Edward

Edward (aka Eddie in his foster home) is a super sweet an adorable 12lb, approximately 8 year old Doxie/Terrier ? mix who was rescued from the Texas hurricane area. He enjoys taking walks or just curling up with someone for nice cuddle. Edward gets along well with other dogs and sleeps quietly in his foster mom’s room at night. He would be a wonderful companion dog for someone looking for a gentle, loving, affectionate senior dog. Edward would prefer his family to be home with him often.

Cub

Cub is an adorable Chow mix, about 2-3 years old and 45 lbs. He is a real gentlemen -- and loves car drives. He is a real beauty and you must see him in person! He can be reactive to cars and trucks so he would not be a candidate for city life at this time. That said, he is doing nicely on his long walks here at our facility. He would be best in a home with a female dog or a quiet, appropriate dog. Do not recommend cats.

Swifty

Swifty is a ridiculously precious, roly-poly, tiny Chihuahua mix puppy who is approximately 3 months old and weighs less than 4 lbs. He loves to chase you through the yard and every once and while he'll take a roll in the grass. Swifty loves his toys and he's always dragging them in and out of his crate. He follows you from room to room, never wanting to be too far away from his people. Once he is done playing and romping, his favorite thing is to curl-up in a blanket and sit close to you. Swifty is working on his housetraining and does well if he's kept on a schedule. He is just an adorable little boy, and since he is so small, Swifty is looking for a forever family with older children.

Ada

Little Miss Ada is a super sweet 12 lb approximately 12 year old Terrier (?) mix rescued from the Texas hurricane area. Don't let her age fool you, she loves to play with her squeaky toys and her humans! She is a spunky little girl, gets along beautifully with other dogs and loves to be around people. She will make a wonderful companion dog to a very lucky adopter.

Carter

Carter is nothing if not patient. He came back to our rescue 5 months ago (his family divorced and returned him after 5 years) and is still looking for a forever home. He attends countless public events where people say how well-behaved he is (true), how handsome he is (also true), and what a good boy he is (very true!). At 8+ years old, he's a gentleman who won't chew your shoes or go potty on your rug. He just wants someone to love him. He knows basic commands (sit, down, shake, working on stay), makes friends with all people. He sleeps in his crate and even hangs out there during the day. He's a good passenger in the car.

If living with another dog, Carter would prefer that dog be smaller than he is. He would be equally happy to your one and only pooch (he's more interested in people than dogs). He will adore you as much as you adore him. And he truly deserves it. He's spectacular! Carter is not living with a cat but he does bark at one that passes by the house.

Piff (aka as Nellie in her foster home, is a super sweet 14 year old Chihuahua/Dachshund Mix. She is 10lbs of nothing but love. Piff is one of the Hurricane Harvey rescues from Texas. This Hurricane saved her and gave her a new lease on life, since the sanctuary she resided in for many years was flooded. So far Piff loves what New York has given her. A foster home where she loves to snuggle with her foster mom and get lots of belly rubs and car rides to see the outside world and she even got to enjoy NY apple picking with a bunch of K-9 friends . She likes sleep with her foster mom and now gets excited over it with jumping up on the side of the bed, but she will also happily sleep in a nice cozy dog bed. She gets along great with all the dogs and cats in her foster home. Piff is a very laid back easy going dog. She is partially blind, but that does not stop her from getting around. She does have dry eyes, which is easily maintained with eye meds. Piff would be a great addition to any home!

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!

Talulah

Hi, I’m Talulah - an absolutely gorgeous, approximately 1 year old Shiba Inu (?) mix who is 15 lbs of pure, total sweetness! I was rescued from the S Korean meat trade and had a rough start in life, so I tend to be very shy and timid with new people and new experiences. Once I feel safe with my person, I shower them with love and affection and want nothing more than to cuddle up for a nap together. I am housebroken when kept on a schedule and sleep quietly in my crate overnight. I love being outside in a quiet yard and playing inside with my toys. I have settled in beautifully to my foster home and enjoy my furry foster brothers but most of all I am learning how to just be a pet :). My forever family MUST be a female and adult only, extremely patient, quiet, predictable home that has previous shy dog experience and another friendly dog who will continue to show me the world is a safe place. I know that is a lot to ask for but I’m sure I will find my happily ever after with the right family for me :).

