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.
Say hello to Byron
Byron is a simply adorable senior Chihuahua mix. He is about 11-12 years old and 8 pounds.
Byron is a lovely companion who always wants to be on his dog bed close by when you are home. He rarely barks, uses the dog door and is totally house trained.
He enjoys short walks but moseys along fairly slow. He also likes napping in the sun! His preferred place to sleep at night is on the bed but not under the covers; he is also fine in a dog bed nearby. Byron has a loud heart murmur, but does not currently need meds for it.
Learn more about Byron 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.”
