Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

a Non-Profit Community Animal Service Organization which has been serving NYC and surrounding areas since 1988. 501 (c) Fed. I.D. # 11 - 3369273 Tax Exempt.
Muffin's is not a shelter.* We do not take in animals. The pet owner or rescuer must be able to hold on to the pet until a home is found. Muffin's has assisted pet owners and rescuers in finding homes for 8,500 pets including thousands of cats, dogs, puppies, kittens. Homes have also been found for ferrets, guinea pigs, rabbits, turtles, birds, hamsters, and iguanas. Many of these pets were going to a kill shelter or on the street.
We serve NYC, Westchester, Long Island and have re-homed pets in NJ and CT.

About Our Rescue Group:

Norm and Jude were inspired to create www.muffins.org
Muffin changed our lives forever!
On Dec. 8, 1987, a tiny 9lb, two year old Terrier mix Chihuahua, (a Yoda look-alike) was found shivering under the wheel of a car during a freezing snowstorm. This sad eyed dog was frightened and her little body trembled. She was all skin and bones. She had been abused and trusted no one.

Our Adoption Process:

Muffin's has a PET ADOPTION application listed on our web site www.muffins.org The form is filled out by prospective adopter and then it is forwarded to pet lister. Contact is made by the pet lister, and the pet is met by the interested pet owner. Sometimes the pet owner takes their pet to the new owners home. If all goes well, the pet is released into their new home. Muffins sends a packet of literature and collects the $25 adoption fee. Pictures are taken of the pet owner with their new pet. We have a lovely wall of fame display showing the happy adopters with their new pet companions.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
