Our Volunteers Rock

Meet Randy!
"I live a short distance from the sanctuary, so it was important to me to be making a contribution to the community in which I live. I quickly began fostering puppies and dogs in my home, and then began participating in fostering and adoption events to share my experiences as a foster with potential adoptive families. The time I spend at the sanctuary, the fostering of animals, and the friendships created with fellow volunteers has become an important facet of my life."

Who We Are

Rocket Dog Rescue saves dogs from abuse, neglect, and death at overcrowded shelters and places them in loving homes. We support pet owners in need in our community, and serve as first responders in emergency animal situations and natural disasters. Funded entirely by donations, we are a volunteer-run, 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Learn about what we do or apply to adopt a dog in the San Francisco Bay Area.
