Wonder Dog Rescue
Wonder Dog Rescue has a long history of rescuing dogs in need! Our founder, Linda Beenau, was introduced to rescue in 1992. She assisted Nancy Ford, a long-time Boston and Pug rescuer. Over time she formed Bay Area Boston Terrier Rescue. As time went on, the group grew, and began helping dogs of all sizes, shapes and breeds. Wonder Dog Rescue is the synthesis of this progression.
We are a dedicated volunteer group, serving the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond, and rescuing dogs from all over Northern and Central California. Wonder Dog Rescue has saved blind and deaf dogs, puppies as young as two weeks and seniors as old as 15! We offer hospice to special needs and elderly dogs, caring for them until the end of their lives. Each animal has so much to offer… and we learn so much by opening our hearts to these deserving companions.
When a dog comes into rescue he or she is evaluated carefully. All dogs receive vaccinations and are spayed or neutered, and some dogs receive additional medical care or behavior modification. We work with each dog, giving them the love and structure they need to move onward. Dogs stay in foster homes until they are matched with their ideal family. We want these adoptions to be life long, and take this very seriously!
Volunteers help in the transporting of dogs from shelters, socializing & walking, bathing, fostering and assisting at mobiles. Email us if you have even two hours a week and want to make a real difference in these animals' lives.... you won't be sorry!
