Hi! My name is Rebecca and I am an animal lover by nature. I grew up surrounded by animals and raised a Border-Collie mix pup to live a long, healthy and happy 16 years! I have walked dogs, house-sat, and cared for all kinds of pets for over 16 years. Obedience classes & agility training courses were part of the growing up process with my own dog, Sara. Mostly we had a fun, goofy time just playing. She went everywhere with me! Since she passed away, I take any chance I can to be around my canine pals. I've always had an affinity for dogs large & small, with boundless energy or a calm disposition. I know how important it is to have your dog(s) well-cared for while you are busy or traveling so I am here to help! I am always up for a leisurely stroll in the neighborhood, brisk walk or challenging hike. Whatever your needs are I can meet them. I feel very fortunate to be able to walk a variety of dogs. It would be my great pleasure to meet your dog and make a new friend!

Dog Boarding in South San Francisco

San Francisco regularly features on lists of the most dog-friendly cities anywhere in the world, which means dog lovers in South San Francisco enjoy easy access to world-class attractions and experiences they can enjoy with their dogs. It also means there’s no shortage of excellent animal welfare groups operating in the local area, working to ensure that every dog gets the chance to find happiness.

Family Dog Rescue is one such group. Founded in 2010, Family Dog Rescue has rescued more than 3,000 pooches and matched them with loving forever homes with their ideal owners. Its work is based on the belief that Dog + Human = Family and that a dog makes a house a home, and the group is committed to providing the care and shelter homeless pets need.

However, Family Dog Rescue is 100% funded by donations. Its ability to continue saving the lives of pets in need depends on its generous adopters, donors, and volunteers, so lend a helping paw if you can.

Wonder Dog Rescue also maintains an unwavering commitment to the homeless dogs of San Francisco. This grrr-eat group specializes in rescuing small breeds of all ages, with those dogs then cared for in loving foster homes while they await adoption. This foster-based approach ensures that rescued pets receive the care and support they need to be able to seamlessly transition into their forever homes.

Just like Family Dog Rescue, Wonder Dog Rescue is always on the lookout for more donations and volunteers. If you’re keen to help dogs in need of a second chance, both these rescue groups are definitely worthy of your support.
