Wonder Dog’s current lifesaving mission is a synthesis of 30 years of rescue work. Our founder began in dog rescue in 1990 and started a Boston Terrier rescue in San Francisco. As the organization grew, so also did our ability to help other dogs in need. Today, we rescue all types of small dogs, from 6 weeks to 16 years!  All of our dogs live in foster homes while awaiting adoption. There they are given the love and support they need to transition into their forever homes. In addition to our work in San Francisco, we now have a sanctuary in Pennrove, CA.

We also rescue dogs who are at the greatest risk of euthanasia in the shelters due to medical issues, both physical and emotional. While some of these dogs continue on to being adopted, many remain with us as foster/hospice, or fospice dogs… beloved dogs who need care and compassion at the end of their lives.
