Pet Rescue Happenings

  • Effective immediately, Pet Rescue headquarters will be closed to the public until further notice because of the current health crisis.  Safety for our volunteers, staff, fosters and adopters is our primary concern during this time. The facility will still be minimally staffed with those caring for our animals.  Please note the following changes:
    1.  Adoptions will continue but by appointment only
    2.  The clinic will be closed for routine business and will handle emergencies only
    3.  Intake of animals will be generally restricted during this time
    We thank you for your understanding and support during this national emergency.

Cats of the Week

This one year old (as of 3/1/20) boy is calm and lovable. He purrs like a machine and is always on the lookout for attention. This sweet boy will definitely capture your heart.

Max is such a handsome petite boy, still shy around people but melts like butter as soon as a feline friend walks into the room.

We try to respond (when appropriate) within 24-48 hours.

Applicants must:

  • Pay $350-$450 to adopt their dog/puppy and $100-$200 for their cat/kitten

With Your Donations, We Provide



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).
