Business Overview

Our Story

DOG. From California's overcrowded municipal shelters to the street dogs of Mexico, Family Dog Rescue gives dogs in need a second chance. We welcome these dogs into our San Francisco shelter and foster program, providing them with medical care, temperament analysis, spay/neuter, vaccinations and finally, a loving family of their own. Family Dog Rescue is proud to save dogs of all kinds, including puppies, adults, mixed breeds, purebreds, and dogs with disabilities.

HUMAN. Our experienced, compassionate family of shelter staff and volunteers ensure that our dogs receive proper enrichment and socialization from the time they enter our program to the day they find their new home. Our adoption process looks past any formulaic checklist of the perfect dog owner. We treat our potential adopters just as we treat our dogs - on an individual basis. We are proud to connect people to their perfect dog, creating families with every adoption.

FAMILY. We believe that when you adopt a dog, a family is created. Through events and social media outreach, we've created a community-wide connection between Family Dog supporters, adopters, volunteers, and canine alumni. Together, we advocate for greater public awareness about responsible dog ownership and celebrate the connection and love that rescue dogs give openly.  

Family Dog Rescue was founded in 2010 by Angela Padilla, a young mom battling breast cancer. As a grassroots, 501(c)(3) dog rescue organization, we save over 1,000 dogs per year from certain euthanasia and place them with loving families. 

Why Work With Us?

About us Family Dog Rescue is a grassroots 501(c)(3) nonprofit animal shelter in San Francisco. In 2018, we saved over 1,200 dogs and placed them in loving homes. We are proud and honored to have saved over 6,000 dogs since our founding in 2010.
