Adoptable Senior Dog of the Week: Joan

Where do you go when you're feeling low? #RescueRow!

Where should you go when you're feeling low? Rescue Row. Where can you find the kind of love that is unconditional? Rescue Row. We can verify there is lots of loving companionship waiting for you on Rescue Row in San Francisco.

The unveiling of this special place for adoptable pets happened on Saturday, but if you are looking to bring some love and sunshine into your life, today, as part of Maddie's Pet Adoption Days, adoption fees are waived at the SFSPCA, Muttville Senior Dog Rescue, Animal Care and Control of San Francisco, and Northern California Family Dog Rescue.

Head on down to Alabama between 15th and 16th Streets in San Francisco!  Here are scenes from Saturday:
