HARRISON, N.Y. -- At a loss for a holiday gift for a loved one?
Pet Rescue of Harrison has an answer: The non-profit animal facility at 7 Harrison Ave. recently rescued a batch of dogs and puppies from a "high kill" shelter in Louisiana. Pet Rescue also offers cats and kittens for adoption.
Caroline Walker, a volunteer, said that on Nov. 21, Pet Rescue transported newly rescued dogs to Harrison "where tails are wagging as they await their forever families."
The canines answer when called by such names of Bitty, Dodger, Miki, Tinkerbelle, Tweetie and Winnie. (The last three dogs are from the same litter.)
Each of the dogs was slated for euthanasia because Louisiana's shelters are so overcrowded, Walker said.
"This is a fun-loving and happy group of dogs," Walker said, "and typical of Pet Rescue dogs, they were specifically selected for their wonderful temperaments and ability to fit right into family life."
Whether you are looking for a lab-mix, Aussie heeler, Shepherd, or something else entirely, "there’s a dog in this group that is sure to win your heart this holiday season," Walker told Daily Voice.
Pet Rescue's next Meet & Greets are on Saturday Dec. 19 and Dec. 26 , from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 7 Harrison Ave., Harrison. Adoption applications are online here or call (914) 835-3332 for details.
Pet Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue organization founded in 1982. The group has rescued more than 15,000 animals.
