Here at Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, we don’t just save the easy ones; we focus on saving the more difficult, the most urgent, critically injured and expensive dogs to save. Why? Because there are too many companion animals with medical and emotional needs that have been victims of cruelty, abuse and neglect that will never leave the shelter alive due to their needs all too often because of the funding & long-term commitment involved in rescuing them. Shelters just do not have funds to address these concerns.
As announced one short month ago, we have acquired our own rescue and rehabilitation center in Suffolk County on Long Island giving us our own home for our dogs in need. This will allow us to save many more needy and deserving dogs. The center sits on half an acre and allows indoor/outdoor kennels and has lots of outdoor space. That is the good news and why we chose this particular property. This has been 3 years in the making, so we are very excited to have come this far. Now the real work comes in as the center is in disrepair and has nothing done to it in probably 30 years. It really needs to be gutted and rebuilt. We need bigger and more modern kennels & air conditioning to start. We want it to be a comfortable oasis for these dogs who have already been through so much.
Our new rescue center will cost approximately $350,000 to get it where it needs to be and ready to open and start taking in dogs. We have hired a general contractor & are very excited to get started with this huge undertaking. Will you help us get our facility up and running?
NO amount is too little!
TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your ongoing support. We could not take this huge step without you.

“Save a life by adopting instead of shopping”
Rescue Dogs Rock is a non-profit animal rescue founded in 2015. We exist solely on donations and rely primarily on fundraising to help animals in need.
Since its inception, Rescue Dogs Rock NYC has saved over 9,300 dogs.
Our goal is to save abused & at risk dogs from kill shelters & provide vetting & loving homes.
We want to introduce these animals to the public and educate people that unwanted companion animals are not damaged goods or unworthy, but really can be great family pets. Because the abuse, neglect, cruelty and medical cases cost shelters the most money and are the most urgent, they are often the first animals euthanized.
It is our goal to focus on the rescue of these urgent animals and provide them immediately the routine, emergency or specialized medical care they need and deserve. We will go beyond just vet care and get these animals rehabilitated as needed using trainers and behaviorists to help overcome issues related to past trauma.
Our outreach and education efforts will take place on our website, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, as well as in person in the community via community events, school assemblies and any place people may lawfully gather to exchange information and learn.
Our message is one teaching general animal care and welfare, population control through spay and neuter and disease control in the animal population via proper vaccinations.
