- How to Help
Our mission is to aid homeless, abandoned and neglected cats and dogs, to nurture them in the foster care of volunteers, to provide veterinary care and socialization, and to place them in permanent loving and responsible homes. Pet Rescue also works to decrease the population of homeless dogs and cats through its spay/neuter programs.
Allie is an adorable 1 year old Lab mix, she is a petite 28lbs. She is shy when first meeting new people but warms up fairly quickly. She enjoys going for walks and playing in the yard with other four legged friends.
Before writing us, please read our FAQ. We receive hundreds of emails a week, and most questions fall into one of these categories. Reading the FAQ and submitting your application is the most expedient way to adoption. Please remember we are mostly volunteers and handle all inquiries as best we can. We try to respond (when appropriate) within 24-48 hours.
Pet Rescue's facility in Harrison, NY provides shelter for many of our cats and dogs. In addition to a roof over their heads, we pay for heat, food, water, electricity. and general maintenance. While most of the work is done by dedicated volunteers, we have a small kennel staff to help care for the dogs and cats.
Our clinic provides vet care to our cats and dogs. General health assessments, medications, vaccinations, blood work, testing, spay/neuter procedures, and other necessary surgeries are all a part of the day- to-day routine. Additionally, we pay for specialist care, as needed, to maintain the health of our dogs and cats.
We took over a dilapidated facility which has required hundreds of thousands of dollars to restore to a usable condition. We continue to discover issues and restore the buildings to operable conditions. Our funding comes exclusively from donations from our adopters and friends.
We transport around 600 dogs from kill shelters and emergency situations to Pet Rescue each year. We also take in local cats and dogs who are in distressed situations.
We are lucky to have a wonderful group of people who foster our cats and dogs in their homes. We pay for all their vetting via the clinic and we provide them specialty food as needed.
We feed our cats and dogs over 2,200 cans of wet food and 1,600 pounds of dry food each year (numbers currently for cats only).
