From Foster to Forever!


Skeeter is about 3 years old and 12-15 pounds. He has spent most of the first 3 years of his life living in a kennel, so wants a fun active home. Skeeter is looking for a new foster or forever home where he can practice his fetch skills and stay active. Skeeter does not enjoy young children, but would probably be fine with teenagers. He would prefer to be an only dog. Let us know if you would be interested in meeting Skeeter!


Handsome Walker is looking for a foster or adopter.  He is approximately 2 years old, 73 lbs, and ready to find his new home.   He is well behaved in the house and rides well in the car.  It is thought that Walker might not have had much exposure to dogs in his formative months as he gets very excited to see new canine friends.  He has been at a training facility for the last month in order to learn basic obedience and how to remain calm around other dogs.  The difference in him is amazing as he is now able to even walk calmly past dogs that are barking at him.  His trainer feels that Walker would be good at Nosework or tracking activities as he spends quite a lot of time (more than the average dog) sniffing.  He might do well living with another dog if they are properly introduced.  He was initially in a foster home with four older shepherds and he was very respectful of them.   Walker has much potential to be a great companion and will do well with anyone committed to continuing his training.  His trainer has offered to help transition him to a to a new home with some instruction.

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.
