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/

Now in the care of Rescue Ridge, Coby is looking to settle down and find a family to love him forever. Coby is one smart dog! He knows many basic commands and has proven to be a very quick learner. He walks nicely on a leash, is already housebroken and is such a good boy in the car. Quite playful, Coby really loves his ball! 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.

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. See, I was abandoned and I am very afraid of that happening again. I’m a very good dog; I walk nicely on a leash, go to the bathroom outside, sleep through the night and am good for my bath. When you go to pet me I remember something hurtful and will cower a little, but I’m learning that not all people are bad. 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. If you would like to meet me, please contact my friends at Rescue Ridge at 732-681-3450, I would really like to meet you.

HI, I'm Ginger, a loving, fun dog looking for a furever home. My owner had to surrender me to a high kill shelter because she could no longer care for me.

I know hand commands for sit and down and am eager to learn more. Even though I have lots of energy, I am ready to curl up next to you at a moment's notice. I am a super family dog so don't wait.

Eli is one of the newest additions to Rescue Ridge. This 10 month old cutie pie is currently residing in a fantastic foster home, with adults, children and other dogs (including another foster which you'll meet later this week). 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! ?

  • Chihuahua
  • Spayed/Neutered
Ella was a stray from north Jersey and was definitely sombody's beloved pet. She knows all about the sofa and loves to tuck herself behind the fluffiest pillow. Perhaps her owner died, or maybe the family moved and left her behind . She is very much in need of a loving person to call her own. She is a bit shy and barks a lot at strangers until they sit down and let her sniff them. Then she cuddles and snuggles her way into your heart. She weighs about 6 lbs and has little white ankle socks on. She is a very special little girl who is desperately hoping for a warm bed to share with a special person. Please apply to adopt this lovely girl at: www.RescueRidge.com

Hi Everyone, I am CINNIMO, or CINNI for short. I'm a gorgeous new addition to the Rescue Ridge crew. I am a 3 1/2 year old Lab Mix who defines cuteness and my big brown eyes are sure to melt your heart. I'd say that I am quite the catch, as in addition to my good looks, I am a good girl, too! I am great on leash and really enjoy walks and jogs with my human friends. I do have a fair amount of energy so I'd love to go to an active family that will include me in lots of adventures. Or perhaps you have another dog in your family. I am great with other dogs, too. I even made friends with a MinPin while I was still at the shelter. We were quite the pair, I tell ya. When you come visit with me you will see I'm the perfect size, not too big, not too small, just right . I am a pretty smart girl, too, because I know how to sit for treats! I'd love to find a permanent or foster home, so if you are in the market for a stellar gal to add to your family, contact Rescue Ridge at Rescueridge.com and email: rescueridgeshelter@gmail.com to set up a meet! Hope to see you soon, XOXO, CINNI HERE IS MY VIDEO LINK: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z7mHER3vNfk

his is a courtesy post, so please do not contact Rescue Ridge, but instead contact Njrescue1@yahoo.com and ask to meet Logan. My name is Logan. I am a gorgeous 40 pound Lab mix and am just 2 years young. I am a fun-loving kinda guy and am looking for a new family to call my own. Sadly, my whole world is being turned upside down. My family is moving and they aren’t taking me along. I am being displaced and right now, I have nowhere to go. I don’t have much time. I am still a happy boy, enjoying life. I love to play ball and I look forward to playing outside. I also love to swim! I do know some basic commands, but would flourish with a family that could spend some time with me brushing up on some leash manners. If you have the space in your heart and home for a fun-loving Lab, please e-mail Njrescue1@yahoo.com and ask to meet Logan. Logan is very active and has a high prey drive for squirrels. He will require a secure, fenced in backyard (preferably 6 feet). He will be up to date on vaccinations and neutered prior to adoption. I fell a little behind on my doctor visits but I will get my shots soon, so my new family won't have to worry about getting me to the vet for awhile! They will also have me neutered prior to adoption. I may need some extra cuddling over that when you get me! Disclaimer: This website is used as a medium for any animal in need of a home.

Health records are available. Their current Dad has him traveling now and these two are left alone a lot. They do have a dogie door and someone comes over to walk them as well during the day. Unfortunately, this is a new thing in his job and he is not there to take care of these guys and he feels its not fair to them to be left alone so much. It breaks his heart to have to rehome him but feels it's for the best. Even though they are together now it doesn't mean that they couldn't go to separate homes.

Kimsey has always been an indoor animal is in good health and up to date on her shots. She has a micro chip in case she gets lost. She would do well in a mature home as that is what she is used to. The only reason Kimsey has to find a new home is her owner passed away suddenly and his family can not care for her.

