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.

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.

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. Serious inquires only please. Please contact Danielle_Benfatti@yahoo.com. Disclaimer: This website is used as a medium for any animal in need of a home. No information on this site is guaranteed.

Hello everyone! My name is Mandy! I'm about 2 1/2 years old - a leggy, beautiful gal. I am a Boxer 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 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 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 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.com 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?

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, then 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. Make sure you fill out an app athttp://rescueridge.com/ and send an email to rescueridgeshetler@gmail.com to set up a meet with this little dynamo.

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.

Beautiful BROWNIE is new to the Rescue Ridge crew 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).

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.

This beautiful, 3 yr. old, spayed, female, Chihuahua has transformed from a frightened, actually petrified little girl in a small, overcrowded, New Jersey shelter, to a loving, sweet, playful, affectionate, dog friendly sweetheart. Ella is still shy when she first meets you but warms up quickly and loves attention! She is smart, good on a leash, gets along well with the other small dogs in her foster home, and loves to sit on your lap and snuggle. Ella is a very special, loyal girl who truly wants a home of her own and is wondering where or where can it be? Ella is wee pad trained, housebroken, and best in an adult home or a home with older children. Please apply to adopt this beautiful, sensitive, sweet girl who promises to be a wonderful, loyal companion.

Hi Everyone, I am CINNIMO, or CINNI for short. I'm a gorgeous new addition to the Rescue Ridge crew. I am a 3.7 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. 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 new video link: http://youtu.be/JSP5vyaivnc Here is another video of me, Cinni: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z7mHER3vNfk

This is a courtesy post, so Rescue Ridge has no first hand knowledge. Information is given by the current caregiver.

She walks well on a leash, goes potty outside and uses wee-wee pads when the weather calls for it as like any Beagle, she is a princess! 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. She is a wonderful dog and deserves a special, caring home that will understand her grieving and give her the love in her final years that she gave her current owner in his.

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.

Hello everyone! My name is Mandy! I'm about 2 1/2 years old - a leggy, beautiful gal. I am a Boxer 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 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 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 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.com 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?

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, then 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. Make sure you fill out an app athttp://rescueridge.com/ and send an email to rescueridgeshetler@gmail.com to set up a meet with this little dynamo.

Beautiful BROWNIE is new to the Rescue Ridge crew 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.com or fill out an application at rescueridge.com to schedule a meet with Brownie.
