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.beView all of our adoptable dogs on our website:  http://rescueridge.com/meet-our-dogs/

He enjoys playing fetch or can keep himself entertained for hours on end. He enjoys nice long walks. Although Coby can appear to be a bit timid at first, do not let that fool you. He warms up quickly and thoroughly enjoys the company of people. This gentle boy just wants to spend his time with his loved ones, snuggling up or just simply enjoying your mere presence. He is a rather mellow and quiet dog and is really eager to find his forever home. Please contact Rescue Ridge at 732-681-3450 and ask to meet Coby.

So if you already have fur babies, please don’t hesitate to call for Ginny. Our volunteers would be happy to do a formal, proper introduction. She would make an excellent companion for another pet in your home. Ginny knows her basic commands and is also housetrained. If you have room in your home and your heart for Ginny, please contact us.

Bentley has a heart murmur and will most likely need to be on medication. We think he's 7 years old. Could you be my hero? My name is Bently and I am searching for a place to call home.

I am very social and really enjoy the company of other dogs, in fact I love the dog park. Are you looking to add a member to your family? 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. I am a small dog, probably a Chihuahua mix, weigh about 8 pounds and I am about 4 yrs old.

**********THIS IS A COURTESY POST, RESCUE RIDGE IS HELPING TO REHOME THIS DOG AND HAS NO FIRSTHAND KNOWLEDGE OF ITS TEMPERMENT. INFORMATION BELOW IS BASED ON HIS CURRENT CAREGIVERS REPORT. ********************* If you are interested in adopting this pet, please contact Joan at 732-681-3450. This is Nina, She is half Pitbull and half pointer. She was born on December 11, 2011. She is very playful, but she is also very protective of her territory, but not to the point that she will hurt anyone. Well, at least that I know of... i haven't had any problems with her. I have had her for about 7 months... the previous owner gave her the rabies shot and another one. But I do not know exactly which one. She does her business outside, I usually take her out in the morning, in the afternoon when I come home from work, and also at night before I go to sleep. I really would not like to get rid of her, because I really do love my dog, but at this point I was left with no option then to try and find her a better place. Please let me know if someone is interested. Thank you Disclaimer: This website is used as a medium for any dog in need of a home. No information on this site is guaranteed.

Dani California is a gorgeous, spayed and completely house broken three year old female. She is loving, loyal and obedient. She has zero food aggression, can have free access to entire house without incident and can be quite a ham (see photos). Dani needs a new home where the setting is calmer. She has lived with and loved a small child her whole life but the unpredictable movements of children (running, jumping, dancing) make her extremely nervous. Her current home is very active with small children constantly around. It isn't the right fit for her. When anxious she cries, loses hair and can be jumpy creating a tough environment for all due to her size (70lbs). She is very loved, well cared for and her family is heart broken. But what is best for her is a calm home, with an experienced owner. Dani is a wonderful dog and will be a wonderful companion.

Lady is a 6 year old Beagle/Lab mix and is looking for a new home. She weighs about 35lbs and is fully grown. Her family loves her very much but can no longer care for her, so they are trying their hardest to find the BEST home she can have. Lady loves to hike, run, play, and would prefer a home with a fenced in backyard bc she loves adventures and exploring. Lady does well with other dogs her size, especially males and she's friendly to everyone she meets. Lady is scared of babies crying, so a home with older children is preferred. An active family would be great so she can run and play with you! She is up to date on all shots, is spayed and is also house broken. She loves her toys and the occasional bone. Lady will come with her toys, mesh crate, bowls, doggie bed, and the rest of her food. She is a GEM and would make an amazing addition to any active, on-the-go, family!

Micky Moo is an 8 lb superdog who was removed from his former home by the police as part of a cruelty case. He was named for the Micky Mouse silhouette on his back and his cow-like markings. He is fortunately young, about a year old and built like a tiny Olympian with all the strength and grace of a gymnast. He is gaining confidence daily and has started showing his joyful, loving, silly, playful side. His past has given him some unusual habits such as licking remote controls, iPhones, and bathroom cabinets when a person he likes is nearby. He is afraid of strangers and takes time to warm up. Once he begins to trust you he is a snugly boy who loves to cuddle under the covers and have his tummy rubbed. He was rescued with larger dogs. Not all of them survived. He needs a patient person with experience raising a dog who needs extra love and care at first. You will be rewarded for the rest of his life with a smart, loyal, loving pal, a one if a kind boy who will keep you laughing. Neutered, has all shots, housebroken, ok with some dogs, females esp. Micky M is best in household without too many people coming and going. Please apply to adopt Moo from RescueRidge.com He is in a foster home with other dogs in Hopewell, N.J.

