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.
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.

Dear Friends and Supporters,
You continue to amaze us with your generosity, support, and compassion. You have once again helped us find homes for hundreds of homeless and unwanted animals in our area, secure critical and sometimes life-saving medical care for them, and provide pet food to pet families in our community that are struggling financially.
As the world opened back up this year, our work became more vital than ever. Vet offices reopened but continue to operate at less than full capacity. The vastly reduced available appointments for vet care as well as spays and neuters slowed down our intake and adoptions.
Adoption events were hindered as well. Our 2 big Fundraisers never happened.
If you are looking for a meaningful way to help, our greatest need is always foster homes - an amazing way to make a tremendous impact in an animal's life for a short-term commitment. It may sound daunting, but it's usually the dogs last chance at being safe.
If you have a fundraiser idea, email us! If you have a specific skill to offer - grant writing, law expertise, social media volunteers, even driving - let us know that, too! Because we are run strictly by volunteers, it truly takes a village.
And, of course, we are always grateful for any monetary donations you are able to give to cover our needs: the medical care of our animals; vital spay/neuter efforts; food, medicine and supplies; and so much more. The upside to being run entirely by unpaid volunteers is that every dollar you give goes directly towards our efforts to help animals! However you are able to help, we graciously thank you.
Your continuous support has still allowed us to help some severely medically challenged cases.
The amount of Covid victims with 4 paws were left to fend for themselves is overwhelming. We stepped up where we could. That just wouldn't be possible without your help.
On behalf of all of us at Pet ResQ Inc., we wish you and your loved ones a healthy and happy holiday season, and we hope to see you in the New Year! --
Your friends at Pet ResQ Inc.

We are 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.
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.
