We are their voice.
Pet ResQ Inc. is an all volunteer, foster-based rescue that believes ALL dogs deserve a chance. Our main focus is rescuing and rehabilitating small dogs and puppies, most of which have been neglected, handicapped or abused. Once secured, they are all placed into foster homes where they are vetted, groomed, evaluated and re-homed. To date, we have rescued thousands of our furry friends and placed them into safe, loving forever homes.
Helping our Neighbors
The COVID-19 pandemic and corresponding shutdown have caused the worst food insecurity we have seen in our lifetimes. There's no shame in accepting a little assistance while we all wait to come out on the other side of this.
Whether your family is 2-legged or 4, if it's an extra bag of food or ongoing support, we want to keep families together.

Best of 2020
Pet ResQ Inc. has been awarded "Best of 2020" by the Tenafly Award Program for Animal Rescue Service. We are so grateful for the recognition!
SPOTLIGHT DOG - BLUE
This is Blue. He is a 2 year old Aussie/Heeler Mix. As you can see from his pictures he has one brown eye and one blue eye. He was surrendered to rescue because his family could not afford the surgery he needed to fix his broken leg after being hit by a car. He came through the surgery with flying colors and is now looking for his furever hone. Blue is neutered and current on his vaccines. Because of the breed traits Blue will need a home with a secure, completely fenced in yard. Blue is a total love. This is one AWESOME dog.

We were founded with the following goals:
To provide pet rescue services.
To stimulate interest and concern in the prevention of animal abuse and neglect.
To rescue, rehabilitate and re-home pets from many situations.
To rescue without prejudice; meaning the health, age or zip code of an animal does not determine whether they deserve to be saved. When we can, we always do.
To save animals from being destroyed and work in cooperation with private and governmental agencies to promote the proper care and treatment of animals.
To aid, assist, cooperate, and co-sponsor in situations when needed to keep an animal with its family.
To be heavily involved in all aspects of disaster relief for victims of all species.
Sometimes it costs thousands of dollars to achieve these goals but we believe all life matters and they are WORTH IT!
We Love our Volunteers!
We operate strictly on donations with dedicated volunteers and loving foster families. We adopt in our four-state area (most of NY, NJ, PA, CT) no more than 1.5 hours from our location.
At this time we do not have a shelter. We rely on our network of fosters so meet-and-greets are by appointment only.
We're working towards our goal of raising enough funds to purchase a property in Northern Bergen County where we can create a cage-less shelter. The most difficult decision for us is to have to turn down an animal in need for lack of space.
Proud to be Your Rescue
Pet ResQ Inc. is extremely proud to have been listed as one of the Top 5 rescues in Northern New Jersey. We have also been honored with the Onyx and Breezy's Heart Award, Pets and Heroes Award, The Russ Berrie Award in 2015 & 2017 and Robyn was awarded the Women of Achievement Award from NJ State Federation of Women's Clubs of GFWC in 2018.
Most recently, we were awarded Best of 2020 Tenafly. We have been a recipient of Rachel Ray's Murt Maddness Grant and we participate in Broadway Barks.
