"I joined Rocket Dog in March 2019. After a few months I moved to the East Coast to do my Masters. RDR was a primary reason I was sad to move. When I knew I’d be moving back I was very excited to rejoin RDR! RDR gives me a community, sense of purpose, and so many happy moments with the dogs. I spend most of my time doing sanctuary shifts but I also take dogs on hikes whenever I can and help at adoption events!"

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.
