Rescue Dog Adoptions In The San Francisco Bay Area

Grateful Dogs Rescue is the oldest all-breed rescue group in San Francisco.  For more than two decades our mission has been to save the lives of dogs at San Francisco Animal Care and Control that are at risk of euthanasia.  We save as many of these dogs as possible, place them in experienced foster homes, and provide veterinary care and training as needed until loving adopters can be found. We are a volunteer run organization with no paid staff, the funds that are donated to Grateful Dogs Rescue all go toward the care and training of the dogs.
