Champagne says, "Wanna put a little spring in your step? Adopt! We have cats and dogs waiting to meet you!"

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 misunderstood breed of dog. We provide our cats and dogs with the finest medical care and place them in foster homes while looking for forever families. 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.

The Doggone Truth! 

American Staffordshire Terriers, aka "pit bulls", get a bad rap through no fault of their own. Don't be mislead by misinformation! The truth is they are amazing, loving and loyal companions and make great family dogs. Meet one of our rescued pitties today--he or she is sure to melt your heart.