Rusty

Rusty is an easy going approximately 10-12 yr old, 10 lb senior saved from the Texas hurricane area that is just looking for love. He is low maintenance, housebroken, loves car rides, napping, leisurely strolls and barking at airplanes! He prefers cream cheese over peanut butter and will follow you around the house where ever you go. Rusty can be fearful with new people, but is fine with slow, proper introductions. No toddlers or small children for him. He gets along with his housemates, big and small, but would probably do best with no cat or a dog savvy cat as he likes to bark at them. Crate trained too, but this man prefers the coziness of your bed.

Scarlet

Scarlet is a beautiful Great Dane/Shepherd? mix. She is very sweet, friendly with people, housebroken and can be selective with other dogs. She is currently in a foster home with another male lab who she loves hanging out with and playing with. Scarlet is not suited for life with a cat.

He is doing nicely with his manners training which includes loose leash walking, sits, and crate training. An absolute must see in person because he will really grab your heart. At this time, Roscoe can go on buddy walks with other dogs but may be best as an only dog. He would not be a candidate for a home with a cat.

Alice

Alice is a 3 year old 70 lb, Ridgeback/Shepherd mix that is not only stunning in looks, but also beautiful in movement. Due to her strength and need for continued training, she would only be considered in a home with large dog experience and no children. That said, she does nicely with most dogs, but the dog must be strong enough to keep up with her agility and stamina. A must see for the right person and home.

Bunny

Hi, I'm Bunny - just watch me run with my hind legs under my body like a rabbit, hence my name! I am one of the sweetest, most special dogs you will ever meet. I'm an approximately 3 ½ yr old, 40 lb Lab/Hound mix, and my nose is always to the ground. I am house broken, crate trained, good with cats, children and love to romp with my furry foster siblings. I love running, playing and always having a great time! I was at my foster home 24 hrs and settled in like I lived there forever. I am very smart and learn the ropes quickly. If you give me my forever home, I will not disappoint you.

Sonny

Sonny is a sweet little Doxie/Chi ? mix approximately 12 years old and 10 lbs. He came along with many of the other dogs from Houston as a result of hurricane Harvey. He gets along well with his furry foster sister. As a senior dog, Sunny enjoys going outside but prefers to follow his foster family and snuggle up on the couch. Given Sonny's age and size, he would do best in a family who is often home and with older children.

Penny

Penny is a gorgeous 4 year old pure breed Siberian Husky. She loves to run and go for long vigorous walks. As a 65 pound sled dog, she needs a structured home that can give her plenty of exercise. She would prefer to be the only dog in the home and tends to be strong on a leash. Penny needs an adult only home where there will be lots of long runs, vigorous walks and/or hiking on a daily basis. She is learning how to walk properly on a leash and how to be a proper young lady in the home. Above all, daily exercise and loving human interaction is a must! A home that has had huskies and knows the breed - and loves outdoor exercise daily would be best.

Seg

Seg is a gorgeous Shepherd, about 7 years old and 74 lbs. He is very sweet and friendly. He is on the quiet side, gets along very well with other dogs and we think he would prefer a home with another friendly canine companion. He sleeps though the night in his foster mom's room, does not jump on furniture and is very respectful of all. Seg gets along with all types of four legged friends. This regal boy deserves a wonderful home! Click here to see a video of Seg trying agility.

Mandy

ADOPTION PENDING CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR THIS DOG

Mandy is a Poodle who is around 6+ years old and about 8 lbs. She came from South Korea and is super sweet and gentle. Mandy gets along with the other dogs in her foster home. She is very calm and likes to hang out on the sofa. She likes riding in the car and going on walks. She has been exposed to a lot of new and different things, so she is a little shy with these new experiences. Mandy would prefer a quiet home with time to adjust to new things.

Shirley

Shirley is an adorable pup, about a year old and 35 lbs. She is very sweet and on the shy side. She is adjusting nicely in her foster home and loves playing with her furry foster sibling. She is housebroken and sleeps quietly through the night. This sweet girl needs a calm, quiet home. For her to feel confident, another dog who close to her own size (no small dogs) is a MUST (this is non-negotiable). She cannot be an only dog. She cannot live in the city. She would not be good in a home with a cat.

Miso

ADOPTION PENDING CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR THIS DOG

Miso is a 2 year old, 7 lb little love. Although she is missing an eye she is never missing a beat!! She is calm and loves to cuddle but switches to a spunky little girl when it's time to play. She is definitely an alpha dog (wants to be the boss). Miso is housebroken and she sleeps through the night, though prefers to sleep in bed with her human. Miso must be leash walked - she cannot be let out in a fenced (physical or electric) yard. She is an escape artist and can squeeze through the fence and dig out. She would do best in a home with another dog, no cats, no small children.
