Rescue Dog Adoptions In The

San Francisco Bay Area


Grateful Dogs Rescue is the oldest all-breed rescue group in San Francisco.  Since 1990 our mission has been to save the lives of local dogs, primarily 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 as needed until loving adopters can be found.  We are an all-volunteer organization with no paid staff, so donations to Grateful Dogs Rescue go towards the care of our dogs.
