The Dog and Human Connection

Research continues to prove that dogs can be used to improve a wide range of conditions, from depression and anxiety, to cancer, Alzheimer’s, and autoimmune diseases. When humans interact with dogs the brain releases oxytocin, which triggers feelings of heightened happiness, and decreased stress.

While our mission is “Saving the lives of dogs in need by providing exceptional education and support for their adopters”, we’re part of NYC our community too. Dogs in the workplace not only reduce stress, but they also help increase productivity, improve morale and motivate employees! Previously Rescue City has visited several corporate companies to promote Stress Awareness Month, Adopt A Dog Month, and more! All donation fees for hosting a Puppy Therapaw event are tax-deductible.

Beyond the health consequences of COVID, we witnessed our community be ravaged by severe depression and other mental health challenges. According to the Mayor’s Office of Community Mental Health, 1 in 5 New Yorkers experience mental illness every year.

How Puppy Therapaw Helps:

  • Boosts Morale
  • Increases Productivity
  • Reduces Stress
  • Helps Puppies Socialize
  • Builds Rescue Awareness

Boost Employee Morale

Projects and deadlines often inhibit productivity and cause stress. Puppies in the workplace help break the monotonous work routine and help aid a positive and collaborative office culture.

Puppy Socialization

Projects and deadlines often inhibit productivity and cause stress. Puppies in the workplace help break the monotonous work routine and help aid a positive and collaborative office culture.

Where Do Our Dogs Come From?

Most of our dogs come from overcrowded rural shelters in KY,NC, SC and GA where they are atrisk of euthanasia. We also save dogs from the NYC ACC, other local shelters and take in strays found by the public.

Dog Health/Safety

All Rescue City dogs are vetted in our care and receive age appropriate vaccines. We do our best to ensure the dogs who will be in attendance are in the best of health and spirits. Rescue City safely transports dogs to/from the office and are always on hand to keep a watchful eye on the puppies!
