A volunteer writes: Richie has such an endearing and worried little face. He is so patient in his kennel, waiting for his turn to go for a walk. He has the greatest chocolate color, beautiful golden eyes and the most delicious pout. He is so gorgeous and healthy looking in his flawless coat. Richie is excellent on the leash and might be housetrained. He is a young boy who meets in a nice way with the other dogs we met on our walk. He can sit on command and poses for picture taking. Richie shows his tender side as we sit on the bench. He is very much a lap dog and a kisser. One can see that he is still very young at 11 months of age. He just behaved like a gentle and needy puppy. Richie is at the Manhattan Care Center. What a great companion he will be, given a chance to meet you.
He was saved from death row at NYCACC and is in urgent need of a foster/adopter now!

Rescue Group Info...
We are a small, individual, private rescue group dedicated to giving unwanted dogs and cats a second chance. Most of the animals we rescue are strays and or owner surrenders to high kill city shelters. Many of them have been pulled off “death row”. We are very passionate about what we do, we love and care for these animals unconditionally. Our goal is to place our homeless rescues in permanent loving homes as their former owners have already abandoned them at least once before.
Adoption process includes adoption application, phone interview and home visit. Vet references are checked!
We do not have a physical shelter, we place our rescues in foster homes or boarding facilities where they are socialized and nurtured back to health before we place them in their forever home. If you are interested in adopting a friend, kindly look at our available pet on this site.
Adoption/Foster Application must be completed online via the link below.
Home visit is required along with Vet references. Our full list of fees have been listed on the adoption application. Our dogs come fully vetted and have to be spayed/neutered prior to adoption.
Our rescue has a network of volunteers that cover most of NY and the tri-state area. We rescue dogs and cats from "Death Row" at the local shelters and provide them with a Second Chance in life.
