Sammy

Sammy is a sweet boy looking for the perfect home. He is about 2 years old, 80 lb, Mastiff/Pyrenees mix with long legs and dreamy dark eyes. Sammy is a love bug who enjoys being with his people. He loves to take long naps in his crate where he feels very safe away from noise and confusion. At some point in Sammy's life he suffered an injury that has left his back right leg weaker than his other 3 but that doesn't prevent him from running in the backyard and enjoying short walks. He takes direction well and is eager to please. This boy is a fast learner and has already learned, sit, paw and stay. He's house, crate and leash trained. Sammy can be a bit protective of his home and needs a handler who will work with him to help him with this behavior. He would do best in a home without children and would need an introduction to other dogs, cats unknown. Sammy would make a great companion to a experienced dog owner looking for a best friend.

She is quite a snuggler and enjoys hanging out with her person on the couch or helping with the laundry (she watches as you work)! She enjoys long walks with her people and keeps her kennel clean, so we are pretty sure she is housebroken. She would love a fenced yard to play and explore. Jenny loves her humans however, she prefers to be an only dog. Jenny has been working with a trainer on getting more comfortable around other dogs but she will need to be your one and only in the home. She is also not suited for city/apartment life and would do best in the suburbs.

Franklin is a good boy. He is about 1 year old and 45lbs, appears to be a hound/lab mix. He is very energetic and playful. He is learning leash manners and potty training. He has lots of energy, so should go to a home where they can help him expend his energy at a dog park or with exercise.

She comes running when called, does not jump up, totally housebroken, sleeps thru the night and waits in her crate until fed. She loves the water and goes in the pool to cool off after a fun run. She would do best in a household of older children and adults. She takes a little time to get use to people, but in no time flat she would be your perfect family pet.

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!

Eli is a very special dog who is looking for a very special home. He was adopted from us in 2008 and approx 2 years ago, he suddenly went blind.

Eli is very, very sweet and in good health otherwise. He is not a barker, seems fine with other dogs, sleeps well at night, enjoys the company of humans and is housebroken too. He will need a kind and understanding home that will help guide him around until he is familiar with his surroundings. Can you open up your heart and home?

Missy

ADOPTION PENDING CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR THIS DOG

Missy is a gorgeous boxer mix, just over a year old and about 40 pounds. This sensitive girl takes her time warming up to new situations. She is super smart and trains easily, especially when the reward is a treat or an ice cube. She is house and crate trained and gets along well with other dogs. Missy would prefer dogs with proper social etiquette and should be adopted to a home with another dog. She needs a steady hand that will challenge her and at the same time reassure her that she is okay. She is sweet around kids, but would do best living in a home without small children (teenagers and up) because she gets a little rambunctious while playing and forgets her size.

Cammie

Cammie is a beautiful 1 year old, 25lb shepherd/cattle dog mix. She is a very nice girl. She loves other dogs and is doing her best to make friends with all 4 legged friends she comes across.
