Adopt a Pet Today – Welcome to Rescue City!
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.
Even if you are not ready to adopt a pet, you can still make a difference.
Donate. Foster. Volunteer.
If you are not ready to adopt a pet but share our passion for bettering lives, we welcome you to support our cause as part of our support team. We are always looking for fosters who can open their homes to temporarily provide shelter and TLC for rescues in a safe, loving environment until they are placed in permanent homes. We are always in need of volunteers for a variety of tasks from transporting our animals and distributing supplies to coordinating events, writing, taking photos and more. Whatever your talents or skill sets, you can put use saving lives with Rescue City.
