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/

This handsome young Pit mix is Coby. He is just 4 years old and is already in search of a new home. Sadly, he was surrendered by his family and was rescued from the shelter at which he was abandoned.

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.

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.

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! ?

Jersey is an all around easy going gal… A few things to note about our gal: she’s housebroken (SCORE!); don’t be fooled by her rolly-polly body – our girl loves to wrestle, jump around after toys and is active, for several long minutes - ha! She loves to play with her squeaky toys; she enjoys a good game of fetch; enjoys boating adventures; she loves to go for walks and might trot a bit too :)! Jersey knows how to get in and out of the car and she’s a great co/pilot. She also knows how to do the stairs. Jersey will sit for cookies – currently working on giving “paw” and she also knows the command “down”. She listens well, especially to “no” – which is a good thing! She would make a great addition to ANY family based on what her current foster family says!

Jaeger was pulled from a local shelter where he was surrendered when his owners could no longer care for him. We know we will be able to find this sweet, sensitive boy a great new home. Jaeger got to spend a few days with one of our awesome volunteers and we learned lots of great things about him. He is housebroken, loves his people and will attach to them quickly. He loves going for walks and is an absolute dream on the leash. He loves the beach, car rides, playing with other dogs and being part of a family. He's hoping that he gets to be part of a family again real soon! Contact Rescue Ridge at rescueridgeshelter@gmail.com to set up a meet with him today! ?

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 rescueridgeshelter@gmail.com to set up a meet! Hope to see you soon, XOXO, CINNI

Are you looking for a great gal to add to your family? One that is 100% FUN and easy going? Well look no further, we have the dog for you. Her name is CLEO and she's one amazing pup. This ~ 1 1/2 year old Lab Mix may not like to smile for the camera, but you'll see that she is a happy girl that loves to see you smile. It's hard not to smile when you look at her - she's got short legs and big floppy ears and just has the most beautiful shiny black coat. Cleo really loves other dogs and she'd love to have a doggie sibling to pal around with. She is great in the car and can't wait to go for lots of road trips with her new family. Cleo also knows some of her basic commands and once she gets outside she quickly takes care of her business and then gets down to enjoying the outdoors and being a dog. Don't miss out on your chance to adopt this wonderful girl. Contact Rescue Ridge at rescueridgeshelter@gmail.com or via http://www.rescueridge.com today and set up a meet!

I love to play ball and I look forward to playing outside. I love to swim and I enjoy the company of other dogs. I am also housebroken. I am a great boy with much to offer. If you have the space in your heart and home for a fun-loving Lab, please call Linda at 732-492-6920 and ask to meet Logan.

Good Evening Everyone, my name is LAFFY and I am new to the Rescue Ridge Family! Aren't I a cutie?? I am a 15 month old Terrier Mix with good looks, a fantastic disposition, and if I do say so myself, a great catch! I was recently pulled from a local shelter and am currently residing in a temporary foster home, which I love!! My foster family is pretty cool, it's made up of humans, canines, and felines. I pay no mind to the kitties and my foster family feels I may have been taught a lesson at one time by those feisty felines. I am great with other dogs and up for play whenever they are. I would love to find a permanent home where there is another dog for me to pal around with. So, obviously, I love to play, as I am still a young chap, but I adore snuggle time with my humans, too. I am a very affectionate boy, and I will sit on your lap and give you kiss after kiss if you let me. I really think you'll enjoy all the loving I have to give. I also know some of my basic commands and am house and crate trained. Like I said earlier, I am a great catch! So let's make set a date to meet, okay?

Hi, I'm Boo, a healthy, 2 yr. old Basenji mix. Although I'm southern raised, I am loving the northeast and really would like to find a loving family to take me in. My owner in Texas could no longer take care of me and I found myself in a NJ foster home with 8 other dogs and 4 cats - that's right 12 foster siblings! I don't particularly care for the cats, but I do enjoy playing with the female dogs! No funny stuff, though! I also like to be around kids - maybe 9 yrs old or older. I find that I'm a lap dog in a medium sized body. I just love to snuggle up with my people and give kisses and get pettings! I'm just waiting to meet you so we can start a life together. Call, call, call....now! Please contact Rescue Ridge at 732 681 3450 and ask to meet this great dog! You can also email us atrescueridgeshelter@gmail.com or visit us at www.rescueridge.petfinder.com. You can visit us on Facebook, group name Rescue Ridge, or follow us on Twitter at http://twitter.com/rescueridge. Donation fees can vary, but are typically $300.

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.

