Doting on dogs isn't ruff in this city, with hundreds of luxury dog hotels, rooftop dog cocktail parties, and specialty dog restaurants. San Francisco has truly gone to the dogs! Of course, a city with such robust puppy-loving has the dog organizations, shelters, non-profits, and pup associations to keep the city's prized jewels safe.
Of them, Family Dog Rescue is one of the most popular. They rescue pups of all sizes, breeds, and personalities and then work hard to match them with the humans that fit them best. This organization is 100 percent donation based, but still managed to re-home over 800 dogs in 2017. They offer adoption services, shelter and fostering programs, and even dog-enrichment programs!
Enter the next well-known program, Wonder Dog Rescue. Beginning as a Boston Terrier rescue group, it's grown into a group that rescues all breeds! Though there's no physical shelter, the organization works hard to find foster homes for every pup in their care while they await adoption. They specialize in pups that are at risk due to medical issues and those beloved pups who need care and compassion near the end of their lives.
Another organization, Rocket Dog Rescue, is a bay-area dog organization that's run only by volunteers. They specialize in saving pups from death at over-crowded shelters and finding them happy, fur-ever homes. Because of this, they've saved the lives of over 8,100 pups!