Meryl WANTS to love you. She kinda loves you already but she is from a hoarder breeder and is still learning social skills. She wags her tail and lets us give her worm medicine and a bath yet she is still a bit shy. She is learning to use the Wee Wee pad though! Meryl was spayed recently and the vet said her uterus was the size of a golden retriever's from all the times she has been bred. Now she wants to be loved for the doggy she is, not the puppies she produces. She was in pretty sad shape when Pilots and Paws brought her to NJ. She has come a long way to find her forever person. She gets along with other dogs and is not snippy, just scared. Watching her grow into her secure self will be your daily reward. No kids as she is small at around 5 lbs. She is approximately 8 years old.

JP is an 1 year old Deaf Terrier mix pup that is part slapstick comedian, part cuddle bug. JP is currently sharing his foster home with 2 other dogs, an 8 year old Boxer and a 6 year old Terrier Mix. He spends his days playing with the 6 year old, and the evenings cuddling with the old man and his foster mom. JP is currently being trained to learn signs for all his basic commands. His first session went great and he is a natural. Eager to learn, he picked up sit, down, come, place and leave it in record time. He and his foster mom are practicing everyday so his family has a nice foundation. JP will need an active family that will keep him busy. A young dog that loves to play and that JP can learn the ways of the home would be wonderful! JP did pass his cat test when he was at the shelter, but he wants to play with them, so if you have cats, you should be experienced in introducing them. He is an amazing little boy, super adorable, a nice size (40lbs) and loves being part of a family. He can’t wait to find his forever home soon. Contact Rescue Ridge to set up a meet! .

Mastering stairs, going in and out of the house, crate training ... he's learned how to be a dog and a great one at that! Thanks to his foster family his trust in humans has been restored!

Peanut is a sweet, lovable boy that deserves a family that is willing to help him grow up into the wonderful dog we know he is capable of being.

This is Nina, She is half Pitbull and half pointer. She was born on December 11, 2011. She is very playful, but she is also very protective of her territory, but not to the point that she will hurt anyone. Well, at least that I know of... i haven't had any problems with her. I have had her for about 7 months... the previous owner gave her the rabies shot and another one. But I do not know exactly which one. She does her business outside, I usually take her out in the morning, in the afternoon when I come home from work, and also at night before I go to sleep. I really would not like to get rid of her, because I really do love my dog, but at this point I was left with no option then to try and find her a better place.

Dani California is a gorgeous, spayed and completely house broken three year old female. She is loving, loyal and obedient. She has zero food aggression, can have free access to entire house without incident and can be quite a ham (see photos). Dani needs a new home where the setting is calmer. She has lived with and loved a small child her whole life but the unpredictable movements of children (running, jumping, dancing) make her extremely nervous. Her current home is very active with small children constantly around. It isn't the right fit for her. When anxious she cries, loses hair and can be jumpy creating a tough environment for all due to her size (70lbs). She is very loved, well cared for and her family is heart broken. But what is best for her is a calm home, with an experienced owner. Dani is a wonderful dog and will be a wonderful companion.

Hey there it's Me, Dottie! They call me "the caterpillar" because I'm a chubby snuggly wiggler with a teeny mohawk on the back of my neck. I am unique. Are you? I would like to live with someone who has patience, love and understanding for a girl like me. I'm from a hoarder/breeder who used me so many times to make money I had hernias and never got enough to eat. I am making up for that now. Pilots and Paws saved me by bringing me to NJ for a new chance at a real life. I used to weigh 5 lbs but I don't get on the scale much anymore, I'm too busy running like the wind on my crooked little legs. I'm about 5 years old, affectionate once I know you and almost weewee pad trained. Come meet me at my foster mom's place. You can meet my sisters too. See you soon I hope! But please, no kids under 13. Please apply to adopt Dottie at: RescueRidge.com She is in a loving home with other foster dogs in Hopewell, N.J.

Micky Moo is an 8 lb superdog who was removed from his former home by the police as part of a cruelty case. He was named for the Micky Mouse silhouette on his back and his cow-like markings. He is fortunately young, about a year old and built like a tiny Olympian with all the strength and grace of a gymnast. He is gaining confidence daily and has started showing his joyful, loving, silly, playful side. His past has given him some unusual habits such as licking remote controls, iPhones, and bathroom cabinets when a person he likes is nearby. He is afraid of strangers and takes time to warm up. Once he begins to trust you he is a snugly boy who loves to cuddle under the covers and have his tummy rubbed. He was rescued with larger dogs. Not all of them survived. He needs a patient person with experience raising a dog who needs extra love and care at first. You will be rewarded for the rest of his life with a smart, loyal, loving pal, a one if a kind boy who will keep you laughing. Neutered, has all shots, housebroken, ok with some dogs, females esp. Micky M is best in household without too many people coming and going. Please apply to adopt Moo from RescueRidge.com He is in a foster home with other dogs in Hopewell, N.J.

