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 100 wonderful cats and dogs. Ready for Rescue is a 100% volunteer organization – every dollar goes to the care and well-being of our animals.
We are 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.
