Ready for Rescue is a 501c3 non-profit committed to saving cats and dogs from the streets and shelters of New York City.
Each year we rescue more than a hundred wonderful cats and dogs. We're especially committed 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 next on a shelter's euthanasia list. We also have a particular fondness for pit bulls, a misunderstood dog breed.
We provide our cats and dogs with the finest medical care and place them in foster homes while we look for forever families.
Ready for Rescue is a 100% volunteer organization – every dollar goes to the care and well-being of our animals.
The Doggone Truth
American Staffordshire Terriers, aka “pit bulls,” get a bad rap through no fault of their own. Don't be misled! The truth is they are loving & loyal companions that make great family dogs. Meet one of R4R’s rescued pitties today!
You Can Help!
Venmo is the most efficient way to help our animals!
We're also part of the Amazon Smile program! When you shop choose Ready for Rescue as the charity of your choice. The program has brought in $2600 to date for R4R (11/1/22), and it costs our Smile shoppers nothing!
Each year R4R spends thousands of dollars on veterinary bills. Help us continue our mission by donating to our Youcaring campaign. Any amount is appreciated.
