New Jersey Rescue Dogs

Home for Good Dog Rescue (HFGDR) is a 100% foster-based, non-profit 501(c)(3) dog rescue established in 2010 in Summit, New Jersey with offices in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey. We rescue dogs from high-kill shelters in South Carolina and Georgia, which are overflowing with unwanted dogs on the brink of being euthanized. We then transport the dogs to New Jersey where they are placed in loving foster homes while they await adoption into loving homes for good!
