adult only family as she will attach herself to one person. She is the definition of a lap dog. Kaleah is happiest on her foster mom's lap giving kisses. She loves to go for walks and trips in the car where she sits quietly on her seat. She also is easily trained using her favorite treats. Kaleah is housebroken and does not bark when left alone for a few hours. The right person will be treated to lots of love by this little girl.

Honey is an adorable boxer mix. She is about a year old and approximately 40lbs. We are working on walking her with other dogs and she is doing nicely! However, she would prefer to be the only dog. Easy to walk on a leash and just a real beauty.

Chen is a yorkie/poodle mix who is 2 years old and approximately 8 lbs. Chen recently spent time in a foster home and the foster mom said he is human selective. There are times he can be anxious and reactive with strangers. However, if he likes you, he is incredible! No children should be in the home because of his selective nature. At the kennel he plays nicely with some of the dogs in specific play groups. He does nicely in his pack walks in the neighborhood. He is super smart with his training and would need to stay on a training program to build his confidence with strangers. Chen needs a home with an experienced dog person. He would not do well in the city. Chen seems very appropriate with cats.

An adult dog (appx. 7) that knows what he likes and he likes you! He will alert you to people at your door and will happily go to his place so that you can welcome your guests. Red enjoys a quiet space in our facility with his favorite toys. He loves to go on long walks with our volunteers and some of his quiet furry friends. He would do well in a peaceful home with few distractions but boy he loves to hang out with his humans. Currently he needs to go to an "only dog" home and someone with dog experience so that they can help him keep this lovely behavior.


I am a real buddy. I will follow you everywhere. I will run with my foster sister and brother but I don’t like to rough house. I don’t need to go on long walks, but love being out doors. If you want a quiet more settled pup that’s me. I am calm, sweet, house broken, crate trained, sleep thru the night and I suggest a house without cats. I can be an only dog. I am about 48 lbs and 3 years old give or take. I am friendly with dogs and people I meet, and totally love children. If you come down to my level I will literally hug you. I just want to be loved.
Thank you In honor of Sandi the love of our lives for sponsoring my vet care!

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!

Praline is a one year old lab/ beagle mix that came in very shy and afraid of all humans but boy - does she love to play with all dogs. What gets her to the end of the day is the chance to walk and play with all her friends. She is learning that humans give her that opportunity to go on long walks with her other canine buddies so she finally let's them approach and touch her. Actually, she is starting to like to be pet and massaged by humans and will nudge their hand for more! The person willing to rescue Praline must have at least one other dog, a 6-ft fenced in yard, no small children, and willing to work slowly and with predictability with our very shy girl.

Scout is a wonderful 10 year young perfect pooch! He is a spaniel mix and about 50 lbs. He is an easy boy who will fit in to any home. He is completely housebroken, sleeps on a bed in his foster parents room all night without a peep and can be left alone during the work day with no destruction. He knows sit and paw and rides great in the car. Scout is very playful and loves a good game of catch. But, when it's time to settle down, he climbs on the couch for a good, long snuggle and belly rub. Don't miss out on this great boy! He is a true gem!


Doogie is a year old terrier mix who weighs about 38 lbs. He is doing nicely in his training and enjoys going on long walks and spending time outside. He does go on walks with other dogs and can hang out with quiet dogs in a yard. He would do best in a home with older children.

Roger is a beautiful pure breed (?) Shih Tzu who is about 1-1/2 yrs old and 15 lbs. This little guy had very little human contact before coming to Pet Rescue. He has been living in a loving foster home for the past 5 months and has come a long way, but still has a long way to go. He takes treats from his foster mom's hand and let's her pick him up to get petted, but tenses up before he relaxes. He does not willingly go up to her on his own. He is friendly with other dogs of all sizes - in fact, he needs a home that has at least one other friendly dog who can teach him that the world is a fun, happy place. He shares in all dog activities - toys, treats, outdoor exploring, playing and napping. He is cat-friendly and house trained too. Roger needs a special human with patience, love and understanding to give him the time he needs to adjust to living as a beloved pet and family member. Please -- a home without children, a fenced-in yard and another dog(s) is a must.


Gloria is an adorable Wire Haired Terrier mix pup, about 4 months old. Very sweet and friendly but needs to go to an "only dog" home or a home with a confident dog. She loves playing with toys and running in the yard but will then be a perfect cuddle buddy with her people.

Melody is an adorable mini Lab(?) mix who is approx 3-4 yrs old and weighing about 20 lbs. She is housebroken, friendly with dogs, and kids, loves to cuddle, sleeps thru the night, enjoys her time in the yard. She would make a perfect companion for a loving family with another dog.


Harper is an adorable Husky mix, about a year old and 30 lbs. He is very sweet and friendly. He has some basic manners training in place. Potentially house broken here at the facility! He loves playing in the yard with all his furry friends. Would be best in a house with a fenced in yard and older children due to his lively, puppy-like personality.

TJ is the sweetest boy you'll meet. TJ is a 15 lb and about 10 year young Bichon. He's a love bug and never gets tired of being with you. He's great with other dogs and cats, too. TJ needs to be in a quiet house with a yard. TJ likes to explore his yard before making so a fenced in yard is important. TJ is also very demanding at meal time and will bark for his meals so apartments won't do. TJ will stay overnight in a covered crate without a sound. TJ doesn't like car rides unless he's crated and then will settle in. TJ will make a lucky person a wonderful companion if you can be flexible and patient with him.


Sammi is a beautiful lab/hound mix, about a year old and 40 lbs. She is very sweet and friendly. She loves going for long walks either alone or with other dogs. She is teaching our young shy dogs how to walk nicely on a leash. At this time she would need an owner with dog experience to work on manners training.
