NORCAL RESCUES: Family Dog Rescue


source: Family Dog Rescue

At Family Dog Rescue, we are committed to living up to our motto: DOG + HUMAN = FAMILY

DOG:  We save family-friendly dogs of all shapes and sizes.  We give priority to deserving-but-overlooked dogs in California’s overcrowded municipal shelters.  Our mission can also take us across the country and around the world.  All dogs are carefully screened for good behavior and receive proper veterinary care, including spay/neuter surgery and vaccinations.  We seek out kid-friendly and dog-friendly dogs who can get along with everyone in your family.  While we do not accept dogs with a history of aggression, we are happy to save the underdogs, including blind/deaf, disabled, and shy dogs whom we believe have the potential to be ideal family dogs.
  We are excited to find adopters who share our love of dogs.  Our adoption process is a one-on-one interaction that looks past any formulaic checklist of the perfect dog owner.  We encourage families with young children to adopt a rescue dog, rather than buy from a puppy mill or backyard breeder.  We are proud to be the “first dog” for new or inexperienced adopters who have carefully weighed the responsibilities of dog ownership and are ready to start families of their own.
  We believe that when you adopt your new dog, a family is created.  We offer a two-week trial period to ease the stress of adoption and allow our adopters to feel confident in their decision.  We have an experienced, compassionate family of shelter volunteers and staff who ensure that our dogs receive proper enrichment and socialization from the time they enter our program, thus easing the transition to their forever families.  Finally, through events and social media outreach, we strive to create a community-wide family of Family Dog Rescue alumni. We advocate for greater public awareness about the importance of spay/neuter surgery and responsible dog ownership.

Family Dog Rescue is a grassroots-grown, 501(c)(3) dog rescue organization founded in 2010 to save 800+ family-friendly dogs a year at risk of euthanasia and place them with loving forever families. The shelter is located at 255 Alabama St. in San Francisco.

There is something about street dogs, about rescues; they have this knowing sense about them.
