Mimi is ready for a forever home! Mimi and her foster mom bonded almost immediately - after a 5 min tummy rub & nice dinner with speckles of chicken, Mimi became her BFF! She's a "sticky" girl - she loves following her foster mom and going where ever she goes. Luckily she is a little thing at about 7 pounds and 3-4 years old so she fits in ones bag. She's a mom but acts like a little girl - playful, energetic and so smart! She talks when a stranger/dog walks by but quiets up when you say "QUIET"... she loves to eat, sleep & play and she rides well in car. Every time her foster mom returns home, she just jumps up/down/spins/dances, and gives tons of wet kisses, so happy & passionate! She pees/poops outside, and occasionally pees on the pee pad still. She's perfect for an active dog to do everything with, or cuddle with for R/R.
Rescue Group Info...
Grateful Dogs Rescue, a non-profit organization, was founded over 20 years ago by Michelle Parris, a former SF Animal Care & Control (SFACC) volunteer. She made it her mission to rescue SFACC shelter dogs not made available for adoption because they needed some medical help or some behavioral training. Rather than letting these dogs be euthanized, Grateful Dogs Rescue saves as many shelter dogs as possible by fostering these special-needs dogs until a loving home is found.
Our dogs live in nurturing foster homes provided by volunteers. If you are interested in adopting one of our Grateful dogs, please complete our adoption application. One of our volunteers will get back to you.
The Grateful Dogs Rescue adoption procedure is designed to find a good match between the dog and adopter. Our goal is a happy human and happy dog in a "forever home." The adoption procedure includes an application, interview, home inspection, and an adoption fee. The adoption fee helps to cover spay/neuter, shots and other medical care given before the dog is made available for adoption.
Adoptions are local, confined to the San Francisco Bay Area, including San Mateo County, Santa Clara, and Marin County, except in unusual circumstances.