This is a courtesy post, so please do not contact Rescue Ridge, but instead contact Danielle_Benfatti@yahoo.com. Rudy is sweet, funny and loving 3 year old boy. He appears to be a pit bull mix and weighs approximately 65lbs. He was fostered and then adopted by his foster parents from Liberty Humane Society in Jersey City and has lived with them since he was 8-months old. Unfortunately this sweet boy is currently looking for a forever home since his adopted parents have gotten divorced and can no longer provide him with the love and care he so deserves. Rudy walks great on a leash with the easy-walk harness and is trained to run at a moderate pace. He is an excellent exercise partner. He has lived in the city and is used to walking on busy city blocks, but loves the park, hiking, beach and backyard. Rudy is an active dog, but is very calm and well-behaved indoors. He knows sit, down, roll-over, and stay. He absolutely loves to play fetch and also loves to swim in pools and lakes. He also plays water fetch which is his absolute favorite game. Rudy does really well at the vet and is motivated by treats. He also does not mind bath time as long as treats are involved. Rudy attends doggie daycare twice a week where he get’s along with other dogs his size. Rudy needs a home with no children under 13 since has not been tested with children, no cats and preferable the only dog in the household as he is dog-selective. He would do best with an experienced dog owner who would take the time to set boundaries, build a trusting relationship, work on command following and structure his daily routine. He is currently up to date on all shots, is microchipped, neutered and is very healthy. He is toilet and crate trained. Please consider making this beautiful boy a part of your family.

This adorable Shepherd Mix, whose name definitely does describe her, was rescued by her current caregiver so that she didn't have to be placed in a high-kill shelter. Bella is quite energetic and loves children. She is not at all food agressive and currently lives with a 2 year old girl! She's very gentle with her human foster sister; allowing to hug, touch all over, hand feed and basically just do whatever she wants to her! Bella loves to play outside and is a very affectionate dog. Her foster mother would love to keep her but she just isn't home enough to give her the proper exercise, love and attention she deserves. Bella does need a little training to not pull so much on their walks and not to jump on people to greet them. Bella just gets so excited!! She loves everyone! She can play fetch and really enjoys it. She will sit and give you her paw. She pulls when she’s walked and jumps on people out of excitement. She stays in the kitchen while the caregiver is at work. She currently will use her crate as a bathroom instead of a bed but if she's not home alone, Bella will go to the door to be let out. With proper training, Bella will be a wonderful dog and if the foster had the time and landlords permission, she would not be looking to rehome this sweetheart! Also, as far as her caregiver knows, Bella hasn't had any shots since she was 3 months old so she will definitely need a vet visit.

This one year old Terrier Mix was recently pulled from a local shelter, where he had been surrendered by his family. Kazer was not a fan of shelter life so we stepped in to help this boy in hopes of getting him back to homelife as soon as possible. Kazer is really a wonderful boy. He is extremely affectionate once he gets to know you, loving to plop his legs on your lap, soak up lots of pets and kisses and give lots of kisses in return. His previous owners said he is great with children and other dogs, but cats can't be in the picture for him. Kazer, although a big, strong boy, does walk well on leash with a harness on, and really enjoys getting out in the fresh air. He is highly food motivated (huge fan of hot dogs), so further training with him should be a breeze.

Hi Everyone - My name is MANDY and I'm the newest member of the Rescue Ridge Family. I'm about 2 1/2 years old - a leggy, beautiful gal. 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 and then we'll be able to retire that 'old soul' moniker. 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 am suuuuper food motivated so any sort of training we embark on will be that much easier. 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'd love it if you would get in touch with my people at rescueridgeshelter@gmail.com or via the application at rescueridge.com. Can't wait to meet you!

  • Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier

Hi Everyone, my name is RUDY and this is my story: I was found wandering the streets and wound up at a local shelter. I was petrified. So much that I was always hiding in the back of my kennel and no one would even notice me. Outside I was better, but I was still very afraid. So, Rescue Ridge pulled me and I got placed into a foster home, with the hopes of seeing the real me and building up my confidence. I've been here a little over a week now and this is more like it. I've got a team of dogs and a human here to help and they've been great. Not only am I conquering fears, I am having a blast. They've discovered lots of amazing things about me. For only being 5 months old, I am incredibly well behaved. I know sit, walk great on leash, don't jump on furniture or beds (I am perfectly content on a nice, comfy dog bed), don't jump up on people either. I'm crate and house-trained, too. I'm a gentle boy that enjoys snuggling, belly rubs, playing with other doggies and toys! I love toys! I'd say my best quality is something you can't actually see, but you'll definitely feel it and that is the LOVE that I give out. My foster mom says I melt her heart on a daily basis. That's quite the endorsement, I'd say. If you'd like to meet me, please contact Rescue Ridge (make sure you mention Rudy #2 or Black/White Rudy) at rescueridgeshelter@gmail.com or fill out an adoption app at rescueridge.com.