I am a fun 4 year old brindle boy with a love of music and the ladies ... see, they named me appropriately ;). Seriously, though, I am a great boy, very friendly with everyone, including my fellow canine friends. I'm really happy that Rescue Ridge has welcomed me with open arms and taking good care of me, but I long for a home all my own. I'm a big boy with an even bigger heart. I just want a family that I can give it to ... could it be yours? If you want a big ole lug who likes to take walks in the park, romp in the kiddie pool, snooze away a summer day in the cool grass and cuddle up at night and watch some television, then I am your man!!

  • Terrier
Howdy folks, my name is Liam and I am a relative newbie here at the rescue. I am around 1 to 2 years old. I get lots of oohs and aahs when people first meet me. They say I am quite the handsome chap and when they get to know the personality behind the good looks, I get even more compliments. So, I believe I am quite the catch, folks! I've made lots of friends here rather quickly, both human and canine. I love to go for walks with my volunteer friends and play with my four legged buddies in the play yard. Please apply to adopt Liam at: RescueRidge.com He is waiting for you in Central New Jersey. Here is my newest video link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6CxlnktJrs and here is a previous video of me: http://youtu.be/iIWIitsQyVA where I am playing with another dog in the play yard.

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! ?

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.

Let’s give a big Rescue Ridge welcome to JERSEY! This gal is a delight in every way! Jersey is a 5yr Beagle/Bulldog mix who is a bit of a bull in a china shop with her Bulldog + body and then has the cutest Beagle looking face! Jersey came to Rescue Ridge via a local shelter and she’s currently living with a foster family. She’s a bit on the chubby side, goofy yet gracious, super affectionate, cuddly and eager to find her permanent furever home! Jersey is living with another female dog that doesn’t care for her much; however Jersey loves her and all other dogs that she meets! She is also living with a few feline friends whom she doesn’t seem to mind much either. Jersey is an all around easy going gal… A few things to note about our gal: she’s housebroken (SCORE!); don’t be fooled by her rolly-polly body – our girl loves to wrestle, jump around after toys and is active, for several long minutes - ha! She loves to play with her squeaky toys; she enjoys a good game of fetch; enjoys boating adventures; she loves to go for walks and might trot a bit too :)! Jersey knows how to get in and out of the car and she’s a great co/pilot. She also knows how to do the stairs. Jersey will sit for cookies – currently working on giving “paw” and she also knows the command “down”. She listens well, especially to “no” – which is a good thing! She would make a great addition to ANY family based on what her current foster family says! Don’t miss out on this adorable dingaling – she will bring an array of constant smiles and laughter into your life!

She also has a canine foster sibling named Tina and they get along great, each respectful of one anothers space. While Gina loves to be doing things (she's great on walks and loves to play with toys), she is most happy cuddling up with the family. She sounds fantastic right? Well there is even more - she knows sit, stay, paw & down, loves children and other dogs, is housebroken, great in the car and is crate trained. Whew, what an amazing girl!!

He gets along fine with children and other dogs. Brutus needs lots of TLC. He needs to go outside frequently to urinate or he will have an occasional accident in the house.

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!

Good Evening Everyone, my name is LAFFY and I am new to the Rescue Ridge Family! Aren't I a cutie?? I am a 15 month old Terrier Mix with good looks, a fantastic disposition, and if I do say so myself, a great catch! I was recently pulled from a local shelter and am currently residing in a temporary foster home, which I love!! My foster family is pretty cool, it's made up of humans, canines, and felines. I pay no mind to the kitties and my foster family feels I may have been taught a lesson at one time by those feisty felines. I am great with other dogs and up for play whenever they are. I would love to find a permanent home where there is another dog for me to pal around with. So, obviously, I love to play, as I am still a young chap, but I adore snuggle time with my humans, too. I am a very affectionate boy, and I will sit on your lap and give you kiss after kiss if you let me. I really think you'll enjoy all the loving I have to give. I also know some of my basic commands and am house and crate trained. Like I said earlier, I am a great catch! So let's make set a date to meet, okay?

INFORMATION BELOW IS BASED ON HIS CURRENT CAREGIVERS REPORT. ********************* If you are interested in adopting this pet, please contact Joan at 732-681-3450. Dallas is a Lab & Shepard mix Joby is American Bull Dog and American Terrier Mix. They both are great with people, kids and other dogs. They have never been introduced to cats so we don't know how that would go. They are house broken and love to snuggle and cuddle with you. They do love to go for walks but they do pull a little. 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. We are just looking for the best possible scenario for the dogs! Disclaimer: This website is used as a medium for any dog in need of a home. No information on this site is guaranteed.
