My story

JOHN JOHN is waiting patiently for months and months, to be someone’s forever companion .





This stunning German Shepherd Dog  was found as a stray and brought into the @nycacc where we rushed to get him out of the shelter. Now he has spent months in a foster home — patiently waiting to find a forever family of his own. John John is a velcro, loving, gentle and affectionate dog. He enjoys playing tug of war, fetch, loves his crate, is housebroken and is an excellent cuddler. He loves to act like a lap dog even though he’s 75 pounds. He is so loyal, bonds to people like glue and will go to the end of the world and back for his humans — his only vice is that he does not get along with other dogs. He is currently fostered in Connecticut, and loves having so much space to explore — he would absolutely thrive in any suburban environment and he is EXCELLENT WITH CHILDREN, making lots of friends with neighbors including a two year girl he’s extra gentle with! John John is about 8 years old. He is neutered and completed a dental in our care. He will fit perfectly into any home as long as there are no other dogs or cats in the household, and he would love a home that will take him on long walks around the neighborhood and spend ample time cuddling inside. 





His foster mom writes “John John is still as sweet as ever and a giant puppy.  He still loves attention and very vocal about it.  When he's happy or content, he'll let you know by making all sorts of noises almost akin to purring.  He loves being close to people and loves being physically touched, getting pets, doggy massages and belly rubs.  He especially loves being brushed and laying on his side and being pampered.  “ Apply to adopt John John at rescuecity.nyc/adopt. His adoption radius is beyond our usual NYC and surrounding states, but his potential adopters must come to New York for a meet and greet greet. 





We just know the perfect home is out there waiting for him too. — Not looking to adopt at this time? Please help us SHARE John John to help find his forever family!

Adoption application

Go meet their pets

The first step of the adoption process is to complete an adoption application in full at www.rescuecity.nyc. All of our dogs are in foster homes throughout the city. We do not have a physical location where we keep dogs.

More about this rescue

Rescue City is a no-kill, non-profit1 pet rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption organization. Our team of dedicated volunteers is based in Brooklyn, NY and serves the NYC metro and surrounding areas.

Our organization’s motto is: There’s a person for every dog, and there’s a dog for every person…it’s just a matter of time. This applies whether you are looking to adopt a pet, or would like to make a positive impact on the lives of animals. At Rescue City we believe it is our moral responsibility to defend the lives of abused, abandoned, and neglected animals.
We take on helpless stray and surrendered animals, as well as those at the top of the euthanasia list at local and international shelters. We place our rescues in nurturing foster homes while they rebuild their lives through physical and mental rehabilitation. Following a thorough – but hassle free – adoption process, our Rescues are placed in loving, responsible, and committed permanent homes. Every rescue is fully vetted and altered, micro-chipped, and vaccinated upon adoption. Our commitment to our rescues does not stop once the adoption paperwork is signed. We stress the importance of responsible pet ownership, and we educate our Fosters, Adopters, and community on what it means to be a good pet owner.
