Jax

Jax is a handsome Beagle mix, about 18 months old and 21 lbs. He is sweet and on the timid side. Unfortunately, his owner passed away and he and his friends Rosebud and Sweetness ended up homeless. They are a little reserved at first, so we think older children or adult only homes would be best. Jan gets along with cats and dogs!

Phoenix

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!!

Alice

Alice is a 3 year old 70 lbs, Shepherd mix that is not only stunning in looks, but also beautiful in movement. She is an intelligent girl that really enjoys learning, everything from obedience to tricks. If you like long hikes in the woods, running on the beach and other outdoor adventures Alice is your girl. Alice would love her very own fenced in back yard to stretch her long legs. Because Alice plays passionately and enthusiastically she would do best in a home with dogs close to her size. Due to her strength and need for continued training, she would only be considered in a home with large dog experience and no children. She is housetrained.

Gigi

Gigi is a sweet and energetic approximately year old Labrador mix, with the extra adorable trait of one ear that always stays up and one ear down. She loves to play with her toys, especially the squeaky ones, and gather any shoes she can find from around the house to add to her collection (no chewing though). She’s sleeps quietly through the night in her crate and is excellent in the car. She gets along well with other dogs and is good with children. She is working hard on her house training and her basic commands. Gigi would do well with a fenced yard where she can really get a chance to run and play.

Harvey

This handsome fella is a love bug! Just look at that adorable face. Harvey is a Shar-Pei mix and is about 70 lbs. and about 10 months old. He lost his home in Texas because of the hurricane and interestingly enough he was named Harvey before the storm. Since his relocation to New York Harvey has made so many new friends and shares his foster home with a brother and a sister. He should go to a home with children old enough to handle a big dog. Harvey loves learning because he is a foodie. He has learned sit, down, wait and come. Totally house broken, crate trained, and lets you sleep all night. He loves to run in the yard and play soccer and be with his people and he will give you all the love that you allow. He loves to go on walks and is a very good car rider. Of all the loves Harvey loves life.

Champ

Baxter

Baxter is a Corgi mix, about 2 years old and 25 lbs. He takes a while to warm up to new people (just like dating!) once he does he is affectionate and cuddly. Baxter is a very smart boy who loves to learn and is a total foodie! He has many obedience skills and would love to go to a home where he can further his education. Baxter is crate trained and will "go to his place" when strangers arrive! He loves going for long walks and being with his people. He would be best in a predictable and quiet home. An all adult home would be the perfect place for him. Baxter would rather be the one and only furry friend in a home.

Piff

Piff (aka as Nellie in her foster home, is a super sweet 8-10 year old Dachshund Mix. She is 10lbs of nothing but love. Piff is one of the Hurricane Harvey rescues from Texas. This Hurricane saved her and gave her a new lease on life. So far Piff loves what New York has given her. A foster home where she loves to snuggle with her foster mom and get lots of belly rubs and car rides to see the outside world. 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 being treated with a good prognosis from a recent visit to the eye specialiat. Piff would be a great addition to any home!

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 :).

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!

Charlie needs structure to keep his ego in check - his new owners must be firmly committed to following the rules and training which have made him a wonderful companion in his foster home. Charlie is suited for an adult-only home - no kids.

Hi Everyone! I am Nova, a lab mix weighing about 40 pounds and approximately 2 years old. I am fully housebroken and I get along with dogs, cats and older children! I really enjoy when my foster mom's granddaughter comes over to play with me. My foster mom sure does spoil me but she is also teaching me how to take treats gently and learn my boundaries. While I love being here, I am ready to find a furever home of my own with a fenced yard and a fur brother or sister to play with me.
