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 Marcus-Courtesy Listing...


Marcus is a handsome, happy, three and one half year old German Shepherd. He is housebroken, neutered and up to date on vaccines. Marcus is a happy pup, friendly toward people and other dogs.  He is respectful of his home...He is not a chewer and will not get on furniture.  Marcus is an energetic guy and needs lots of exercise.  He loves to run around, chase balls, go on long walks, and especially loves hiking. During his down time he is happy just hanging out with his family. As Marcus can be protective of his home, he will do best in a quiet, not too busy household, with adults and teens or older. If you are interested in this dog, please contact Liz at 914-262-3771.
