Rescue Dogs Rock NYC is a volunteer-run animal rescue organization dedicated to saving innocent lives from high-kill shelters. When they heard news of a young dog at a high-kill shelter who was so badly neglected he hardly even looked like a dog, the rescue team felt compelled and obligated to step in and save his innocent life.

The gentle dog they named Dusty had been so poorly neglected, his skin was raw and his spirit was broken. He was deemed to be in critical condition and was rushed to the emergency room for treatment.

Dusty will need a blood transfusion and an IV, and he will need to be monitored and kept in the hospital until he is healthy enough to be released. 



If your heart breaks for Dusty and you would like to help him on his road to recovery, please visit the Rescue Dogs Rock NYC Facebook page to follow updates on his journey and find out how to make a donation toward his rehabilitation. As a non-profit organization that is entirely run by volunteers, every donation is appreciated and makes a meaningful impact.

Unfortunately, Dusty’s story is not an isolated case. Companion animals are surrendered to shelters at alarming rates, often for just the mere convenience of people. Sadly, most are not as lucky as Dusty, and 5,500 animals are killed in shelters across America every single day. That is over two million innocent lives killed each year! So, please share this with your friends and family to spread awareness about why adopting animals from shelters is so valuable.
