Adopt a Dog

Rescue Ridge is a ‘last-chance’ shelter. Staffed primarily through the efforts and donations of volunteers, we find homes for animals that other shelters and people have given up on. Through the kindness of various boarding kennels and foster families, rescued animals are cared for until they  find that final family to love them.View all of our adoptable animals on Petfinder here.  
  Check out a video of some of our amazing dogs and cats who have been helped through Rescue Ridge.  We could not do it without our wonderful adopters, contributors, and volunteers/fosters.  Many thanks to all of YOU!   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s4an_2Difko&feature=youtu.be  View all of our adoptable dogs on our website:  http://rescueridge.com/meet-our-dogs/

ROCKY GREAT DANE/ MASTIFF/ MALE ADULT/ CHILD/ DOG/ CAT FRIENDLY/ HOUSEBROKEN ROCKY Could be a horse…could be a giraffe…it’s Rocky!!!...an anything but ordinary extra large dog. If you like SUPER TALL dogs with gigantic hearts, you must meet this sweet and silly boy. Though Rocky came to us a Mastiff, he actually looks more like a Great Dane with his slender build and mile-long, gangly legs. Due to a move, poor, sweet Rocky is in search of a foster or permanent home. At a young 5-years-old, affectionate Rocky LOVES other dogs and children, and even lived with a cat when he was a puppy. He knows some commands, and is truly a gentle giant. Rocky is extremely affectionate, and loves nothing more than good ear and tummy rub. He is also very playful, and is a sight to behold prancing around like a horse with toys in his mouth. Rocky can be a little nervous around strangers until his people show him it’s OK. Then he’ll sidle up in a hot minute for petting and play. Rocky was kept separated from the family in a laundry room for long periods of time, so we believe once he’s allowed to really feel part of his new family, this nervousness will quickly disappear. If large dogs hold a special place in your heart, contact Rescue Ridge in central N.J. today to meet Rocky! Apply at: RescueRidge.com and email: rescueridgeshelter@gmail.com for a meet and greet.

  • Labrador Retriever
Meet Toby! He is one of the cutest, most playful, adult, child and dog friendly pups who is looking for his forever home in central New Jersey! Toby is a very lucky boy indeed. You see, Toby was surrendered to a local, overcrowded, New Jersey shelter by his family because they had no time for him. He lived with adults, children, and a Chihuahua and got along well with all. Toby was crated several hours a day and barely went for walks and the family realized they just could not give Toby what he needed. He is housebroken and crate trained. Toby is your typical, active, playful, 6 month old, Labrador mix. He loves to run, gives sweet kisses, takes toys and treats gently and is in a loving foster home with small children. Although Toby gets along well with children, he is a bouncy puppy and needs supervision as not to knock down the little ones accidentally. We suggest a home with slightly older children to avoid this issue and to give Toby a chance to have fun and be the terrific puppy that he is! Check out Toby in his video where he plays fetch, shows off a nice “Sit”, takes treats gently, and give sweet hugs and kisses, too! Here's the video link: https://youtu.be/2UgnujKDKTI If we have convinced you that Toby is simply adorable and a terrific family dog, then please apply to adopt Toby through Rescue Ridge at: RescueRidge.com and email: rescueridgeshelter@gmail.com for a meet and greet.

"I'm the King of the World!", well in my own mind, at least. But I'll do what it takes to get you to believe it, as well. My name is ROCCO and I am an 11 year old Papillon. I was abandoned by my previous owner and am looking for a family that won't put me through that again. I'm currently in a foster home and my foster momma has learned some of my tricks that I got away with in my previous home. I try to get what I want (food, mostly) with Jedi-mind tricks and occasionally, hypnosis. But she's no match for me - she takes me for a walk or lets me outside instead. Don't tell her, but I like that just as much. You can see me hanging out in my foster home in my own video - https://youtu.be/_imeUp1__TM. She'll also tell ya that I am a delightful boy and I would be a terrific pal for a retired person or someone looking for a faithful companion. I tolerate other animals as long as they realize that I'm top pup. I'd love to be meeting my forever family soon, so please contact Rescue Ridge by email - rescueridgeshelter@gmail.com or apply directly at rescueridge.com. See ya soon, Rocco

After earning your trust, he is very affectionate, wanting to wrap his big paws around you for a hug and attention. He is good on leash with a harness or gentle leader but could use some refinement to make walk time enjoyable for everyone. He is dog friendly and loves spending time romping around our playyard with his Rescue Ridge canine friends.

