❤ We are See Spot Rescued ❤

We rescue the soul mates, pack members, and best friends you need.


See Spot Rescued is not a shelter. We are a foster-only, non-profit 501(c)3 dog rescue based in Jersey City, NJ, and Austin, TX. We’re staffed entirely by volunteers passionate about rescuing dogs who dream of finding loving homes where they can rest their heads and hang up their leashes.


Since our founding in 2011, our purpose has been clear: to advocate for at-risk dogs by hand-picking their most ideal, forever human family through a careful vetting process.


Each dog we save is our client. We’re 100% committed to matching them with lifetime companions who will show them the same unconditional love they’ll undoubtedly give you.


Our dogs don’t go to just any home, which is why we get to know both our dog and you first. Then we make sure to match based on both the dogs’ and your previous histories and personalities, the dogs’ breeds, and your experience with animals.


To date, we’ve placed thousands of lucky canines in loving homes with a focus on saving those from high-kill shelters.


Hopefully, this is only the beginning.


We focus on saving dogs from high-kill shelters.

It’s hard to imagine dogs more in need than those we’re trying to help.

Regardless of their age, health, or breed, and no matter what their needs are – from extensive vetting or surgery, to a specific type of dog owner – we’re here to provide it. We do everything in our power to help them not just survive, but thrive.
All of our dogs are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped*, and if necessary, are de-wormed and de-flead, prior to adoption. In any cases in which the dog faces serious illness, we have them fully treated at our own expense. Because they’re worth it.

*A microchip isn’t a GPS chip. But microchipping makes it possible for anyone who finds a stray or lost dog to take the animal to a vet where the chip is “scanned” in order to locate the owner’s address and contact information.
