April 15th, 2024 - Gay 'Dog' Dad Playdate

Ever find yourself at the dog park, watching your pup have a blast while you're sorta... just standing there? Yeah, me too. I mean, I love seeing my dog around like a maniac, but it'd be cool to meet other gay 'dog' dads while she has her fun. Join us in Alamo Square Park for this week's meetup and be part of a growing community of gay 'dog' dads in San Francisco.

April 20th, 2024 - Mobile Vaccine Clinic

For San Francisco Bay Area residents living in underserved San Francisco neighborhoods, barriers to basic veterinary care can be difficult to overcome. Our Mobile Vaccine Clinic offers no-cost preventative veterinary services to help families provide for their pets and ensure that animals remain in their loving homes.

NOTE: I have volunteered here and the clinic is well run. Make sure to get there early - the wait can be up to 2 hours.

Our Bulldog Meetup Group meets at Crissy Field monthly to socialize our dogs and ourselves. It's a great opportunity to meet new people and new dogs. With the growing popularity of the breed, we get a lot of people who come out just to meet others and ask questions about being a bulldog owner, etc.

Rocket Dog Rescue is partnering with Hawk Creek Farm and Golden Bridges Aftercare for one incredible event! Not only will we have dogs to adopt and foster, but there will be a plant sale to benefit us!

This is an opportunity for Frenchie's and their humans to get together for socialization and exercise. This is a new park without the gravel so it should be better for our pups.
