​Golden Gate Rescue Center is a non-profit organization operating to provide exceptional care, to rehabilitate, to re-home, and ultimately give a second chance to large breed and senior dogs in need.
While we primarily take concentrations of large breed and senior dogs from overwhelmed shelters, we also take strays, owner surrenders, and any other dog in need that comes our way.
The need for rescue is strong. However, we are foster based meaning we have no facility to house our rescue dogs. We need people to open their homes and their hearts to animals that desperately need a chance.
Dog of the week


Leo is our dog of the week. He is approximately one year old. His breed is a bit of a mystery to us, but we know one thing for sure: He LOVES to run.

His favorite thing to do is to work for reward. He has been learning lots of canine body language in his foster home. He's also been working on basic obedience, agility, and confidence building.

He can be a bit shy with new people, but sharing a few snacks is all it takes to become best friends.

He will require a fenced yard and no children. Whoever decides to give this boy some patience and understanding will have the loyalty of this guy forever.

Our mission is strictly non-profit and is supported by the generosity of people like you. Any contributions are tax-deductible and greatly appreciated by our board and all of our beloved rescue dogs.
