True North Pet Rescue Mission

Brooklyn, NY

Our Mission

True North Rescue is a 501C (pending) not for profit animal rescue founded in April 2017. Our mission is to save dogs in need by bringing them to New York where they can be placed into loving homes.

True North values diversity and is proud to have partners in Texas, North Carolina, and Puerto Rico. We are the only East Coast Partner for Slaughterhouse Survivors in Harbin, China where dogs are rescued from the meat trade.
True North is fully volunteer run and relies on the generosity of public donations and adoption fees to raise the funds needed to keep us running.

We are also entirely foster-based, with no physical shelter space to house dogs.

The kindness of our supporters is what makes our mission possible.

Adoption Policy

First Step: Submit Your Application

True North does not issue blanket approvals, we consider the needs of each specific dog when reviewing applications. If you don't have a specific dog in mind when applying, please note this on your application so that we can keep this in mind when reviewing.

We require home photos for all applicants, but can accept a video replacement. Please enter as much detail as possible on your application, this helps us better understand what you are looking for and how this relates to the needs of the dog you have applied for.

For puppies under 12 weeks, we require a care plan. This includes a plan for when the dog will be left alone, as puppies younger than 12 weeks should not be left alone longer than 2-3 hours at a time.

Please Note: Due to the high volume of applications we receive, it is not always possible to reply to everyone. If your application is approved, you can expect the following.

Second Step: Application Review & Approval

1. If your application is approved, an email will be sent connecting you with the dog's current foster. At this time, you may schedule a mutually convenient time to meet.

2. After meeting, you have 24 hours to confirm if you would like to move forward with finalizing the adoption. After this, if we have not heard from you, we will begin scheduling other meets.

3. If you choose to finalize, we will issue an adoption contract via email.

Once the signed agreement has been electronically returned along with the adoption fee (which will be disclosed prior to adopting), you will be all set to coordinate for pick-up with the foster!

Adoption Fees:

Our adoption fees are comparable to those found amongst other well-known rescues in the city.

We only accept electronic payments for adoption fees.
