The Rescued Dog is a non-profit 501(c)3, all-breed dog rescue in San Diego, CA. We consist of a network of fosters and volunteers dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating dogs in need throughout California and Mexico. We are committed to placing dogs in loving, forever homes and educating adopters on the responsibilities of dog ownership. The Rescued Dog strives to work with local area shelters and other rescue groups to create a better world for homeless pets.
The founders of The Rescued Dog forged our bond during our volunteer work together at a local dog rescue. We recognized in each other a mutual respect for our human friends and the dogs we were helping to rescue. When the time came to start our own rescue, our collective mission was clear: save at-risk dogs from high-kill shelters and place them in loving, forever homes for the benefit of the dogs and humans alike. We believe the best way to end pet overpopulation and animal cruelty is a unified front with local shelters, other rescue groups and the community.
While The Rescued Dog is currently a foster-based rescue, our long-term goal is to have a kennel and training facility, which will enable us to increase our number of rescues and take time to train and, if needed, rehabilitate dogs in need.
The founders of The Rescued Dog are committed to saving the right dogs for the right people, and offering support and education to ensure a successful forever situation for both our dogs and the humans who adopt them.

TRD is a fantastic organization with which to volunteer - all of the dogs in their care are clearly loved and spoiled by each foster family. Having only been in operation for a couple years, TRD has done amazing things and made a huge impact in the rescue world!
