Copper's DreamCopper's Dream loves dogs. They love saving them. They love finding them great homes. They're a San Francisco Bay Area all-breed rescue saving dogs from shelters throughout California. Copper's Dream was founded with the goal to help end the euthanasia of adoptable dogs in the US through increasing public awareness, taking legal action benefiting shelter animals, and by rescuing dogs scheduled for euthanasia and placing them in permanent and loving homes.
Northern California Sled Dog RescueNorSled 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.
Northern California Weimaraner RescueNorthern California Weimaraner Rescue (NCWR) is a non-profit volunteer organization dedicated to the overall welfare of Weimaraners. They rescue, rehabilitate and place abandoned dogs, neglected dogs or dogs whose families can no longer provide care for them.
NCWR attempts to educate prospective and current owners about the breed and responsible pet ownership, while working cooperatively with animal shelters and individuals. While in NCWR care, Weimaraners receive routine medical care, are spayed or neutered and are evaluated by an NCWR volunteer for placement in the most suitable, permanent, loving home.
San Francisco SPCAAs the fourth oldest humane society in the U.S. and the founders of the No-Kill movement, the SF SPCA has always been at the forefront of animal welfare. As a result of our efforts and those of our community partners, San Francisco has the lowest euthanasia rate of any major city in the United States. No adoptable dog or cat in San Francisco goes without a home, even if they have medical or other issues.
TikiHut Akita Rescue AssociationThe TikiHut Akita Rescue Association is a small organization run solely by volunteers, dedicated to rehoming and rehabilitating Akitas. Sadly, they are in business because we live in a throw-away society where people's obsession with material things include their companion animals. Many dogs end up in the shelters because they were picked up as strays or turned in by their owners. The reasons are many, but the outcome for the animals is the same unless a rescue group such as theirs, steps in to intervene.
WOOF Animal RescueWOOF Animal Rescue is a 100% volunteer-based non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing animals in Northern California. With the help of their volunteers, WOOF has rescued numerous dogs from high-kill shelters, trained them as necessary and found wonderful forever homes for them.
