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. You can read more about what is involved in being a foster family here.


Is your New Year’s resolution to foster a dog this year? Meet Tino! Look at his adorable curly tail.  He is probably a Jack Russell Terrier mix who is 3 years old and about 14 pounds.  He really likes other dogs but can be shy with people until he knows them. He walks great on leash and seems to be house trained.

Want to foster? Please email us at [email protected] if you would be interested in meeting and fostering Tino.


Feather has had the bad luck of being bounced around from foster to foster and even one home and it has never been her fault. It is time for her to be able to settle into a family. She is currently in a kennel but we bring her home whenever possible and she is just a pure pleasure to have around.

Little Jenny is all of 5.25 pounds and about 7 years old.  Jenny is a very shy dog and took a whole 3 months to come out of her shell in her foster home, but now regularly comes to seek pets and ear scratches and be held, but she still spends much of her time in her crate with the door open.  Jenny doesn’t walk on leash but enjoys outings in her carrier.  She enjoys wandering around the back yard with the other dogs in her home.  Jenny likes dogs and is fine with cats.  Jenny is pee-pad trained.

Jenny is looking for a foster-to-adopt home with shy dog experience that will give her all the time she needs to settle in and feel comfortable in her new home, and consider adopting her once she has settled.