Meryl was spayed recently and the vet said her uterus was the size of a golden retriever's from all the times she has been bred. Now she wants to be loved for the doggy she is, not the puppies she produces. She was in pretty sad shape when Pilots and Paws brought her to NJ. She has come a long way to find her forever person.

He spends his days playing with the 6 year old, and the evenings cuddling with the old man and his foster mom. JP is currently being trained to learn signs for all his basic commands. His first session went great and he is a natural. Eager to learn, he picked up sit, down, come, place and leave it in record time. He and his foster mom are practicing everyday so his family has a nice foundation. JP will need an active family that will keep him busy. A young dog that loves to play and that JP can learn the ways of the home would be wonderful! JP did pass his cat test when he was at the shelter, but he wants to play with them, so if you have cats, you should be experienced in introducing them. He is an amazing little boy, super adorable, a nice size (40lbs) and loves being part of a family. He can’t wait to find his forever home soon. Contact Rescue Ridge to set up a meet! .

Eli is one of the newest additions to Rescue Ridge.

Eli's past was filled with neglect and his experiences with people and home life left a lot to be desired. He didn't know how to live in a home, but in a short time, with the guidance and reassurance of his foster family (people and dogs), he's adjusted wonderfully. Mastering stairs, going in and out of the house, crate training ... he's learned how to be a dog and a great one at that! Thanks to his foster family his trust in humans has been restored! Now all Eli needs is a family all his own, especially if it includes a canine buddy. Make a date with Eli by contacting Rescue Ridge at rescueridgeshelter@gmail.com today! ?

I love to sniff and kiss her, as well as all the other kids I meet. I would do best as the only dog in your home, but I'll give you all the love and cuddles you need. I am a terrific watch dog, I will always let you know if anyone is our home. I am house broken and love to snooze on my big squishy bed. My current family loves me very much but can no longer give me what I need. Can you help? I can't wait to find my FURever home. Please come meet me!!! Call or email my mom to set it up!!

Macho Macho Man! Well, you may not want to be Macho Man, but you can certainly add a hunk of a boy named MACHO to your family! Macho is a low-riding ~1 year old, adult, child, dog and cat friendly, goofball who could be called the life of the party. He certainly can light up a room with his smile and friendly ways. He’s pretty well behaved for being a youngster. He walks well on leash and knows a command or two. He adores getting loved on, butt rubs would be his favorite, and he’ll wiggle away in appreciation. Macho also loves to give out kisses and shower you with affection! Macho would love to find a great family to love! Please contact Rescue Ridge at RescueRidge.com or email: rescueridgeshelter@gmail.com to meet him today. If you can’t adopt, Macho would love a foster home, too!

  • American Staffordshire Terrier, Pit Bull Terrier
Well, would you get a load of this little PEANUT!! Aptly named at the moment, of course, since he's only about 3 months old. This little guy was pulled from a local shelter and is now enjoying life on the outside in a loving foster home. He is learning the ropes from his human foster family and perhaps more importantly, from his canine foster family. He's being taught proper doggie behavior and is learning quickly, so he's a smart cookie. Peanut is a sweet, lovable boy that deserves a family that is willing to help him grow up into the wonderful dog we know he is capable of being. He'll need to get lots of exercise, go through obedience training and continue to be socialized to get him acclimated to everything that is wonderful in this world. If you'd like to set up a meet with our PEANUT, contact Rescue Ridge at rescueridge@gmail.com!

Just look at this stunning, very affectionate, people and dog friendly, year old, male, Pit Bull/ Labrador sweetheart! This angel was saved by Rescue Ridge just in time from a local, overcrowded N.J. shelter. Blue had been surrendered to that shelter because the landlord would not allow his owner to keep him. He walks nicely on a leash, goes potty outside, takes treats very nicely, knows "Sit" and loves to have his belly rubbed! He gives sweet kisses, too so if you want some then please apply to foster or adopt Blue from Rescue Ridge at: RescueRidge.com You can call Rescue Ridge at: 732-681-3450 or email: rescueridgeshelter@gmail.com VIDEO LINK FOR BLUE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4H-bYY6sJmk

  • Hound
Say hello to NIKO – he’s our gangly, goofy, exuberant, year old, youngster who is sure to put a big ole smile on your face when you’re in his presence. Niko is a large Hound Mix that’s around a year old. He would love a wonderful new family with a nice fenced-in-yard where he can run around all day long or one that is very active and will include him in lots of outdoor activities and adventures. Niko will play a little fetch with you, but he hasn’t quite mastered the return part yet . He knows how to sit nicely for a treat and walks well when on leash, too. And bonus, Niko is good with cats and other dogs, too… If you have an active lifestyle and/or family and want to add a handsome pup to your household, Niko is your man. Contact Rescue Ridge at RescueRidge.com, or email: rescueridgeshetler@gmail.com to schedule a time to meet him. Video link for Niko: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v7qoKxPaLTQ
