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.

Please print out a copy of our poster of "Dogs Urgently Needing Foster Homes" and post it at your local dog park, pet store, office and/or coffee shop. 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. Foster Luna (203 KB)

Luna Needs A New Foster Home (She Was Adopted Two Years Ago But Was Returned to GDR)
Luna, with her sticking up ears, tail dipped in white paint and sweet
little face is thirteen pounds of wiggly fun! Affectionate, friendly, loves
kids, about 5 years old, she would be perfect for anyone. She knows
basic commands and listens well. Luna LOVES her treats! She warms to
people quickly with treats in their hand. She is the type of dog that is
ready for anything. The Grateful Dogs Rescue volunteer foster family takes her with them in the car and she rides well. Luna loves to walk and has her own opinion about which way to go. It is
so funny! She very quickly learned the way home and when she has had
enough, she heads for home. Luna has a sweet and gentle nature. She
loves to be near her foster family and just relax. She is very low maintenance. One of
the most endearing things about her is that she likes to sleep under
the covers. She will burrow in and snuggle up! She also sleeps as long
as her foster family does! (a real bonus on weekends!!!) She finds a sunny spot and
lifts her closed eyes to the sun and you know all is right in her world.
When she is excited she leaps like a gazelle! It is too cute. On days her foster family needs to be out of the house for an extended period, Luna has been
trained to use a pee pad. Otherwise, she was easy to train to go in one
spot in the yard with "pee drops". We have fallen in love with her in
just a very short time. If her foster family did not have to travel extensively for
work, she would be a part of their family. She is a keeper!!
