Grateful Dogs Rescue is looking for San Francisco bay area foster homes for the dogs posted below. These dogs URGENTLY need foster homes. They are at risk of euthanization at the San Francisco Animal Care and Control Shelter. The Grateful Dogs Rescue evaluators met these dogs and have evaluations on each. Grateful Dogs Rescue believes that getting them out of the shelter and into a loving family will prove that they are very much adoptable! They need temporary foster homes until adopters can be found.

We appreciate your help getting the word out about these wonderful dogs who need to be rescued from the shelter so they won't be euthanized.


Tucker Is Looking For A Foster Home
Tucker is a sweet dog, with no signs of possessiveness with food or toys.

Tucker was very playful bouncing after the balls and was fine with all handling - teeth, ears, feet, etc. 

He was a bit startled when the Grateful Dogs Rescue volunteer evaluator started jumping next to him, but settled after the initial slight startle. Tucker kept pausing to listen to the noise outside the yard and when they went on a walk, he pulled on leash and was fine with the traffic and noise.

Tucker kept wanting to check all the women that walked past. Note: the ball and toy in the photos are a tiny ball and small toy in case he starts looking large in the pics!

Grateful Dogs Rescue incurs substantial medical and other costs in rescuing our dogs. In order to recoup some of these costs, we must charge an adoption fee. The adoption fee for Tucker is $200.00

If you are interested in adopting Tucker, please complete our online adoption application at http://gratefuldogsrescue.org/AdoptionProcess. One of our volunteers will get back to you. Adoptions are local, confined to the San Francisco Bay Area.
