About Rescue City

Rescue City is a professional, foster-based dog rescue based in Brooklyn, New York. We conduct lifesaving rescue transports from open intake shelters that are unable to save a high percentage of animals. Thanks to our efforts, hundreds of dogs are saved every year.

As a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit, we mostly rely on tax-deductible donations to fund our lifesaving transport operations, veterinary costs, and support of our fosters. Every dog we care for is fully vetted and altered, microchipped, and vaccinated prior to adoption. We are proud that our organization rescues dogs of every breed, size, age, temperament, and medical condition.

Rescue City is tremendously appreciative of our community of loving fosters, dedicated volunteers, generous donors, and devoted adopters who help us do our incredibly important work. Our commitment to our dogs goes beyond the adoption process. Through our exceptional education and ongoing support network, we believe that, together we can positively change the face of dog ownership and empower a community of guardians. #ItTakesACity #RescueCity
