My story

Rhino is 8 yrs. old. He is a stunning, athletic, brindle, Staffordshire Terrier/ Boxer mix. This poor boy lived outside on a heavy chain for the first five years of his life with little shelter or love. His owner brought him to a local NJ shelter and Rescue Ridge stepped up to save him. The volunteers at Rescue Ridge gained his love and trust. Rescue Ridge has also helped Rhino with professional training. Rhino is an incredible dog. He is most loyal and loving and highly intelligent. Rhino needs an experienced owner. Rhino needs a quiet adult home with no traffic of people coming and going. He is housebroken and has no toy, treat, or food issues. He will gladly cuddle with you and loves structure. He loves a routine. He looks forward to his walks and is excellent on leash. Rhino loves car rides and will be your best co-pilot. He knows his basic commands and listens very well. Rhino is best as your only pet in the home even though he has some canine friends at the rescue and even had a canine girlfriend. She found her forever home. Where is his? If you are the type of person whose heart goes out to the most in need and will provide structure, then Rhino will truly be your best companion. Please apply to adopt Rhino at rescueridge.com No inquiries, please without an application.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

Just contact us at rescueridgeshelter@gmail.com, or call us at 732-681-3450, and we will be happy to provide you with an adoption application and, upon review of personal reference checks, vet checks, and possibly home visits, you may be chosen as a permanent home for that special companion. Please note that filling out an application does NOT automatically approve anyone for a specific adoption. We want to assure that the companion and adoptive family are each going to benefit from the adoption, and that it is as permanent an adoption as possible. We ask for help through donations to help cover the costs associated with keeping the companions up-to-date on vaccinations and spay/neuter programs. We request a donation of $100 for cats, and $200 - $400 for dogs, depending on the specific rescue. We are a tax-exempt organization so that any donation you make to Rescue Ridge is tax deductible, and all costs go directly to all of the animals we rescue.

More about this rescue

Rescue Ridge is a 'last-chance' rescue. Staffed 100% through the efforts and donations of volunteers, we find homes for animals that other shelters and people have given up on. Through the kindness of various boarding kennels and foster families, rescued animals are cared for until they find that final family to love them. Rescue Ridge began by rescuing healthy, beautiful, animals that were slated to be euthanized through no fault of their own. We felt it was unfair, that because their 'humans' had no more use for them, their days were numbered. We have tried to give each and every one of these companions a new lease on life. We rescued dogs, cats, horses and any other animal that we were able to help with our limited resources. And since we have limited space, we are always searching for those willing to help foster these wonderful creatures. We are always happy to provide information on options available to anyone needing to re-home their pet for whatever reason. It is our belief that education regarding pet ownership and its responsibilities is the best hope these companions have. You will have unending rewards when you give a second chance to one of these wonderful friends. They truly are the champions of giving unconditional love. VOLUNTEER: Volunteer dog walkers needed to walk our dogs. We also need volunteers to socialize our dogs. Must love dogs. Training will be provided. Our facility is located in Freehold, NJ. If you have a few hours a month to volunteer, please contact us at rescueridgeshelter@gmail.com. IF YOU'RE HAVING BEHAVIORAL ISSUES WITH YOUR DOG: We recommend our professional trainer at BullysBehaven.com. DONATE: If you are donating though our PayPal please put in the "instructions to the merchant" which program you are donating toward. Any amount, larger or small, is much appreciated. Please consider sponsoring one of our animals waiting for their forever homes. You can also donate to one of our rescue programs. Pulling for the Pits sponsorship program (to help Pit Bulls in need of a home) and Kitty for the Cats sponsorship program (So we can pull cats and kittens from local shelters and help local people in need of rehoming their cats or kittens.). You can also donate to our Medical Donation programs to help us keep our rescue animals healthy. Please sign up for Rescue Ridge’s newsletter!!
