Adoption Events On Hold, Dogs Still Available

In light of our current situation Peppertree Rescue is postponing our adoption events until further notice.

However we do still have some wonderful dogs for adoption and would love to help you find your dog.  If there is a dog on our site that interests you the first step is to put in an application here and let us know you are interested in a certain dog on your application.

If you have an application in, please do not hesitate to call us at 518-435-7425 or e-mail us at rescue@peppertree.org when you see a dog you are interested in.

As always our dogs are placed not on a first come first serve basis, but based on who is the best fit for the dog, so while we do encourage you to be proactive it does take time to go through the process and we appreciate your patience as well.

Thank you and stay safe,

  • Hound mix,
  • female,
  • 5 years,
  • 45 lbs.

If you can provide a quiet, adult-only home with a secure physical fence and another mellow dog, Gingersnap might just be the one for you. This sweet girl is a gentle, unassuming companion, content to rest near you for hours on end. She makes a wonderful TV-watching buddy. Learn More >


  • Shih Tzu mix
  • male,
  • 11 years,
  • 16 lbs.

If we were to make a list of the “goodest boys ever,” Maxton would surely be near the top. He is such an easy keeper, all he wants to do is hang out near his people and go for short walks. He can usually be found resting in one of the many dog beds available, though he also enjoys some cuddles Learn More >

Maybelline and Gomer

  • Lab/chow mix,
  • Maybelline, 5 years, 78 lbs.
  • Gomer, 4 years, 70 lbs.

Affectionate and playful, Maybelline and Gomer are a bonded pair of black lab/chow mixes that were surrendered to a South Carolina shelter. We believe they may be a mother and son. Sassy Maybelline is about 5 years old and laid-back Gomer is a little younger, about 3 years old. Learn More >


  • Lab/terrier? mix,
  • female,
  • 6 years,
  • 50 lbs.
8/12 UPDATE: Nika’s surgery went great and she has been a model patient during the recuperation!
She is once again available for meet and greets.
6/13 UPDATE: Nika will be undergoing surgery soon and will not be available for meet and greets until she is healed. Stay tuned for updates!
While her looks suggest she might be a chocolate lab mix, her personality is more like a regal old soul,

  • German Shepherd mix,
  • male,
  • 9 years,
  • 75 lbs.

Oscar was placed as a puppy listed as a German Shepherd mix, and on his return 8 years later, we are thinking we might have been a bit off on his breed combo. We are wondering now if he might have some Akita, or maybe some Chow? Learn More >


  • Min Pin,
  • male,
  • 8 years,
  • 17 lbs.

Pirate is a very endearing dog. Just do not call him cute, he has the spirit of a Doberman packed into a Min Pin body and wants you to respect his authority. His life work is to keep his home safe. Pirate loves to let you know when someone rings the doorbell, even if the doorbell is on the TV, Learn More >


  • Yorkie mix,
  • male,
  • 7 years,
  • 6 lbs.

Who needs cuddles? Rhodey does! Rest assured that this tiny bundle of joy will be in your business 24/7. You’ll soon be wondering how you got any emails done without him laying half on your laptop, and how you ever went to the bathroom unescorted! Learn More >


  • Border collie/Aussie mix,
  • female,
  • 50 lbs,
  • 12 years

Star came to Peppertree from a Kentucky shelter after being found as a stray. As a 12 year old, Star has so much love to give! She loves to go out on walks and be outside. As you can imagine, she’s very easy on the leash, but still has a prey drive when it comes to squirrels. Learn More >


  • Shepherd(?) mix,
  • male,
  • 3 years,
  • 55 lbs.

Vito brings the fun! He is about 3 years old but may be younger. He’s looking for a home that likes to be active. Vito is a high energy boy who is into playing outside, hiking and exploring. He likes to hunt around for chippies and LOVES to play in our fenced yard with a tennis ball, Learn More >
