  • Hazel
    4 Yrs. Old Red Nose Pit Mix

    Hazel is a courtesy post on Rescue Ridge in central N. J. The information provided here about Hazel was written by her family. If interested in Hazel please send in an application to We will suppy you with food for Hazel for a few months. And a coat. Hazel is a wonderful 4 yr. old, red nose Pit Mix with beautiful golden, Hazel eyes and a really sweet temperament. Due to dire straits, we must leave our home & Cannot take her where we will be staying. She's been with me & my NOW, teenage son since she was 8 mths. old. By one yr old she passed basic training & is still treat driven. She knows: SIT,STAY,LEAVE IT,NO,,DOWN,GIVE PAW & MIGHT? rollover. Hazel ONLY can do off leash in a fenced area! She has two cats as housemates but would do better without as she does want their food & must not have access to litter boxes. She's been fully socialized, LOVES kids, boys in particular, but due to her muscularity and silliness should be supervised in case she bumps into a smaller person or animal too hard. She's protective behind a fence & guarded on a leash. On principle, I don't let her near other dogs on leash unless she knows them well; in a dog park she's fine & she gets along with 99.9% all other dogs. She has NEVER initiated aggression, though her style of playing is rough She would LOVE a dog buddy but should be with a sturdy dog For the forementioned reasons. She's sensitive and very expressive facially, VERY human-like She REQUIRES grain free food & NO poultry by-product or very little poultry Byproduct as she's prone to skin allergy & yeast and MIGHT react to grass or wheat Grass upon skin contact.& has had yeast build up before. NO OATMEAL baths The special skin care ones are best. She has a crate ONLY used when a guest might be afraid of dogs. I use a prong collar only because she is so strong & I have a very bad( torn) Shoulder. She does require a coat in cold weather when walking And she doesn't do well in extreme heat, she's a sensitive little redhead. Overall whoever gets Hazel will be EXTREMELY Lucky! PLEASE know that this is killing me! I rescued her & put a lot of love, patience, time & money Into making her who she is

  • Tony Danza 7 Yrs. Old Italian Greyhound

    A volunteer wrote: 'I met a very special little guy today. His name is Tony Danza. He is an incredible mixture of Italian Greyhound, which gives him such grace and agility, and Dachshund, which gives him impeccable hunting instincts. He is just 7 years old, 14 lbs.. and, in his young life, he has seen and been through a lot. There are many sides to Tony Danza: gentle, sweet, calm, affectionate, and then there is the bouncy, 'pogo-stick' like behavior that will keep you in stitches! He is amazingly fast on his feet and can sour the skies with a leap! Tony Danza is very housebroken, enjoys walks, is quiet most of the time, and truly just wants someone to love him. Will you? Tony has the most expressive ears, the most beautiful eyes that will melt your heart. He is good with children and best with kids age 10 and older. As I had said, he has been through a lot and needs an experienced owner who is familiar with small breeds. When Tony trusts you, he is a darling, loving, protective boy...loyal and regal, smart, and sassy. I fell in love with Tony Danza today, and I hope that you will, too. He's best flying solo but does like some dogs and definitely no cats or little critters in your home. Remember, he has Doxie in him. Tony Danza is in a foster home in central N. J. and is available right now so hurry!' Tony Danza is courtesy posted for another N. J. rescue. Please apply to adopt Tony Danza at and your application will be forwarded to his rescue. Check out Tony Danza in his video debut:

  • Candy 3.5 Yrs. Old Bulldog

    Candy is currently being fostered in and is available for adoption in the Pennington, NJ area Candy came to us in Feb 2014 as a pup of 6 months and has basically grown up in our rescue. She's been available for adoption the entire time but seems to be overlooked and passed over by potential adopters. Maybe it's because she doesn't always 'show well' at events, maybe it's just that old 'She's a Bulldog' stigma...whatever the reason, Candy has yearned for her new home for nearly four years. What numerous people are missing out on is one really terrific and loving dog! Candy is well mannered and simply loves human interaction, she will sit by your side & let you pet her for hours. While in her foster home, her favorite thing to do when let out of her crate is to run around the entire house leaping as if to say 'I'm free'! Although a fenced in backyard isn't required, she would love one because she loves to gallop flipping her toys into the air! Candy is leash and crate trained and has down all basic commands. She loves car rides & watching TV An ideal home for Candy would be with no other dogs,cats and no young children. She just needs a low key couple that just wants to devote their time to growing this wonderful dog into the greatness we all know she can be! Candy has been on her monthly flea/tick and heart worm preventatives since coming to us and has consistently tested negative for heart worms. Candy just needs a chance and she won't disappoint you. If you'd like to give Candy the home that she so deserves and has been waiting for, then please submit an application at Breed - Bulldog Mix Age - Approx 3 1/2 Size - Medium Weight - Approx 40 lbs. PLEASE EMAIL HER RESCUE AT [email protected] for more information. Here is Candy in her video debut

  • Izzy

    This holiday season will you open your heart to a senior boy with cancer? He had lumps removed and they were cancerous. We are not sure if all the cancer was removed but are sure that this sweet boy deserves a loving home for however long. We are hoping longer than shorter. 

    Izzy is looking for a place to live out his last months or hopefully years.

    Izzy shows no signs of being sick and is just an all-around pleasant boy. He is people and dog-friendly. He barely has any gray on his muzzle and has plenty of spunk in his step. We are not positive of his age. He is a senior. 

    He just needs some love and a place to rest his weary bones.

    Please text Joan at 732-546-8805 if you are interested.

  • Judie
    11 Month Old Black Lab

    Meet Judie


    This beautiful girl is named Judie. She is an 11-month-old Black Lab. She was surrendered to our rescue after it was decided she wasn't going to work as a service dog. That doesn't matter though because Judie is a super sweet and loving dog who wants nothing more than to cuddle in your lap like she is only a 10lb dog even though she currently weighs in at about 70lbs. Judie is still a puppy and would benefit from a puppy training course that could teach her basic manners. Judie definitely loves kids and other dogs and would do great in a home with another young playful dog who could keep up with her energy level. Who wouldn't want this sweet-faced girl to be part of their family!?!? 

    If you are interested in Judie, please go to to complete an application.
