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.
Meet our country girl, Jolene Marie! Jolene is an 88lb English Coonhound/German Shepherd mix and is about 1.7 years old. She is very smart and catches on quickly. She’s definitely a people person, and is super affectionate and sweet with people she knows. It doesn’t take her long to size you up and then love you forever.
Find out more about Jolene and our other available dogs.
Curious about fostering?
Fostering is a vital part of the process of giving a rescue a second chance. For many dogs it is the place where they learn to feel safe and secure. It is also a very rewarding experience for the foster parent. In the words of one of our volunteers:
“We thoroughly enjoy seeing the transformation from a sometimes sad, lonely, sick or un-trusting dog into a beautiful pet ready to share their love with another family and we love giving the gift of a best friend to other people and families.”
