Rescuing Dogs since 1990!


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.


Louie came to Oakland Animal Shelter as a stray. He seems to have pretty good care and is even a little overweight (1 or 2 lbs. He is currently at 18 or 20 lbs. He's a little shy with new people but liked some neck scratching about 5 minutes after I met him. He is with a lot of dogs all day and gets along with them all. If our guess of Beagle mix is correct or not he would be a good family dog and at 4 or 5 years old would not need a lot of work. He is house trained and knows basic obedience. We have not seen any unusual barking.  Please let us know if you would be interested in fostering Louie.


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.
