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!


Dobby would love a quiet, adult only home with an experienced dog owner. Like many small dogs, he can be a lap guarder. He would be happy as an only dog, but could live with other small dogs. He passed a cat test, but has not met any cats recently. There should not be children in his home. He is incredibly quiet and rarely barks or makes any noise. Dobby loves toys! He is very good at keeping himself entertained with squeaky toys and balls. He loves his walks and he loves riding in cars.


Little Panda is running out of time. Our evaluator really likes him him, but he is leash reactive with dogs, especially with big dogs. He is fine with people and handling. If we had an experienced foster who could work with him, he should be just fine. He’s 2 years old and about 20 pounds. Please let us now if you might be willing to foster Panda! Time is of the essence.


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.
