About Rescue Dogs Rock NYC:
Rescue Dogs Rock NYC’s goal is to raise awareness of the ever-growing plight of homeless animals in the United States, in shelters as well as those abandoned in the streets. The mission of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC is the rescue of these animals and provide them with immediate emergency care, and foster care they deserve. Besides medical treatments, the animals are rehabilitated through trainers and behavior specialists to help overcome past trauma. The organization does not have a physical shelter, and relies on a network of volunteers, fosters and adopters to welcome these animals into their homes and provides them with a nurturing and caring environment.rescuedogsrocknyc.org
