We need foster families!
This dog is not available for adoption.
This face is just one of the faces that was saved from death in a shelter.
How did we do it? With generous donations from people like you! Also, our foster homes were waiting with open arms to keep these dogs in their house while we find them new homes. Please won't you consider fostering a dog for Rudy's Rescue???
Right now, there are many dogs and puppies in the pound waiting for us to bring them to safety. Without the support of our foster families we cannot pull these dogs from the pound and bring them to Rochester.

Fostering is a good option for those who love dogs but cannot commit to a dog for 10-14 years. Most of our dogs are in their foster homes for two weeks to two months.
Our featured dog is Diesel.
Diesel’s owner was given a “It’s Me or The Dog” ultimatum by his girlfriend, and sadly for this two year old gorgeous, young black Lab, he chose the girlfriend and dumped him at the shelter. Their loss is our gain!
Fortunately, we were able to transport him to the comfort of a loving foster home here in Rochester, NY. He passed the temperament test, and is good on lead. Diesel is at first cool towards strangers but warms up quickly.
His favorite toy is the mostly stuffed hedgehog you see in a couple of these pictures.
Diesel would thrive in an environment that includes having a man in the house that he can idolize! Within a few short days in foster he is much happier and loves to play with his fur-sibling, another black Lab. He’s really great in the house and really just wants to be wherever people are.
Diesel is house trained, up to date on vaccinations, neutered, but we suspect he was mistreated by children so he’s unsure about kids. He weighs about 75 lbs.
He would do well as an only dog, or with other dogs. He was cat-tested at the shelter and ignores them, however as part of our adoption selection process, Diesel would have to meet any resident pets.
