The Dog Squad is a San Diego based, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization run by a group of dedicated volunteers. We take dogs from overcrowded, local shelters and find them loving, permanent homes. We are one of the few local rescues that take all breeds, sizes and ages.

A Note to our Friends and Supporters:
Thank you for hanging in there while we went on hiatus to reorganize our group. We have freshened up our Board and our commitments. Please see our “About Us” page to meet our dynamic new team. We are excited to once again step-up and step-in to help improve the lives of shelter dogs throughout San Diego. Our monthly adoption events for the county shelter in Carlsbad will resume in the month of November. We will continue to take on the challenge of finding permanent and loving homes for deserving shelter dogs of various (mixed) breeds, sizes and ages. In addition to this, we will be putting forth new efforts to educate children and adults alike on various animal welfare issues. We plan to focus on topics that address the root cause of dog overpopulation. Our aim is to speak in classrooms, libraries, Boys and Girls Clubs and similar organizations. Please let us hear from you if you would like for us to speak with your group. Finally, we plan to ramp up our fundraising efforts so that we can be a resource for other non-profit groups that foster dogs with medical challenges. A homeless dog’s fate is bleak for those that require medical care or surgery. But even minimal funds can make a difference when an otherwise healthy dog is challenged with a correctable medical issue.
A homeless shelter dog will always be faced with the grim chance of encountering the “end of the road.” But rescue groups, foster homes, and charitable donations can form the path to a dog’s new beginning and a second chance at life.
The Dog Squad is continually inspired by your charitable support and ongoing encouragement. We couldn’t do it without you and we are grateful for your compassion.
