Adopt or Foster a Dog

Pet Rescue is dedicated to providing cats and dogs with a second chance to find loving and safe homes.
Dogs currently available for adoption are featured below. New animals are added as they become available.
You can help! Please share their profiles, because every adoption makes room for another deserving pet.

Please be sure to check the status of the dog you may be interested in adopting.  The status of a particular dog will be one of the following:

  • Adoptable - Dog has not yet been adopted out to a family although there may be applications that are still in the process of being evaluated.  In addition, following approval the applicant will meet the dog with their family to make sure it is a good fit.
  • Adoption Pending - Approved applicant has scheduled a meet and greet with the dog and an adoption seems likely.
  • Adopted- Dog has been adopted but will continue to remain our website for a short period of time following the actual adoption.

Due to the extremely high number of applications we have been receiving, the review process will take anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks.

A little About ZZ Dante-Courtesy Listing...

This is a Courtesy Listing and has no affiliation with Petrescue.  Please contact the owner listed below directly.

Dante, which in Latin means "everlasting," will be the loyal dog you've been serching for...because his love for you, in turn, will be just that, everlasting.  This handsome 10 year old, 20 lb Jack Russell Terrier came to Connecticut from Puerto Rico after his owner tragically passed away.  He is currently staying with a family friend as he awaits his new furever home.  Like most Jack Russell Terriers, this guy loves to explore and play.  Even at 10 years old, he enjoys a leisurely walk around the neighborhood, romp in the yard, or drive through town.  Dante is a big fan of toys and will proudly stroll around with one in his mouth.  As demonstrated with his past owner, he's devoted to his person and enjoys being next to you.  Listening to calming music is his favorite thing as he soaks in all the cuddles and pets you have to offer.  With a curious, affectionate, and playful personality, Dante will make a wonderful companion. Losing his best friend was very traumatic for Dante so he needs someone who is going to be patient with him as he builds trust with you.  His ideal home would be one with adults only.  Finding an adopter that understands decompression, has a fenced yard, and can put in the time to dedicate to training Dante would be very beneficial.  JRT breed experience is also highly preferred.  Lets's make his next chapter in life his best one yet! Dante's adoption fee has been WAIVED- we just want to find him a loving furever homr.  If you are interested in this cute little guy, please complete the application at For questions, email info@happilyfureverafter,org
