San Francisco, California 94124
Family Dog Rescue is dedicated to caring for their family-friendly dogs and ultimately finding them a forever home. They save family-friendly dogs of all shapes and sizes. They give priority to deserving-but-overlooked dogs in California’s overcrowded municipal shelters.
All dogs are carefully screened for good behavior and receive proper veterinary care, including spay/neuter surgery and vaccinations. They seek out kid-friendly and dog-friendly dogs who can get along with everyone in your family.
While they do not accept dogs with a history of aggression, they are happy to save the underdogs, including blind/deaf, disabled, and shy dogs whom they believe have the potential to be ideal family dogs.
They are excited to find adopters who share their love of dogs. Their adoption process is a one-on-one interaction that looks past any formulaic checklist of the perfect dog owner.
They encourage families with young children to adopt a rescue dog, rather than buy from a puppy mill or backyard breeder. They 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.
