Rocket Dog Rescue (RDR) is a volunteer based organization serving the greater Bay Area, dedicated to saving homeless and abandoned dogs from overcrowded animal shelters. 

RDR also help dogs from other areas that have compelling situations where they're in danger of abuse, neglect or euthanasia. Rocket Dog Rescue places dogs into temporary foster homes where they are socialized, spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and treated for any medical or behavioral conditions limiting their adoptability.

RDR actively searches for permanent homes for its foster dogs by producing and distributing photo-biographic posters, by hosting an actively updated website and by organizing mobile adoption fairs and special events that provide exposure to potential adopters.

Rocket Dog Rescue also provides assistance to individuals and animal rescue groups fostering dogs in need of permanent new homes.

Back in 2001, Pali Boucher founded Rocket Dog Rescue in honor of Leadbelly, a dog she bailed out of a San Francisco city shelter and ultimately credited with turning her own life around. Legendary as a friend of the dogs in the overcrowded, under-resourced Northern California city and county shelters, she's built a notable network of volunteers dedicated to saving them, at the rate of hundreds of dogs a year. more »
sadie Rocket Dog Rescue founder Pali Boucher  has become something of a local legend, a constant presence at San Francisco Animal Care and Control, where she's earned the respect and cooperation of the staff for saving the lives of dogs in imminent danger of being euthanized. An all-volunteer organization that pulls dogs from overcrowded shelters around the Bay Area and fosters them until their forever homes present themselves, Rocket Dog has a stellar track record of lifesaving—more than 350 dogs in 2010 alone.  more »
