Help Save the Lives of Dogs with Rocket Dog Rescue’s $5 Fridays

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news


This Friday is $5 Friday ($5riday, for short), Rocket Dog Rescue’s new monthly event! The last Friday of every month, we are asking people to make a $5 donation to help us keep up with the never-ending medical costs that are a very real part of the work that we do: rescuing dogs throughout the Bay Area that have been abused and/or neglected, or that are on a shelter’s PTS (Put To Sleep) list.

Some of the medical costs we incur are for routine (spaying / neutering) procedures; unfortunately, far too many are for life-saving surgery and treatment due to horrible abuse or neglect. This is in addition to the everyday costs of travel/transport of endangered dogs throughout the Bay Area, food, and supplies (beds, crates, leashes, hosting adoption events, etc.).

To make an online, tax-deductible donation – or an automatic recurring monthly donation – of just five dollars, please visit this site.

Rocket Dog Rescue, voted Best Non Profit by the SF Bay Guardian 2010, 2011, and 2012, is an entirely volunteer-based organization. Founded in 2001, Rocket Dog Rescue’s ultimate goal is to create a world where all companion animals have loving and permanent homes and where no good-natured dogs, no matter what their age, are killed in shelters because they are considered to be surplus or un-adoptable.
