Our adoption range is 90 miles from Larchmont, NY and includes New York, Connecticut and New Jersey.

About Our Rescue Group:

Pet Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue organization founded in 1982 by volunteer workers who met at a "no-kill" animal shelter. Dismayed at the terrible living conditions of the animals there, they left to establish a rescue group to properly care for cats and dogs in need, and find them safe and loving homes.

Pet Rescue is not a formal shelter. It is a small group of volunteers that fosters dogs and cats until they are adopted. Some animals are fostered by group members and outside volunteers, while other animals are housed at local boarding facilities. The animals come from various places. Some come from owners who are no longer able to care for them. Others are taken from shelters, yet still others (many others) come from the streets. Those rescued from the streets often arrive sick or injured, and are subsequently treated by veterinarians. We have great success finding homes for puppies and kittens as well as older animals and those with special needs (such as blind and handicapped cats and dogs). We pride ourselves on finding the best match between people and pets. We average about 600 adoptions per year!

We are always in need of donations to help us continue our mission - and we could not survive without our wonderful volunteers. We are always in need of more foster homes. We invite you to explore our website to learn more about us! http://www.ny-petrescue.org

Come Meet our Pets:

Pet Rescue is not a formal shelter. We are a small group of volunteers that fosters dogs and cats until they are adopted. We show our dogs and cats by appointment and at our almost weekly adoption events where we bring our cats and dogs to local stores for showings. Please see our calendar for upcoming events: http://www.ny-petrescue.org/events.php

Our Adoption Process:

To adopt a cat, please email us at petrescueny@aol.com or call 914-834-6955. To adoption a dog, please fill out an adoption application from our website: http://www.ny-petrescue.org. Please note that you must be at least 23 years old, live within 90 miles from Larchmont, NY and be ready to adopt in the short term (less than a week). The adoption donation for a puppy/dog is $250-$450 and for kitten/cat is $65-$175 (high amounts for pure breeds). If the puppy or kitten is too young to be neutered, we require a spay/neuter deposit of $35 which is refundable upon receipt of proof from your vet. All adoption donations are tax deductible. Our pets are examined by a veterinarian, spayed and neutered if age appropriate, vaccinated, dewormed, receive flea/tick treatment and microchipped. We are all volunteers and do our best to respond quickly. Our review process may happen quickly (within two days) or may take up to two weeks - email is our preferred means of communication.

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
