"Grateful Dogs Rescue is an amazing non-profitable organization that gives dogs in need, good forever homes. An example of this is when I got my two dogs Malo and Zorro.
First there is Zorro, who was found by the police wandering in the Bayview District of San Francisco with a chihuahua. The chihuahua got away but Zorro -- who was named Rex then -- was brought to San Francisco Animal Care and Control. He was frightened by just about everything and when he got scared, he’d flatten himself out on the floor, which earned him the nickname Pancake. Because of his anxiety in the ACC kennels, Grateful Dogs Rescue stepped in to help and that was when we were informed that he was up for adoption. My family and I went to a place called Penngrove where he was sent for his anxiety and looking for a loving family to take care of him. In the end he was a cuddly sweetheart and we gave him his forever home.
A year and half later, we heard about Axel. His story began when a back-yard breeder dumped him and two of his siblings off at SF ACC as puppies. Another rescue group deemed Axel too aggressive to take and that’s when Grateful Dogs Rescue stepped in. After a few visits, we snatched him up and renamed him Malo - “the bad one” in Spanish - for his barky, anxious behavior, and that’s how he became part of our family. Now, Malo and Zorro are happily living in my home, going out for walks and being hugged by me and my sister Samantha. They play a huge and important role in my life by always being sweet and being my friends. And though they may sometimes be troublesome, Malo and Zorro make everyday better and happier, because they are amazing in every way.
Thank you so very much Grateful Dogs Rescue and SF ACC for giving my dogs a second chance for a great life. I appreciate all the hard work you do to help dogs in need get a happy life. If it weren’t for you I would have never have gotten my two little wonders, Malo and Zorro."
