This year's event will be bigger and better than ever. It is expected that a total of 65 groups will be in 80 locations throughout the weekend. The adoption goal has been set at 3,000. (Last year 2,312 dogs and cats were placed in loving new homes.)

It's a gorgeous day today and time to come out and meet you new best friend. Many of our great dogs will be there and they want to meet you. (Click on each dogs image for more info). All of these dogs were rescued from the SF Animal Care and Control shelter when they were not made available for adoption. They are being fostered with Grateful Dogs Rescue volunteers until they are adopted.
Addie is a lovely sable-colored chihuahua with a curled tail. She weighs
around eight pounds and is one year old. Addie is currently in a foster home with a Grateful Dogs Rescue volunteer until she is adopted. Addie is calm, friendly, affectionate and easy to leash up. She is not barky and is house-trained. Addie enjoys sniffing everything she
encounters and has lots of tail wags and kisses.
Grateful Dogs Rescue is holding an adoption event at Sports Basement Potrero this Saturday, May 12th from 11:00 – 2:00 (for complete details click here). Gus is a dog who was rescued from the San Francisco Animal Care and Control shelter and has been in foster care with a Grateful Dogs Rescue volunteer. He is now ready to be adopted and if you are interested in meeting him, please come out to the adoption event. For Gus' profile, scroll down below his photo,
Gus is a delightful dachshund mix who is about two or three years old. Gus has a heart of gold (behaves and looks older though), he's gentle, shy at first, but quickly warms up and gains confidence with people around him. This friendly dog will thrive in a home that will give him lots of exercise, lots of care, attention and love. A calm environment is preferred for Gus, he loves cuddling under blankets in bed, and a backyard with a doggy door is a huge plus (loud or sudden noises frighten him, and he will bark if he is afraid or feels unsafe, (rain/thunder/lightening, street noises, mail carriers). At about thirteen punds, Gus is mostly house-trained. He would be fine with other dogs, but would need to be in a home with older children, due to his shyness. Gus is high-spirited, attentive, gentle and playful, dependent on others, and very people-centered. Gus would not do well if left home alone for long periods, but would love lots of exercise, occasional cheese and playtime. All Gus needs is another chance, and he will be your best friend forever.
Maddie’s Fund® is a family foundation which is funded by the founder of Workday and PeopleSoft, Dave Duffield, and his wife, Cheryl. Maddie’s Fund is helping to create a no-kill nation where all healthy and treatable shelter dogs and cats are guaranteed a loving home.
To achieve this goal, Maddie’s Fund is investing its resources in building community collaborations where animal welfare organizations come together to develop successful models of lifesaving; in veterinary colleges to help shelter medicine become part of the veterinary curriculum to train veterinarians to save the lives of sick and injured dogs and cats in animal shelters; and in the implementation of a national effort to promote accountability and transparency in animal shelter operations. Maddie’s Fund is named after the family’s beloved Miniature Schnauzer who passed away in 1997. Visit their website at www.maddiesfund.org
