Urgent Fosters

Grateful Dogs Rescue is looking for San Francisco bay area foster homes for the dogs posted below. These dogs URGENTLY need foster homes. They are at risk of euthanization at the San Francisco Animal Care and Control Shelter. The Grateful Dogs Rescue evaluators met these dogs and have evaluations on each. Grateful Dogs Rescue believes that getting them out of the shelter and into a loving family will prove that they are very much adoptable! They need temporary foster homes until adopters can be found.


Poor ​Maevis, she has already been adopted and returned twice, this last time after more than 6 years!  Maevis is a Bassett Hound/German Shepherd dog mix and is 9-10 years old and weighs about 65 pounds.  All she asks for is some nice walks, a comfortable place to sleep, and a home without small children or other dogs.  Can you foster Maevis?

Hi, my name is Zeke and I hate to brag, but I have a distinctive brindle coat that turns heads and 
prompts awfully nice compliments. People are great and I love to love them! I adore dogs, too, and am best pals 
with the four other doggies I live with in my foster home. 
I'm a happy guy, well-behaved and sometimes silly, already crate-trained. I take medicine for a minor issue.


Barry is a fun playful little dachshund mix who loves toys and running in the park. He is about 2 years old and 18 pounds. He is very affectionate with people he knows. Barry is very house trained. He needs an experienced foster who can give him a quiet place to relax and get lots of love.
