Sonny

Hi I’m Sonny, an approximately 12 yr old Chi mix weighing in at a hefty 10 lbs! I was rescued from Texas when the shelter I had been living in was flooded due to Hurricane Harvey. I adore my foster family, especially my foster sister Maggie (a golden retriever), but I would truly love to find my forever home before the New Year. Although I am a bit older, I can jump up on the couch, and prance around the house like a youngster. I am pretty low maintenance, and really just like to hang out, and snuggle with my foster family. I can be a little rough around the edges when first meeting new dogs because I get scared, especially when they come right up to my face. I am working really hard on not doing that anymore, because I believe you can teach an old dog new tricks! I am housebroken when kept on a schedule, and my favorite place to sleep is cuddled on a dog bed in my foster’s mom room. Due to my size and my age, I think I would be happiest in a home with someone who’s often home during the day.

Ella

Ella is a wonderful wire haired beagle/terrier mix. She does shed. She is about 6 years old and 25 pounds. She can be shy at first but will warm up quickly. Ella is more relaxed with another dog as company and we would like to place her in a home with another dog. She is a real snuggler and is very well behaved. She sleeps in her crate at night with the door open and has impeccable manners. She is a sweet, slightly shy dog who will win your heart.

Phoenix is a gorgeous lab mix! His favorite things to do are hiking, running, playing with the other dogs in his foster home and then cuddling up for a nap. He is very smart and enjoys training, especially with treats. Phoenix weighs about 55 pounds, is house and crate trained and gets along well with other dogs when off leash. He is a shy boy and has a difficult time developing trust with new people. Phoenix needs a home that is active and will provide him with plenty of exercise each day along with a patient family who has experience with dogs. He would do best in a home with no children. If you are looking for a loving and loyal companion to spend your days with, he is your guy!!

Red

Red is a fantastic, approximately 55 lb, 7 years young Collie/Shepherd (?) mix with the cutest standup ears and white socks on each paw. His age may be 7 but there are so many amazing traits a senior dog possesses. 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. Red will play with his toys, nap in the sun or in his crate and patiently wait for you to come home to him. He will even be your home security system and let anyone who comes to your door know that he is on the job! (Peace of mind all around – DONE!) 3) When you get home Red greets you with a wagging tail and lots of kisses. He loves to go for a walk (great on the leash) and some play time. He even knows lots of commands – sit, stay, paw, down. Pretty impressive, right? (Playful and smart – DONE!). The only thing he asks for is to be your one and only furry companion. No other dogs or cats please as he wants you all to himself :). As you can see, Red is a must-see boy who would make a wonderful addition to a special family with older children.

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 :).

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 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!