Say hello to our beautiful little girl, HAZEL! This 2-year-old pint sized Pocket Pittie with perky ears is the PERFECT blend of sweetness, silliness and smarts. She has the curious personality of a puppy and the smarts of an older dog. Not only is Hazel a world-class cuddler, she knows, “sit,” “paw” and “down.” She’s always game for a round of fetch, and if there’s a baby pool in sight, you’re in for a treat! Hazel will dive, roll and kick with the kind of grace that would make Mark Spitz proud. Hazel is an all around doll, always up for play of any kind and has been great around the kids she’s met so far. Sadly, adorable Hazel has experienced a lot of change in her life after far too much time in a shelter. This sweet ball of energy could use the stability of a loving, caring home. Hazel would love to be part of a family where she can be herself…part athlete…and part cuddle bug. Her ideal home would be one where she can run around like a whirling dervish for a while, than plunk down in your lap for some loving. Hazel likes a few select dogs, as her doggie social skills are immature. Oh, and did we mention Hazel is fantastic on a leash? And good thing, because there is nothing she likes more than walking outside taking in all the world has to offer. Hazel is a special girl you do not want to miss out on.

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.

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.

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.

Eli is one of the newest additions to Rescue Ridge. This 10 month old cutie pie is currently residing in a fantastic foster home, with adults, children and other dogs (including another foster which you'll meet later this week). 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 am a gorgeous 40 pound Lab mix and am just 2 years young. I am a fun-loving kinda guy and am looking for a new family to call my own. Sadly, my whole world is being turned upside down. My family is moving and they aren’t taking me along. I am being displaced and right now, I have nowhere to go. I don’t have much time. I am still a happy boy, enjoying life. I love to play ball and I look forward to playing outside. I also love to swim! I do know some basic commands, but would flourish with a family that could spend some time with me brushing up on some leash manners. If you have the space in your heart and home for a fun-loving Lab, please e-mail Njrescue1@yahoo.com and ask to meet Logan. Logan is very active and has a high prey drive for squirrels. He will require a secure, fenced in backyard (preferably 6 feet). He will be up to date on vaccinations and neutered prior to adoption. I fell a little behind on my doctor visits but I will get my shots soon, so my new family won't have to worry about getting me to the vet for awhile! They will also have me neutered prior to adoption. I may need some extra cuddling over that when you get me! Disclaimer: This website is used as a medium for any animal in need of a home.

Oreo is a male bulldog/beagle. He's been neutered and chipped by PetSmart. He is a lovable dog and has lived with children. When I got him my son was 4 now my son is 7, and they get along very well. He gets along with with big and small dogs. I feed him Simple Nourish dry food and Blue Buffalo wet cans. He loves his treats especially his bones. As far as a family pet goes he is outstanding. He loves giving attention and just being around the family; especially laying under your feet by the couch. I am certain any family would fall in love with Oreo.

This is a courtesy post, so please do not contact Rescue Ridge, but instead contact Danielle_Benfatti@yahoo.com. Rudy is sweet, funny and loving 3 year old boy. He appears to be a pit bull mix and weighs approximately 65lbs. He was fostered and then adopted by his foster parents from Liberty Humane Society in Jersey City and has lived with them since he was 8-months old. Unfortunately this sweet boy is currently looking for a forever home since his adopted parents have gotten divorced and can no longer provide him with the love and care he so deserves. Rudy walks great on a leash with the easy-walk harness and is trained to run at a moderate pace. He is an excellent exercise partner. He has lived in the city and is used to walking on busy city blocks, but loves the park, hiking, beach and backyard. Rudy is an active dog, but is very calm and well-behaved indoors. He knows sit, down, roll-over, and stay. He absolutely loves to play fetch and also loves to swim in pools and lakes. He also plays water fetch which is his absolute favorite game. Rudy does really well at the vet and is motivated by treats. He also does not mind bath time as long as treats are involved. Rudy attends doggie daycare twice a week where he get’s along with other dogs his size. Rudy needs a home with no children under 13 since has not been tested with children, no cats and preferable the only dog in the household as he is dog-selective. He would do best with an experienced dog owner who would take the time to set boundaries, build a trusting relationship, work on command following and structure his daily routine. He is currently up to date on all shots, is microchipped, neutered and is very healthy. He is toilet and crate trained. Please consider making this beautiful boy a part of your family.

