About Us

Ready for Rescue is a 501c3  non-profit committed to saving cats and dogs from the streets and shelters of New York City. We have a special commitment to the underdogs (and undercats) that end up in local kill shelters. We routinely save sick, injured and senior animals, who in many cases are last ones left on the shelter's euthanasia list. We also have a particular fondness for Pit Bulls, a grossly misunderstood breed of dog that are the dogs most likely to not make it out of the shelter. We provide our animals with the finest medical care, place them in foster homes and search for the best forever home for each cat and dog. Each year we rescue over 100 wonderful cats and dogs. Ready for Rescue is a 100% volunteer organization and every dollar goes to the care and well-being of our animals.If you have any questions please contact us


If you are unable to foster or volunteer please consider giving a donation. Any amount will help save an animal's life today!
