”I had the pleasure of fostering six wonderful pups. Rescue City supplied me with everything the pups needed. It makes my heart full to know they have two wonderful furever families. Can’t wait to meet my next two this weekend. If you can please foster/adopt it is the best feeling knowing you saved a life.Kara Simmons
”We just adopted our sweet dog, Hudson from Rescue City...The whole process was wonderful and we are so happy with our boy. He is filling a space in our heart since losing Sunflower. Stella has been a TREMENDOUS asset while we adjust to new puppy life. Rescue City is thorough, kind, and considerate. We couldn’t be luckier or more appreciative !!Senator Jessica Scarcella-Spanton
”THANK YOU RESCUE CITY! For everything you do. We were able to join the foster program and it was an amazing experience. Great communication, super organized. We decided we were ready to adopt and joined the foster to adopt program — absolutely fell in love with our pup, we are so forever grateful for the experience with Rescue City! Dogs are angels and I am so happy this organization exists in NY.Nichole Garcia
”We had a wonderful experience adopting Ace. The transition was smooth and easy and Stella was incredibly helpful! Ace is a great edition to our family and it wouldn't be possible without Rescue City, thank you Rescue City for giving us the greatest gift!Eve Frudakis
”I love Rescue City! We had our first foster here in this organization. The process is very smooth. They provided everything. Foster team and medical team are always very helpful. Thank you Stella for always respond to our needs. We will miss Fresno but we know you placed him to a very lovely family.Christine Lajato
”We loved working with Rescue City to adopt our first dog! They gave us so many resources and really made us feel supported/part of their community. The work they do to give their dogs a forever home is amazing and we were happy to be a part of it! 🙂Kristina Vangeli
”We had the best experience adopting our new pup, Dwayne "the dog" Johnson, through Rescue City!
The application process was thorough and efficient; it was a quick turnaround from applying to welcoming Dwayne home. Dwayne's personality was described perfectly, it truly felt like we already knew him by the time we met. Stella and Cassie are absolute angels, you can feel how much they love these pups and want them to be matched with the perfect home for them. They provide you with all of the information you could ever need and have an informational call once your pup is home; I can only imagine how valuable that would be for folks that might not have as much experience with dogs!
We'll definitely be fostering with Rescue City in the future and can't thank them enough for our sweet guy!Kailey Wobrock
”We are experienced dog owners and have rescued before but this was the most amazing ‘Rescue’ ever… we adopted a 10 week old pup. We were thoroughly vetted and when we got him he had had a lot of his shots. You can see his foster home had started to train him The two hour orientation from Stella was so informative she even followed up the next day to answer questions. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to adopt.Rowena Nedvin
”This group is so committed to placing these rescue dogs into homes that fit their personalities so that they don't get thrown back into a shelter. We absolutely love Jameson who is now called Scooter!! He fits right into our family. From the first time that we met him we knew we had to have him. If you truly want to rescue a dog, I would Highly recommend Rescue City!Colleen White
”We just adopted our big boy from Rescue City yesterday and we couldn’t have had a better experience! They even had our dog delivered to our home. When we got him we had a very thorough phone call which helped answer any questions we may have had including training tips. It couldn’t have been a smoother process. I would highly recommend adopting from Rescue City!Gina Giannotti