This adorable Shepherd Mix, whose name definitely does describe her, was rescued by her current caregiver so that she didn't have to be placed in a high-kill shelter. Bella is quite energetic and loves children. She is not at all food agressive and currently lives with a 2 year old girl! She's very gentle with her human foster sister; allowing to hug, touch all over, hand feed and basically just do whatever she wants to her! Bella loves to play outside and is a very affectionate dog. Her foster mother would love to keep her but she just isn't home enough to give her the proper exercise, love and attention she deserves. Bella does need a little training to not pull so much on their walks and not to jump on people to greet them. Bella just gets so excited!! She loves everyone! She can play fetch and really enjoys it. She will sit and give you her paw. She pulls when she’s walked and jumps on people out of excitement. She stays in the kitchen while the caregiver is at work. She currently will use her crate as a bathroom instead of a bed but if she's not home alone, Bella will go to the door to be let out. With proper training, Bella will be a wonderful dog and if the foster had the time and landlords permission, she would not be looking to rehome this sweetheart! Also, as far as her caregiver knows, Bella hasn't had any shots since she was 3 months old so she will definitely need a vet visit.

We have a special boy to introduce you to, today. His name is KAZER and he is a new member of the Rescue Ridge Family. This one year old Terrier Mix was recently pulled from a local shelter, where he had been surrendered by his family. Kazer was not a fan of shelter life so we stepped in to help this boy in hopes of getting him back to homelife as soon as possible. Kazer is really a wonderful boy. He is extremely affectionate once he gets to know you, loving to plop his legs on your lap, soak up lots of pets and kisses and give lots of kisses in return. His previous owners said he is great with children and other dogs, but cats can't be in the picture for him. Kazer, although a big, strong boy, does walk well on leash with a harness on, and really enjoys getting out in the fresh air. He is highly food motivated (huge fan of hot dogs), so further training with him should be a breeze. If you are interested in Adopting him, please either email us at rescueridgeshelter@gmail.com or fill out an application at rescueridge.com.

Hi Everyone - My name is MANDY and I'm the newest member of the Rescue Ridge Family. I'm about 2 1/2 years old - a leggy, beautiful gal. 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 and then we'll be able to retire that 'old soul' moniker. 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 am suuuuper food motivated so any sort of training we embark on will be that much easier. 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'd love it if you would get in touch with my people at rescueridgeshelter@gmail.com or via the application at rescueridge.com. Can't wait to meet you!

Hi Everyone, my name is RUDY and this is my story: I was found wandering the streets and wound up at a local shelter. I was petrified. So much that I was always hiding in the back of my kennel and no one would even notice me. Outside I was better, but I was still very afraid. So, Rescue Ridge pulled me and I got placed into a foster home, with the hopes of seeing the real me and building up my confidence. I've been here a little over a week now and this is more like it. I've got a team of dogs and a human here to help and they've been great. Not only am I conquering fears, I am having a blast. They've discovered lots of amazing things about me. For only being 5 months old, I am incredibly well behaved. I know sit, walk great on leash, don't jump on furniture or beds (I am perfectly content on a nice, comfy dog bed), don't jump up on people either. I'm crate and house-trained, too. I'm a gentle boy that enjoys snuggling, belly rubs, playing with other doggies and toys! I love toys! I'd say my best quality is something you can't actually see, but you'll definitely feel it and that is the LOVE that I give out. My foster mom says I melt her heart on a daily basis. That's quite the endorsement, I'd say. If you'd like to meet me, please contact Rescue Ridge (make sure you mention Rudy #2 or Black/White Rudy) at rescueridgeshelter@gmail.com or fill out an adoption app at rescueridge.com.

Say hello to our beautiful little girl, HAZEL! This 2-year-old pint sized Pocket Pittie with perky ears is the PERFECT blend of sweetness, silliness and smarts. She has the curious personality of a puppy and the smarts of an older dog. Not only is Hazel a world-class cuddler, she knows, “sit,” “paw” and “down.” She’s always game for a round of fetch, and if there’s a baby pool in sight, you’re in for a treat! Hazel will dive, roll and kick with the kind of grace that would make Mark Spitz proud. Hazel is an all around doll, always up for play of any kind and has been great around the kids she’s met so far. Sadly, adorable Hazel has experienced a lot of change in her life after far too much time in a shelter. This sweet ball of energy could use the stability of a loving, caring home. Hazel would love to be part of a family where she can be herself…part athlete…and part cuddle bug. Her ideal home would be one where she can run around like a whirling dervish for a while, than plunk down in your lap for some loving. Hazel likes a few select dogs, as her doggie social skills are immature. Oh, and did we mention Hazel is fantastic on a leash? And good thing, because there is nothing she likes more than walking outside taking in all the world has to offer. Hazel is a special girl you do not want to miss out on.
