Madison is a beautiful 4-year old Pointer mix, around 60 lbs, who loves being active and adores people. She has a beautiful chocolate brown coat and silky ears. Madison is well behaved and knows all her basic commands (sit, stay, down) and is good on a leash. She is eager to learn and very motivated by treats and praise. Her perfect day would consist of a hike or a long walk, some time with a puzzle toy, and then a good belly rub and cuddle time on the couch. She is best suited to a calm but physically active home with adults/older children only and no other animals as she enjoys being the center of attention. Madison is very smart and would do best with an owner with time home during the day, so she doesn't get bored. She was crate trained as a puppy, but now stays out all day and sleeps on the biggest pile of blankets she can find at night. Madison has a bit of hunting instinct in her and does not get along with cats or small animals.


Eloise is a gorgeous 1 year old Lab/Hound Mix. She is 45 Lbs. Eloise is housebroken and knows basic She would benefit being in a home with a large fenced in yard to romp around and play. Her cork is that she does not get along with all dogs and is unpredictable as to who she will not get along with, so she should be an only dog in the home and not live where there are lots of dogs around. Eloise is an athletic playful dog. She is a beautiful dog waiting for the right home!

Minnie is an adorable one year old 10 pound Yorkie/Chi mix. She is very sweet, loves to cuddle and kiss and is eager is jump up on a lap any chance she gets! (She is much cuter in person.) Minnie is pretty much an all around good girl. She is good with cats, dogs (but can be bossy), older kids, good in the car and enjoys walks and playing in the yard. She sleeps all night in her foster parent's bed. She is working on her housebreaking and has even starting going to the door. Minnie will do best in a home where someone is home often. Although not hyper-allergenic, Minnie does not appear to shed much.

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.

Myrtle is an adorable 2 year old Shih Tzu mix and weighs 12 lbs. She is a spunky little girl that likes to go for walks and play with her squeeky toys. Myrtle is very friendly, housebroken, and gets along with everybody: kids, cats, and other dogs. She has been a wonderful mom to her puppies Amy, Ace, Astro, and Apollo who have all been adopted. Myrtle would make a great addition to any family.


Sally is an adorable female Feist mix. She is a cutie and on the shy side at first. Although shy, her feisty nature shows once she gets acclimated. She is about 12 pounds and enjoys lots of exercise. She does walk on the leash pretty well. Her foster mom takes her and her big lab/mix foster brother hiking or to the golf course every day and she lives for this. She adores her foster brother and follows him everywhere. She is afraid of large groups of dogs and a bit skittish around other people initially, but not at all aggressive. Potty training is going well, consistency is key. It has been wonderful to see her come out of her shell. She has such a cute way about her. She loves to be with her foster Family at meals, watching TV and she is a cuddler. Her foster mom takes her in the car very often and she is great, loves looking out the window. She needs a forever home as she has been through a lot and needs security. She will make a loyal, loving and very smart companion for life.

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.

Frederick is an adorable pup, about 12 weeks old. We are not sure of his breed but we do know that he is very cute! This is a very outgoing and friendly puppy that loves everybody. He is full of joyful play and then collapses into a deep sleep. We found out that Frederick is deaf, but it does not seem to affect him at all.

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!

Owen is a gorgeous male Cocker Spaniel around 5 years old. He is a happy people loving boy. He can deal with other dogs, he just does not want to live with them. People on the other hand, he goes gaga for!! He would make a great companion for an empty nester or someone looking for a companion. He is happiest as a lap dog and will do best where he can be the center of someone's world.

Gail is a real sweetheart and would fit right in with any home. She is a lab mix about 4 years old. In her foster home she blended right in with the foster Mom, Dad, cats and dogs. She is so well behaved and calm. Loves to snuggles on the sofa with you anytime you let her. She totally loves children and tries to burrow into them as close as she can get. House broken and crate trained even though she does not need to be in one. A sweeter pup you would not find.

