Dog Boarding In Palo Alto

The Dog Kennel Alternative

Sit a Dog, Save a Life

Sit a Dog, Save a Life lets you raise money for local dogs-in-need by doing something you do already... asking your friends, family and neighbors to watch your dog while you travel, instead of leaving him in a kennel! Look for sitters in Palo Alto with the Rover Donation Badge for one of these nonprofits, and a portion of your fee will be donated.

Northern California Sled Dog Rescue

NorSled rescues, fosters and finds homes for unwanted, abandoned and abused Northern breed dogs: Siberian Huskies, Alaskan Malamutes, Samoyeds, and mixes of these breeds.

NorSled works directly with shelters in most Northern California counties, and also if there is space, shelters in other Northern California areas, Central California and Western Nevada. In some circumstances NorSled may take owner surrenders, but they usually work through the shelter system. They work closely with other Nordic Breed rescues in other areas, and can refer owners in crisis to the rescue nearest them.
