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?

​​Dorrie is a really fun dog with a lot of energy. She is sweet and loves people. She loves to run and she loves treats. She came in as a very skinny underweight dog (she currently weighs 38 lbs) so is very food motivated. She passed the dog/dog test. She is a year and half and seems very smart. Please let us know if you might be interested in fostering Dorrie!


Emma is a nice young, energetic dog. After Emma gets some play time she calms to a curious young girl. Emma is a fairly small pit bull mix who is about 1 yr old. She loves to run and play. She tests well with dogs and people. Emma is an adolescent who will need someone willing to put in a little time everyday and work on thinks like walking calmly on leash, impulse training, basic obedience, jumping, and overall house manners. She should be a really good family dog in a short time, but she is probably too high energy at the moment to be around small kids.
Please help us find a foster for Emma!

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.