Precious is just that - a precious little girl. She is so sweet and gentle and loves everybody. She is about 4 years old and 8 lbs. This little girl is good with other dogs and cats and all people. She loves to snuggle, but is easily able to hang out next to you. You hardly ever hear her bark either and as a result she would be well suited for apartment living too. She is a good walker and can keep up with you on her daily walks. She had seizures about 1x a month, but is on medication now to control it.


Ryleigh is the sweetest, and most gentle lady. She is a 9 pound chihuahua mix around 8 years old. Ryleigh was probably 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.

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. He needs to be an only dog since he does not get along with other dogs. Otherwise, he is a perfect boy.

Cookie is a very happy and playful girl. She loves to be around people and loves playing with other dogs. She can be nervous around new people and sometimes barks at them, especially men, but she LOVES children and will hop right into their laps and soak up all the attention she can possibly get. We still think she should go to a home with older children that are respectful of a dog's needs. She is about 15 months old small at only about 15 lbs. She is such an adorable little girl that is full of happiness.

Harry is a yellow lab mix pup about 13 months old and 40lbs. He is a sweet boy and enjoys playing in the yard with other dogs from the neighborhood. He sleeps through the night in his crate and is crated during the day when no one is home. He is doing really well with training as well. He seems to enjoy learning new things. He knows how to: sit, stay, come, down and paw. He is working on his 'place' command and 'look' as well. He does have some fears of loud noises and hasn't done well in a very active home with small children. We believe he would be best suited in a home that has dog experience, older children and can work with him to continue to learn and grow to overcome his fears. We also do not believe he would do well in an urban environment.


Rooney is a sweet and adorable Shepherd mix male pup, about 1 year old. He LOVES to be around other dogs, big and small. He is a bit shy around new people, but comes out of his shell fairly quickly. He has an amusing personality, loves to play with toys, and the other dogs in his foster home. He sleeps through the night in an open crate or on a dog bed next to his foster mom. He still needs some work on his housebreaking, but is a great dog that would make a nice addition to any family.

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.


Dodger is a sweetheart of a dog and loves being just a dog. He looks like a Lhasa Apso mix, about 5 years old and 18 lbs. Dodger is a mellow, low energy boy and lives in a foster home with 4 other dogs, but would probably like being in a quiet home. He's house trained, loves going for walks, and rides well in the car. Dodger is a sensitive dog that can be a little shy and react to fast movements. No children should be in the household for that reason. Someone that is dog savvy and knows the Lhasa bred personality would be ideal. They need to show Dodger the world is a safe place and trusting people is new to him. His foster mom thinks he's doing great now; and really wants to please, he just needs a patient person.

Sparky is a delightful 12 pound, 6 year old mellow JRT mix. He gets along with cats, dogs and kids. He is easy on a leash and in the car. Sparky is calm in the house and loves to explore his surroundings. He is such a gentle soul who is waiting patiently for a family to call his own.


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.

Eclair is a very sweet female mixed breed pup, about 1 year old, weighing 40 lbs. She is friendly and great with other dogs, cats, and children. Although very shy in new places, she is out of her shell in her foster home where she runs and plays with her foster sisters. Éclair would do well in a home with a person who is home a lot, another dog (although not required), and a fenced-in yard because she will not walk on a leash. Eclair has a scar under her right eye, no doubt inflicted on her when she was younger. It does not stop her, as she is full of zest. She is a loving cuddly girl who deserves a loving home.

Jack is a sweet, spunky 1 1/2 year old Jagdterrier. At home he is a couch potato: enjoys being with you to snuggle or play with his toys. His favorite activity is running at the dog park, which is does daily. He is exceedingly fast. He needs a fenced in yard and a family with kids 8 years old and up to play with. Living with another dog would be a plus for him. Jack has a strong personality, and is a terrier so an experienced dog owner is a must. He is housebroken and knows basic commands. He is patiently waiting for that special somebody to take him home to love.
