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 Bitty-Courtesy Listing...

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

Allow me to introduce you to (Itty) Bitty. Rescued at 8 weeks old, Bitty jumped into my arms for a ride to safety. Cat, dog, kid and horse friendly Bitty is a sweet, outgoing, and friendly pup. With a squeaky toy in her mouth, her whole body wags! Bitty is all in for love and affection; with her favorite being belly rubs. At night, she flops in her crate, belly up for a rub before bedtime. She is a sweet, submissive and loving little lady. Bitty is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and housebroken.
Bitty and her brother Bowser are being fostered with a professional dog trainer who is teaching her obedience commands. During a recent visit to the beach, Bitty was game for affection from all strangers and climbed into the lap of a woman in a beach chair for a snooze.
If you want a puppy that will make you smile and laugh everyday, then this rough and tumble, adventurous little girl is for you! She is located on the island of St Croix, USVI and has a ticket to fly stateside Feb 3. Is there a family willing to give this Island Castaway a home? If you are interested in this dog contact: or call 914-565-1512.
