Who We Are

New Page 1

Rocket Dog Rescue is a group of dedicated volunteers who save animals from death at over crowded shelters, in cases of neglect, severe trauma, or where there is no hope of rescue.
We open our hearts and homes to provide temporary care for these dogs until they are placed in loving homes.

See the inspiring story of Pali Boucher the founder of Rocket Dog Rescue in San Francisco. Before she could save hundreds and hundreds of dogs, she had to save herself. Rocket Dogs Pali Boucher - The unofficial Patron Saint of Lost Causes, a tattooed and street-savvy animal lover saves dogs from certain death and matches them with grateful families. Witness the unique way she reaches out to embrace two- and four-legged friends. View Our Story Here!

How Can You Help?

Rocket Dog Rescue needs Temporary foster homes for dogs and puppies in the San Francisco Bay Area! We rescue dogs and puppies that are to be put to death at overcrowded shelters. As a foster home, you would provide a safe, stable, loving temporary home for a deserving animal that needs your help. We provide basic veterinary care, spay, vaccines and food (if you need). We work very hard to place the dog, and would never leave you "stranded" with an animal. We hold adoption events every Sunday in San Francisco and a few times a month, on the Peninsula. Fosters are required to attend, at least two, events a month with their foster dog.

Fostering is an incredibly rewarding experience. Although you may have a shoe (or two) chewed, or a favorite carpet stained, the gifts that you receive from fostering are priceless! Nothing compares to the feeling you have when picking up a sweet little soul in your arms who would have died needlessly, if not for your help ... the gentle eyes full of love, trust and gratitude ... the joy of seeing your foster dog find her/his forever family

Yes, it can be hard to give them up, but you get to help decide where the dog goes, we are all working on this together! (Of course, if there is no way you can part with your rescue pup, you can always adopt!). And when you let them go to that special home, all the work and love you put in is all worth it! When you see you former foster pup walking down the street or you get an email update or see a picture on our Facebook page and the new family is so happy, your heart will sing with joy.. it is truly a gift to be involved with rescue of animals, so open your heart, and become a foster home for a good dog today!
