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.

Buttons

Buttons is a 7 year old female chihuahua. She is a bundle of love, super sweet, never barks and very easy. Buttons is looking for her happily ever after. Her ideal home would be with someone that is home most the day and looking for a travel companion. Due to her small size we do not think she should go to a home with small children. Buttons weighs in at about 3.5 lb.

She loves to play with other dogs and puppies!! She is currently working on her manners training and making some progress. At this time, she would be best with a family with experience working with high energy dogs and older children. But so smart and trying very hard to get her energy under control!

Winston

Winston is a handsome Lab mix, about 3 years old and 48 lbs. He is very sweet and friendly. His white tipped tail moves super fast when he's excited to see you. If you let him, he will be your lap dog. His loving eyes really just say it all. He walks well on a leash and loves to take car rides. He is an all-star pooch. He is great with most dogs and especially great with kids.

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!

Keleah

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.

Scout

Scout if a wonderful 10 years young spaniel mix with the cutest brown eye patch and little stand up ears. His age may say 10 but there are so many amazing traits a 10 year old can bring to your home. 1. He is completely housebroken. He has never had an accident in his foster home and even goes to the door and barks to let you know he needs to go out. (Great because there is no need to go through the housebreaking process - DONE!). 2. You can leave for work and know that your house will be in perfect condition when you come home. Scout will play with his toys, nap in the sun and patiently wait for you to come back to him. He will even play home security and let anyone who comes to your door know that he is on the job! (Peace of mind - DONE!). 3. When you get home Scout loves nothing more than a good walk (he's great on the leash) and a little fetch time. If you ask him to get his ball, he knows to get it and bring it to you for some exercise. Pretty impressive, right! (Playful and smart - DONE!). 4. He's been trained with the basic commands of sit, down, and stay. He also will not get on the furniture or beds. (Yes, we've enticed him on one couch to snuggle but he will not climb on any other piece...sooo...training already mastered - DONE!). 5. Scout puts himself to bed at night and sleeps until he hears you moving about. (Restful sleep - DONE!). 6. Master snuggler. He loves to put his head in your lap and settle down for a good, long belly rub (loving and sweet - DONE!). His only little bug-a-boo is he'd like to be your one and only. No other dogs or cats please as he wants you all to himself. As you can see, Scout is a very special boy who is extremely easy. He is truly a gem!

TJ

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.

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 is a super sweet dog with his humans and will make a wonderful companion. He could live with a cat.
Thank you Anna Lazare for sponsoring my ticket to freedom!

Miso

Miso is a 2 year old 7 lb little love. She was rescued from Korea and is one of the cutest little dogs I've ever met. Get ready to get stopped at all times when you're out with her. Everyone falls in love. Although she is missing an eye she is never missing a beat!! She is calm and loves to cuddle but switches right over to a spunky little girl when its time to play. As small as she is she is definitely an alpha dog. She wants to be the boss and her foster fur brother doesn't mind a bit, in fact he just adores her. Miso is housebroken when kept on a schedule and she sleeps through the night. Miso prefers to sleep in bed with her human. Miso must go to a home where her person will leash walk her. She is a little bit of an escape artist and loves to squeeze her little body through the fence and will even dig out a bit. She would do best in a home with another dog, no cats and no small children.

Molly

Molly is an adorable little terrier mix pup, approximately 8 months old and weighing about 15 lbs. She is very sweet but shy when meeting new people. She is adjusting well to her new foster home and really loves to be with her furry foster siblings. Molly would love a forever home with another dog or two to play with each day. Presently, because of her shyness, it would be best that she is in a home with older children.

Harper

Harper is a handsome Husky/Basenji (?) mix, about a year old and the perfect size at 30 lbs. He is adorable, very sweet, very affectionate, friendly and smart -- and housebroken too. He loves going to the dog park daily for a romp and run - he tends to be on the submissive side with other dogs. He loves nature trails too. He loves to travel in the car and is very socialized with people of all ages as well as other dogs. He would do well in an active household and would make an all-around excellent family companion. He is also seemingly good with cats!

Red

Red is a very handsome Collie mix, about 7 years of age and 38 lbs. He is a dog 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. He is looking for a calm, quiet home where he can be the only dog and with dog savvy humans. Click here to see a video of Red.

Laverne

Hi my name is Laverne and I want to know what happened to my tail? I am an adorable pup, about 8 months old and 38 lbs. I’ve adjusted beautifully in my foster home in such a short time. I am very well behaved, gentle, calm, but most of all I am sweet. I am housebroken, sleep though the night and only chew on my dog toys. I live with 3 other house mates and would rather not be the only pup. I enjoy meeting other dogs, going on walks and romps at the dog park. I am also good with cats. The best place for me is in a home that doesn’t have real small children. They might try and pull my tail, oh yea, I don’t have a tail. Won’t you come and meet me. You can see I am a beauty, with a personality to match.

Praline

Praline is a 2-year-old lab/beagle mix appx 30-35 lbs. She needs a secure fenced yard and another pup to pal around with. First the person that is willing to rescue Praline must work slowly and with predictability. She loves to go on long walks and will stand there waiting for you to put her harness on. She sleeps thru the night without a peep, house broken, crate trained, not a big barker and will not eat you out of house and home. She loves to run and play. She would do best in a home with no really small children. When she first came to us 10 months ago, she was afraid of all humans. With Pet Rescue staff in her corner for the first 9 months she is able to go to a foster home and thrive. She has come a long way BABY. She still has a ways to go, but needs that special someone who understands shy dogs and willing to take a chance on her. Look at the pictures and you will see that she will make herself right at home with THE CAT and Laverne another foster pup.

Chad

Chad is an adorable beagle mix pup, about 5 months old and 35lbs. He is extremely sweet and loves to play with toys and other dogs! He is learning to walk nicely on a leash and knows sit, down, paw, leave it, drop it, and other neat tricks! He likes to be a little bossy at times so he would be best in a household with OLDER children and a DOG SAVVY person. We are looking for a home with ANOTHER DOG as Chad thrives with dogs that are confident and can make sure that Chad keeps his young puppy-like behavior in check. A real handsome little man.

Sunshine

Sunshine is a stunningly beautiful approximate 10 month old, 20 lb mixed breed dog (Shiba Inu?) that was rescued from the Korean dog meat trade. She came to us very shy, having had very little human contact. She has been settling in very well to her foster home, follows her furry foster sister everywhere and loves to play with her. Sunshine is learning to walk on a leash and is housebroken. She is slowly coming out of her shell and learning how to be a pet. Sunshine is so sweet but very timid, so her adopter needs to have shy dog experience and be patient to earn her trust. Her forever home MUST have older children, be calm and predictable, have a fenced in yard and another friendly dog.

Polka

This Polka dot lady is just beautiful and very playful. She is approximately 1 1/2 yrs old and 40 lbs. She is friendly and very sweet with humans and is working long and hard on her manners training. Her favorite game in the yard is fetch! She is a super star with crate training too!! Polka would be best with a family with dog experience so that she can continue with her manners training. Although she walks with other dogs, it is recommended that she is an only dog.

Seg

Seg is gorgeous Shepherd, about 6-7 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. This regal boy deserves a wonderful home!

Lucky

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.

Roscoe

Roscoe is an adorable dog appx. 4 years old and 42 lbs. who loves to be with people and go on nice long walks. 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.
