Penny Was Rescued ....Forgotten.....Adopted...And Then....RETURNED!

Poor Penny has lost all faith in humans. She was pulled from a high kill shelter by a rescue, who then allowed her to sit in boarding and forgot all about her. Road to Home Rescue Support stepped up and found her a forever home. Her family was originally so enamored by her, that they called, emailed, and texted the group every day, as well as called the kennel and visited her often.

After the family was approved, they assured the group that they would provide Penny with every opportunity to do well and that she would never want for anything.

But after a week, Penny was dropped back off at the kennel. The family gave her no time to adjust to a new home, even though the rescue offered to send a trainer. This poor soul has no idea what she did wrong and why she is no longer sleeping in bed with her humans, playing with her canine companion, or sitting behind bars. She has lost weight, her mind, and the will to find a family who will love her. Penny is great with other dogs, cats, and people!

This sweet girl has not been given the chance to thrive in an environment filled with love, attention, structure, and routine. We know that if she is given the chance, she will spend the rest of her days showing you how grateful she is for your compassion, dedication, love, and for opening your heart and home to her. Penny has been sitting in boarding for months and is counting on us to give her the chance to be the dog and companion everyone would hope for.

Transport is available to an approved home in the northeast.

If you are interested in fostering or adopting this very deserving girl, please contact us at

- Located in White Plains, NY
- Approximately 2 years old
- Great with other dogs and cats
- Good with children, but would do best with children 12 and older due to her excitement level.

About Road to Home Rescue Support - Long Island, NY

About Our Rescue Group...

Road to Home was started to be able to focus on animals in need and to provide support to local rescues. After years of working in shelters and with rescues, we decided starting our own rescue was the best way to do what we do best! We are a 100 percent non-profit and 100 percent of the money we raise goes towards animals in need. Our 5013c is pending. Here’s what we will focus on:

-Providing guidance and support for re-homing an animal.
-Providing medical attention, training, spay/neuter, and food/supplies to a homeless animal.
-Pulling an animal from a euthanasia list or from an unsafe situation and placing them in a foster or permanent home.
-Working with rescues and shelters to facilitate adoptions by doing home checks, adoption applications, and networking to find foster or permanent homes for animals in need.
-Working with rescues and shelters to coordinate adoption events, food drives, and fundraisers.
-Raising money through a Chip-In to help specific dogs with training, medical needs, and adoption.
-Raising funds that can be allocated to specific needs of other rescues and shelters (including medical expenses, training expenses, food, and transport) as well as pledging money to animals in jeopardy of euthanasia.
