Grateful Dogs Rescue is the oldest all-breed rescue group in San Francisco. Since 1990 our mission has been to save the lives of local dogs, primarily at San Francisco Animal Care and Control, that are at risk of euthanasia.
Adopting during lockdown
We are still doing adoptions during the lockdown, but the process has been adapted to the guidelines. All meets are being done outdoors, being conscious of social distancing, and home checks are being done virtually.
This big, sweet guy is Walker! He is 3-4 yrs old, and loves to explore with his nose. After spending his initial time with us at a training facility, Walker now lives in a foster home with four older Shepherds. He will do best in a home with someone who has prior experience with German Shepherds and is committed to continuing his training.

fostering during lockdown
We are so very grateful to everyone who has reached out and offered to foster during the shut-down. Currently all our fosters have homes. As a foster-based rescue, our foster parents have to be able to continue fostering until the dog is adopted. If you are interested in fostering and can continue to foster as you go back to regular life, please let us know. Many dogs are in need as the shelters are closing to the public. If you are available for short-term fostering, then please contact rescues that operate shelters, or your local city or county shelter may have a program for temporary fostering of shelter dogs.
Thank you all once again, and please all take care during this time.
