Grateful Dogs Rescue (GDR), a volunteer-run 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, was founded in 1990 by Michelle Parris, a former SF Animal Care & Control (SF ACC) volunteer. She made it her mission to rescue SF ACC shelter dogs not made available for adoption, and that mission continues today.
Rather than letting these dogs be euthanized, Grateful Dogs Rescue saves as many as possible by fostering them until loving homes are found. In recent years they have expanded their mission to include other Bay Area shelters.
GDR is the oldest all breed rescue group in the San Francisco Bay area. The Grateful Dogs Rescue adoption procedure is designed to find a good match between the dog and adopter. Their goal is a happy human and happy dog in a “forever home.”
