In 2006, they merged with Second Chance Animal Rescue in Marin County, enabling them to expand their rescue efforts and save more animals.

Over the years they've found homes for over 1,000 animals a year from Bay Area shelters; their network of foster homes throughout the region allows them to take the time to learn about the dog, provide basic training, and ensure a good match for happy lifelong companionship.
