Wonder Dog Rescue

Wonder Dog’s current lifesaving mission is a synthesis of 30 years of rescue work, starting with 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 a home environment while awaiting adoption. There they receive medical care and are spayed or neutered prior to adoption.

In January 2020 we established a sanctuary in Sonoma county, allowing us to concentrate more closely on their quality of life and well being. We also adopted some companion farm animals who grace us with their antics and love!

Our Mission

Our mission is to alleviate the suffering of animals through direct action. We achieve this through the rescue and rehabilitation of dogs and puppies who come into our program. We also strive to help the most underserved, the aged, those with severe medical needs and those who have suffered trauma. We provide compassionate hospice care to dogs at the end of their lives.
