Patricia is a beautiful speckled 1-2 year old Cattle Dog mix. She adores running in the dog park, especially chasing thrown balls. She is good with people & other dogs & completely housebroken. True to her breed, she is a working dog & would love a job to do. She would probably be great in agility classes! Although she is good with other dogs, she would be best as an only dog and in a household without cats.

Thank you In loving memory of Gerald Loeb 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!

Wylie is an adorable little pup. He is around 12 lbs and 1 year old. This is one happy boy that will show you his happiness all the time. He is very smart and great with other dogs too. He loves to play with his toys and can keep himself busy for playing all alone or with you. He is good with other dogs too. He will run around and then jump in your lap and sleep like a rock. He can still be a little mouthy at times since he is a young boy.

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.

Sally is an adorable female chihuhua 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. She is totally housebroken. 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 will make a loyal, loving and very smart companion for life.

Lucy is a beautiful 8 yr old girl who will melt your heart. SHe is a lab mix and 35 lbs. She has the most soulful eyes. She is paralyzed due to a compressed disc in her back and subsequent operation. She gets around as if nothing is the matter with her wheels. Because she is paralyzed she cannot urinate on her own and you have to express her bladder every 4 hours. Also, due to the paralysis she does have chronic urinary tract infection and is currently on antibiotics. Lucy is anxious to please and would make a wonderful companion to a kind, compassionate loving person.


Jack is a wonderful, loving companion. Always anxious to please, he is house trained and knows basic commands. He would be happiest as the only pet in the house. Jack gets along with other dogs and we don't know about cats. He is a jagdterrier and has a very strong hunting instinct. He needs to run : so a fenced in dog park would be ideal or a large fenced back yard.. ( Running besides you on a bike will not work) Jack is not a city dog and would find the noise/traffic deafening and upsetting. Because of his strong personality, Jack would do best in a childless home or with children over 12. He is not a retriever and does not like to swim. Jack likes nothing better than snuggling on your lap and having his belly rubbed. He is a quirky 29 lb boy with lots of love to give. He is waiting patiently for the right people to adopt him.

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.

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.

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. 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.

Bo is the BEST. He likes dogs and all kinds of people. He's friendly, house trained and knows his basic commands. He walks well with an easy-walker harness. Bo came to Pet Rescue after his human mom passed away - she was a dedicated transport driver, literally saving thousands of dogs from euthanasia in the South. Many of those dogs came to Pet Rescue and we are committed to finding Bo the most perfect home. He's 8 years old, but he has the spirit of a young dog. In his foster home, he sleeps at night in a dog bed and is not crated when the people go out. He's living with two other Pet Rescue dogs - both a male and a female. And Bo is such a good sport, he lets the little 15 lb. dog jump on him all day. Bo is a big old mush-ball. If you want easy and lovable, Bo's your man.

Ryleigh is the sweetest, and most gentle lady. She is a 12 pound chihuahua around 8 years old. Ryleigh was 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. She is a really good leash walker and loves her walks, but overall she is a quiet dog that is not very high energy. She adapts easily to change and just goes with the flow. She is a real love!

Daymond is a beautiful one year old yellow lab mix. He is now about 45 pounds and could use a few more. He is a sweet and gentle boy living with other dogs and a cat in a very busy home. Daymond is housebroken, sleeps on his bed all night and is not a barker- he is a real couch potato. When not on his bed he enjoys exploring the back yard. He does love car rides and trips to the dog park. His tail is up and wagging when he runs around the park with the other dogs. Daymond is shy and tentative around new people but is coming out of his shell with his foster family. He would love to be part of a family who can shower him with the love and attention he deserves.

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

Blaine is a gorgeous 1 year old male Husky Mix. He loves to chew on his bone and play in the yard with his toys. He is eager to please and loves all humans he comes in contact with. He is a bit strong, so we recommend he go with older children.

Thank you Julie Rizzo for sponsoring my ticket to freedom!


Diesel is a handsome 1 year old male Boxer Mix. He is a good boy, but needs basic manners training. He is eager to please, but requires an experienced handler that can continue with his training. He is not a fan of other dogs, so he would prefer to be your one and only!

Ellie is a gorgeous, sweet 1 year old Lab/Hound Mix. She is 45 Lbs. She is housebroken and knows basic commands. This goofy girl is lively and playful and will make you smile. She is one of those happy go lucky girls. She is not great with some dogs and should be the only dog in the household with no young children. Since she still has a lot of puppy energy, she would be better off in an adult home. She rides well in the car, too.


Luke is a goofy pitbull mix, about a year old and 52 lbs. He has very cool, gorgeous bovine markings and a big smile to match his good natured, happy-go-lucky personality. He is easy on leash, likes to give kisses and is friendly with people and other dogs, he ignores cats. He is a smart boy and knows some commands like "sit". He is sure to put a smile on your face and will make a wonderful companion for a lucky someone!

Pharaoh is a great dog. He is about 2 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 when he became too ill to care for him any longer and love to find an active home that will be his forever home.

Kensy is a gorgeous Beagle mix, about 2 years old and weighs about 25 lbs. She is housebroken (and crate trained). Kensy is a bit timid, but once she warms up to you, she is a big coach potato, loves to run and play. She's very sweet and loves to cuddle up with her foster mom every chance she gets. Kensy is friendly with others dogs and loves to play with lots of toys. She is very active and needs a home with a fenced in yard - and another dog to play with would be great. She also rides well in the car.

Bradley is an adorable Pekinese mix, approximately 7 years old and about 15 lbs. He has been living in a foster home with 2 other dogs. He is blind and needs time to adjust to new people and environments. He gets scared easily by loud noises and as a defense mechanism, will growl and bark. Bradley prefers an adult only home and could benefit from another calm dog to follow. Bradley is waiting to start his new life in his forever home. Could it be you?


What a lover boy! He is so sweet and well behaved and so smart. At around 3 years and 14 lbs, this boy is perfect for just about any home. He is great with other dogs, but does not need a home with another dog. He is happy either way.

This adorable puppy is full of life and very curious. He is about 5 months old and 12 lbs. he is very lovable and cuddly, but also has the terrier side to him and is bouncy at times. He should go to a home without cats, since he is quite adamant about chasing them and barking at them. We would suggest a home with older children since he is still in the chewing stage of his life. He loves to have his people around and would need somebody to give him the attention he needs.


Brad is an adorable 35 lb, 1 year old male Terrier Mix. He is a good boy that is eager to please. He enjoys playing in the yard and loves playing with toys. He is working on his leash walking and housebreaking. What a cutie!

Gus is about 35 lbs and approximately 2 years old. We think he's a terrier mix, very sweet, really a good boy. He's house trained and gets along with other dogs. Gus is playful and will need someone that will exercise him.


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.
