It’s official! The name “Rescue Row”
was approved by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors on May 6, 2014! Everyone, and their furry companions, is invited to join the ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate at 10:30 am on Saturday, May 31. After the ceremony, help inaugurate Rescue Row by participating in a red carpet pet parade. Dress up your pet in a fun, creative outfit and come join the festivities. There will also be a vegetarian BBQ, beer garden, and music on Rescue Row from 10 am to 6 pm.
Rescue Row is the honorary name of the section of Alabama Street between 15th and 16th streets, and it is home to the following animal welfare organizations: The San Francisco SPCA
, Muttville Senior Dog Rescue
, Northern California Family Dog Rescue
, and San Francisco Animal Care and Control
This is the first of its kind in the country, and having so many rescue organizations in one area makes it easy for adopters to find their perfect match.
The Rescue Row ribbon cutting will also be our official kickoff for Maddie's Pet Adoption Days
, May 31 - June 1. Adoption fees will be waived for all animals, all weekend! More than 100 Bay Area shelters will participate, including all four Rescue Row organizations, and the goal is to find homes for more than 10,000 animals in two days. Don’t miss out on the fun!
