Nessa

Nessa is an adorable Shepherd/Hound mix pup, 6 months old and around 25 lbs. She is very sweet, just a little shy. Once she gets to know you, she opens up and her personality shines. She will stay on the small side, even when full grown.

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?

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.

Ginny

Ginny is an absolute love. She is gentle, playful and snuggly. She loves the other dogs in her foster home and the many children and adults who come to visit. She shares her toys and her treats. Ginny sleeps through the night on her bed with her sister Gemma. She is learning to walk on a leash. Ginny is about 6 months old and about 20 pounds. She has a beautiful red coat and the sweetest face. She is a very smart little girl waiting for her forever home.

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!

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.

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.

Kensy

Ok, we have new puppies that do not know how to walk on a leash. Someone grab Kensy and let’s teach them how to walk. So-n-So is inexperienced in playing with other dogs so let’s put him/her in a yard with Kensy. I am having a really bad day, let me take Kensy in the office with me because I know she will snuggle and give me unconditional love.

Kensy is our long-term dog at the kennel. Why is she here so long? She is so shy she does not do well at “Meet and Greets”. If someone is willing to give her the time to warm up to him or her and snuggle, they have found their “diamond in the rough”. Kensy needs a home to rescue her from the kennel life. Yes she saves so many of our pets that struggle with kennel life; but Kensy should have a home of her own. Given time, she will be the most perfect pet. She needs to be with a calm, pet-filled household. If you think you are that family, Kensy will meet you if you have the patience and time to let her warm up to you.

Kensy is a gorgeous Beagle mix, about 2 years old and weighs about 25 lbs. She is housebroken (and crate trained), a big couch potato, loves to run and play with other dogs, very sweet, loves to cuddle, is friendly with cats and also rides well in the car.
Thank you In honor of Jason's 11th birthday for sponsoring my ticket to freedom!

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.

Fergie

Fergie is a playful, happy girl who wags her tail all day long. She loves people and other dogs. She's always up for a good time and is first to play and last to quit. She will case a ball, but doesn't see why she should return it (hey, if you wanted it, why did you throw it??). She appears house trained. She's as beautiful as she is fun. Fergie would enjoy trips to the dog park as well as hikes and walks. She sits quietly in the car for rides. She gently takes treats from your hand. She's pretty much the whole perfect poochie package. Fergie is around 1 year old and possibly an Australian Shepherd/Collie mix. You have to see her to believe her!

Thank you Lauren Phillips for sponsoring my ticket to freedom!

Dulce

This little beauty is a Shepherd mix. Her name is Dulce. She is about 8-9 weeks old. She is one of the seven puppies whose name begins with D. Like her siblings, she gives off a lot of energy when it comes time to play. She is very friendly and loves to be held and cuddled by anyone who comes to visit. She is learning to go on the wee-wee pads and is getting pretty good at it. Dulce and her siblings all get along well. They all cuddle up together and sleep through the night. Anyone who adopts little Dulce will have a loyal companion forever.

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!

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.
