Pi lost his human in December. They were together Pi’s whole life. Pi is doing well with the change. He’s going on walks. He had a recent dental and he’s feeling so much better as a result. Pi is enjoying good food and love and a soft warm bed. And really that’s all he asks of you. And walks!   Pi does need medicated baths as his skin heals. He is quiet. Good with other pets. House trained, vaccinated and neutered.  Pi is 15 years old and 10 lbs.  Pi is an easy foster and is in a temporary foster home but needs a more long term foster home.


Grateful Dogs Rescue has an incredibly shy foster dog that needs a new foster home. His current foster home is a fun active house but not the right fit for shy little Valentino.  
Valentino gets along with all dogs of all sizes and as he’s very shy, cats should be no problem.
Valentino will be a rewarding foster experience. You will help this little fellow relax and gain confidences. You’ll watch him blossom and help him learn to love and trust.
Valentino is about 10 years old and between 8-10 lbs.
Are you ready to foster Valentino?


Ziggy is a sweet pit mix who comes from a very neglectful situation. He loves people and loves playing fetch. He has a lot of energy and needs to learn leash manners, but he would make a great best friend. Grateful Dogs Rescue is looking for a foster home for him.


Coral is a lovely young pit mix who has the most amazing hazel eyes. Grateful Dogs Rescue would like to find a foster home for her. Unfortunately she came down with an upper respiratory infection and has to be in ISO for awhile. She could go to a home without other dogs now, but would have to wait until she is healthy to be around other dogs.
Coral is not more than 1 year, maybe about 9 months. She’s very sweet and playful. We think she has a lot of potential. Let us know if you would be interested in fostering Coral.


Please print out a copy of our "Foster a Dog" flier (see downloadable PDF file below) and post it at your local dog park, pet store, office and/or coffee shop. We appreciate your help getting the word out about these wonderful dogs who need to be rescued from the shelter so they won't be euthanized.

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.
