Now in our thirteenth year, RDR is stronger than ever, and has saved the lives of over 7,000 animals. Are you looking to adopt a dog in the San Francisco Bay Area? Look no further!

About Our Rescue Group:

We rescue not for politics, fortune, or fame, my friend… but for the kiss of a dog.

Rocket Dog Rescue, the name says it all. We are an all-volunteer nonprofit group dedicated to saving homeless and abandoned animals from euthanasia in overcrowded Bay Area shelters. We literally give them a second chance at life. And everybody deserves a second chance.

Rocket Dog Rescue places non-aggressive dogs into temporary foster homes where they are socialized, spay/neutered, vaccinated, and treated for any medical or behavioral conditions which would otherwise limit their adoptability. We then actively seek out permanent quality homes for these deserving animals through our volunteer network, online adoption page, weekend adoption fairs, and neighborhood poster campaigns.

Founded in 2001 by Bay Area animal activist Pali Boucher, Rocket Dog Rescue is a 501-C3 nonprofit corporation supported completely by donations. Our all-volunteer, home-based organization guarantees that your donations are completely focused on saving dogs.

Rocket Dog Rescue’s ultimate goal is to help create a world where all companion animals have loving and permanent homes. A world where no good-natured companion animal, no matter what their age, are killed in shelters because they are considered surplus or unadoptable.
Whether you are visiting our site in hopes of adopting, volunteering or donating – welcome and thank you for your support!

Rocket Dog Rescue’s mobile adoption events are your chance to come meet Rocket Dogs currently for adoption. We’re out and about to help educate people about dog rescue and help match great people with wonderful companion animals.

Our Adoption Process:

Adopting a rescued animal is a lifetime commitment!
Adopters must complete an adoption application (http://www.rocketdogrescue.org/adopt/adoption-application/), have a personal interview and possible home visit prior to adopting a Rocket Dog.
There is a non-refundable $240.00 adoption fee which helps us defer the cost of spay/neutering, vaccinations and microchipping.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
