Rescuing Dogs since 1990!


Zeke is a young (about 8 months) handsome brindle and white pit bull mix. He passed all of the shelters behavior test and was made available for adoption but was pulled for medical reasons. He passed out 2 times in play group which appears to be due to petite mal seizures. Zee is in a temporary foster home but needs a more permanent arrangement or a foster-to-adopt home. Zeke is playful and sociable. He loves people and other dogs. He walks well on leash. Please let us know if you could foster this sweet pup!


Quinn is probably a chiweenie. He has a narrow nose and short legs like a dachshund but is the size of chihuahua. He weighs about 10 pounds and is about a year old. He loves being held and loves laps. He walked pretty well on leash but gets startled by loud noises. He is very treat motivated so once he is in a stable relaxed place, he should be fun to train.
Quinn needs a foster home!

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.
