News & Events

Pet Rescue and New Rochelle Humane Society, two far-reaching and respected animal rescue organizations, are joining forces on Sunday, September 27, 2015 to hold our 7th annual Hounds on the Sound Dog Walk and Festival. We are excited that the event will be at a new venue this year — Harbor Island Park in Mamaroneck, NY. Last year’s event was a huge success, with more than 1,000 people and their dogs attending.

The main event at “Hounds on the Sound” will be a leisurely 1.0 mile walk by people and their dogs on a course bordering on Long Island Sound. Walkers are encouraged to collect donations from friends, family and co-workers to support their walk. We are also looking for vendors, donors and sponsors. Forms for all four can be obtained by clicking on the appropriate button below.

Pepsi arrived here a few weeks back. Unfortunately, she had a birth defect and required surgery so she can have a second chance for a great life.

She is absolutely beautiful, but behind that pretty face lies a serious birth defect that made it impossible for Pepsi to swallow without regurgitating.