I would be very grateful to the wonderful person who adopts me and keeps me forever. Do you have room in your heart and home for me? I’m looking for a family who has a doggie companion for me so that we can keep each other company and will help build my confidence.

Hello everyone! My name is Mandy! I'm about 4 1/2 years old - a leggy, beautiful gal. I am a Boxer/Terrier Mix. I've been told that I am old soul, but that's not the real me. I have an amazing heart and am just waiting for a family to open their heart and home to me. So why should you Adopt Me, you ask well, I am a calm gal and I enjoy creature comforts (warm beds, sofas, etc), I know "Sit" and "Paw", am housebroken, super easy on the leash and am forever grateful for every act of kindness shown to me. I could use a bit of training, and mostly that would be working up my confidence, helping my star shine a little brighter. I don't give my heart away easily or quickly. If you will be patient with me and allow me to trust and get to know you, then you will see how loving, loyal, and affectionate I really am. I've been kind of indifferent around other dogs - perhaps I just haven't met 'the one' yet, so if you have another dog, we can all meet! I am OK around dogs but. most likely, I prefer not to live with them. I'd love it if you would get in touch with my people at rescueridgeshelter@gmail.c om or via the application at rescueridge.com. Can't wait to meet you! I am in central New Jersey in a kennel and would much prefer a nice warm bed to snuggle in. Do ya have one for me? Please watch my video and fall in love.

This is a courtesy post, so please do not contact Rescue Ridge, but instead contact EMD5056@aol.com and call: 917-833-7322. Meet Alesha! This poor girl has had some hard luck. She was adopted through a local New Jersey shelter by a loving family Sadly, the family has fallen on very hard times and can no longer keep her. Alesha lived with adults, children, and a cat and got along great with everyone. Alesha wants to be your only dog but cats are fine. She is a loving, five year old, spayed, vaccinated, gentle, Staffordshire Terrier. Alesha is housebroken; knows her commands; loves to go for walks; play fetch; is good in the car; takes toys, treats and food gently, and has a moderately high energy level. She needs an active home that will keep her in a structured environment. Alesha has separation anxiety and needs to have a clear routine and an active lifestyle in order to feel calmer. She would love a home where someone is home a lot, and wouldn't it be great if her family or person loves to jog, walk or hike regularly? Alesha promises to be a fabulous, loyal companion. Please give her a chance to show you. Alesha is being professionally trained at Wilford Dog Training Academy, Mays Landing, New Jersey to help her overcome her separation anxiety. We need a committed adopter asap because after her training is completed, she has nowhere to go. If you are interested in adopting Alesha, please email: EMD5056@aol.com and call: 917-833-7322 if you would like to meet Alesha.

We are thrilled to have the beautiful BROWNIE in the Rescue Ridge family and we asked her fabulous foster mom to tell us a bit about her. She said that it is tough to put into words how awesome she is but we think she did a great job! "Brownie is an all around awesome dog. For starters she is fully potty trained and hardly barks. She is an eight year old, medium-sized mixed breed pup. She is the perfect dog to either nap the day away with or go on a long walk around town. Although she may have a white face she is still very spunky and active. She would be the perfect dog for someone who would like a dog that requires much less work than a puppy would. No accidents, crying, or home-destroying. We have a two year old boxer that she gets along great with! She is patient with her and excellent at sharing. She is crated when we are not home and walks right in willingly. She is also a great snuggler and a well adjusted, loving girl." We think Brownie sounds like a perfect addition to any home (one without cats, though). So don't make haste, send an email to rescueridgeshelter@gmail.c om or fill out an application at rescueridge.com to schedule a meet with Brownie. Brownie also has her own Facebook page - go like it - Bring Brownie Home
