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,

The Peppertree Board

Cocoa Puff and Sarsaparilla

  • Chihuahua mixes,
  • female,
  • Cocoa Puff, 14 years, 13 lbs.
  • Sarsaparilla, 13 years, 11 lbs.

These two sweet, senior girls are looking for a home to spend their golden years. Both are snuggly little love bugs that would love to spend all day lounging with their human. Sarsaparilla (Sassy to her friends) is definitely the dominant of this pair and lives up to her name. Learn More >

Jiminy cricket, it’s Cricket! This gorgeous young lady is here to steal your heart with her big brown eyes and chocolatey coat. No one is immune to her charms. She is particularly fond of other dogs and loves to play and snuggle with them. Her real wish though is to be a lapdog. Learn More >


  • Mix,
  • male,
  • 1-2 years,
  • 70 lbs.

Curious, playful and goofy are just a few qualities that describe this handsome young boy. Meet Jaxson, a  sweet pup who is discovering his “inner puppy” and enjoying every moment of it. He is a little shy with new human friends, but once you pass the sniff test, he will be your best buddy. Learn More >


  • Mix,
  • male,

  • 38 lbs.

Julien brings the sweetness and the fun equally, making him a great pal for anyone who wants a life full of laughter and snuggles. When you first meet him, Julien might not show you just how fun he is. You see, he’s still getting used to humans, but he’s a quick learner Learn More >


  • Lab/terrier? mix,
  • female,
  • 6 years,
  • 50 lbs.
While Nika’s looks suggest she might be a chocolate lab mix, her personality is more like a regal old soul, she just doesn’t quite fit the goofiness associated with that breed, and we debate her heritage regularly. Is she a Chesapeake Bay retriever mix?  A terrier mix?

  • 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 >

Rodger – placement pending

  • All-American mix,
  • male,
  • 2 years,
  • 22 lbs.

Time for a nap? Rodger that! This easy-going pup has an old soul and is wise beyond his years. Unlike many dogs his age, he understands the value of a nap on the couch, a peaceful walk, and sunbathing on the porch. While he enjoys a walk as much as anyone else, what Rodger really wants is your company! Learn More >


  • Mix,
  • female,
  • 6 years,
  • 78 lbs.

A perfect day for Starla includes lots of butt scratches, cuddling, and a nice leisurely stroll to check out all of the scents and sounds of the world. She’s a very mild-mannered companion and prefers a quieter home that will match her energy. Learn More >


  • Shepherd mix,
  • male,
  • 3 years,
  • 55 lbs.

Vito may look tough, but don’t be fooled. Ok, true, he does have a giant head full of muscles… but he needs them for looking macho while defending his yard against squirrels and chippies. While he hasn’t been able to keep them away permanently, he hasn’t raised the white flag just yet. Learn More >
