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/

  • Boston Terrier, Jack Russell Terrier
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
This is a courtesy post, so please do NOT contact Rescue Ridge, but instead, please contact Lori at 732-740-5438. Freddie is an adorable 3 1/2 year old neutered Boston terrier/ jack Russell mix. He is a very friendly and lovable pup who likes to snuggle. He is very active and has a lot of energy and would do best as an only pet, as he prefers to be the center of attention. He loves to go on walks and it would be great if he could have a fenced-in yard to run about. Even though Freddie currently is living with 3 other dogs and gets along okay with them, it is still best to use caution with him when meeting new dogs. Freddie is in a loving home but with four dogs it is hard to give him the attention he needs to expend his energy. He can get very pushy for attention. With some structure and a little discipline, Freddie will be a very loyal companion. Freddie is house trained, loves chew toys ( especially the Nyla bone ones) and is not food aggressive. He is up to date with his Rabies shots and has all his documents and paperwork.

Do you have a family that enjoys walks, hiking, picnics in the yard? Dotti is just the sweet, gentle, playful, 8 yrs. young Hound/ Pit Bull mix gal for you!

Dotti was rescued from a very bad situation and really loves to receive and give you all her love. Although they say she is 8 yrs. old, her athletic abilities (champion Frisbee player) and overall amazing shape makes one question her “real” age! After all, “8” is the new “4”, right? Dotti is dog friendly but likes to choose her buddies. She goes potty outside and walks well on a leash. Dotti takes toys and treats politely and is just a really good girl.

Hi Everyone, Jiggy here, I am currently residing in a foster home and it's been awesome! It gives me a taste of what having a real family will be like and I can't wait for that to happen.

I'm an active boy and like to be on the go and have lots of things to do. I love to go for lots of walks, play ball or with my toys and of course, playing with my foster fur sister (I am living with 2 doggies right now). I am house and crate trained, know sit and down, am great on leash and my foster mom said to make sure that I tell you that I am a real love, as well. I love to be near you at all times, cuddling is a favorite pastime and I give the sweetest kisses. And I LOVE belly rubs!! I sound like quite the catch, don't I? So why haven't we met, yet?

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.

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.

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.

HAZEL HAS HER VERY OWN FACEBOOK PAGE! HERE IS HER FB LINK: https://www.facebook.com/adopthazel 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, 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.

Hello everyone! My name is Mandy! I'm about 4 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 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.

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!

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.

This is a courtesy post, so please do NOT contact Rescue Ridge, but instead, please contact Lori at 732-740-5438. Freddie is an adorable 3 1/2 year old neutered Boston terrier/ jack Russell mix. He is a very friendly and lovable pup who likes to snuggle. He is very active and has a lot of energy and would do best as an only pet, as he prefers to be the center of attention. He loves to go on walks and it would be great if he could have a fenced-in yard to run about. Even though Freddie currently is living with 3 other dogs and gets along okay with them, it is still best to use caution with him when meeting new dogs. Freddie is in a loving home but with four dogs it is hard to give him the attention he needs to expend his energy. He can get very pushy for attention. With some structure and a little discipline, Freddie will be a very loyal companion. Freddie is house trained, loves chew toys ( especially the Nyla bone ones) and is not food aggressive. He is up to date with his Rabies shots and has all his documents and paperwork.

Are you looking to have fun with your dog? Do you enjoy a canine companion that loves to play fetch, Frisbee, gives you great little kisses, and loves to be with you? Do you have a family that enjoys walks, hiking, picnics in the yard? Dotti is just the sweet, gentle, playful, 8 yrs. young Hound/ Pit Bull mix gal for you! Dotti may even have a bit of Jack Russell in her because to watch her twirl and jump, she is just an oversized Jack in motion! Dotti was rescued from a very bad situation and really loves to receive and give you all her love. Although they say she is 8 yrs. old, her athletic abilities (champion Frisbee player) and overall amazing shape makes one question her “real” age! After all, “8” is the new “4”, right? Dotti is dog friendly but likes to choose her buddies. She goes potty outside and walks well on a leash. Dotti takes toys and treats politely and is just a really good girl.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!

SONNY here, checking in with you all! I’m another recent addition to the Rescue Ridge family. I am a 14 year old Beagle who is really looking for a forever family that will provide me with the love and comfort of a home in my golden years. I am currently in a foster home where there are other dogs and cats, and while I get along mighty fine with them, I am not into all that playing nonsense. I am all about the rest and relaxation. I don’t require much, a comfortable place to snooze, frequent trips outside for fresh air and if you allow it, cuddle time up on the couch. I like that most of all. If you think you’d like to add a distinguished chap to your family, Here is Sonny's video link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hDV7MzXLELg Please contact rescueridgeshelter@gmail.com and apply to adopt me at: RescueRidge.com I sure hope they hear from you soon

We think you'd be hard-pressed to find a more interesting and totally adorable pup than our SMOKEY! Smokey definitely has some Basset Hound in him - what else makes up his unique look is anyone's guess. Maybe some Lab, some Shar Pei... He's got a long body, short legs, and fabulous coloring. Our handsome boy is ~ 2 years old, and while he's not perfect (who is these days?), he's got so much potential and love to give the right family. Smokey is easy on the leash and wants very much to be home, sweet home. He'll need an adult only, experienced dog family. Please contact us at rescueridgeshelter@gmail.com or fill out the app at rescueridge.com to make a date to meet Smokey!

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.

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.
