Albert is looking for a new foster home, but a forever home would be even better.  Albert really likes people, and loves going for walks.  This guy arrived at the shelter at 45 pounds and is already down to 37; we think 25 pounds is his ideal weight, so the more walks in his future the better.  Albert is about 6 years old
Albert has retinal degeneration; he can see a bit now, but we expect he will be completely blind in the next year.  Once he learns his way around his home he does great.  His person only needs to help him out, like letting him know when a step is coming up, for him to be pretty fearless on walks.
Albert would do well as an only dog or with one other dog, especially one that doesn't mind letting Albert follow her around.  There are a few other dogs in Albert's current foster home and that isn't the ideal situation for him.


Two year old chihuahua mix Geri weighs about 8 pounds.  She is frightened and shy in the shelter, but such a sweet little girl.  With her adorable upturned nose, they think there might be a little pug in this girl.  Please let us know if you would consider fostering Geri!


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.

From Foster to Forever!
