Rocket Dog Rescue needs home sweet homes

ChiliS.F. Animal Care and Control is overwhelmed with shelter dogs right now, and Rocket Dog Rescue is trying to help.

Rocket Dog Rescue is a volunteer-based organization serving the greater Bay Area, dedicated to saving homeless and abandoned dogs from overcrowded animal shelters. The rescue group places non aggressive dogs into temporary foster homes where they are socialized, neutered, vaccinated, and treated for any medical or behavioral conditions that may limit their adoptability.

Because Rocket Dog Rescue does not have a shelter, they rely solely on a foster home network to provide safe and stable temporary homes to get dogs ready for adoption. Rocket Dog is short on foster homes, which means that perfectly wonderful dogs will be put down simply because there aren’t places to shelter them.
Right now, short-term fostering is urgently needed to save deserving dogs. These would be very temporary situations – just long enough to save the dog’s life, and until Rocket Dog can find room in one of their other foster homes (or a permanent home).

The more people who open their homes for fostering, the more dogs that can be saved. It’s a rewarding way to give to the organization and it’s a critical part of what they do. More important, it’s fun!

To help out immediately, please contact Pali Boucher at 415-756-8188 or Required fostering forms can be downloaded from
Founded in 2001, Rocket Dog Rescue’s ultimate goal is to create a world where all companion animals have loving and permanent homes and where no good-natured dogs, no matter what their age, are killed in shelters because they are considered to be surplus or unadoptable.
