Rudy’s Rescue is a not-for-profit volunteer dog rescue organization serving Rochester, NY and surrounding areas. Our focus is on Labrador Retrievers, however we will help with other breeds and animals when space allows.
We are dedicated to rescuing Labs left homeless for whatever reason. Following a comprehensive adoption process we place dogs in loving, caring homes. This process includes taking considerable care to find quality matches versus the quantity of adoptions. This can mean that a dog can be in our care for some time. While we won’t euthanize a dog due to space issues, this means that we cannot take in every dog that needs help. We assist dogs in distress without regard to age or ease of placement.
Animals in our care receive all appropriate veterinary care and treatment, and are placed in nurturing foster homes while they await placement in their permanent homes. We do not have a permanent shelter and we rely on our foster families, online resources and adoption events and meet and greets. As such, since the foster homes are the backbone of our organization it is our goal to provide them with the best experience possible.
We believe every animal deserves to be loved. Our ultimate goal is to see the day when our services are no longer needed.
