About AmsterDog Dog Rescue

AmsterDog Rescue began in seed after a small group of volunteers got together to help animals in need in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. We did fundraising, went down to rescue dogs and brought several vanloads of homeless pets up to the northeast and found them forever homes. In the process of that rewarding endeavor, we became aware of how many sweet adoptable dogs and cats were being put down every day right here in our own city shelters.

With a desire to help save these precious lives, we formed a small rescue effort and became an established group in May 2010 called AmsterDog Rescue, named after our beloved dog named Amsterdam, found on the Ave he was named for. Amsterdam was found wandering the streets of Harlem, a big white 70 lb. scary looking Pit Bull mix, and many people would cross the street when they saw him. In fact, he is a big mush of a dog, loves to nuzzle, get belly rubs and keeps us all calm. He is our rock and truly is proof that they, in fact, rescue us!

We are a non-profit group of volunteers. AmsterDog is a 501c3 organization and all donations go solely to help saving more animals in need. We are dedicated to the plight of abandoned animals, finding loving, responsible homes for animals on death-row, with special focus on the abused animals, who find themselves in city shelters, through no fault of their own.
