The Bay Area’s strong network of animal adoption organizations is one of the key reasons SFACC is able to maintain a high level of success. Whether in response to environmental disasters, urban intrusion, cases of displacement, loss, neglect, or abuse, our adoption partners expand SFACC’s capacity to rescue animals by accepting animals from us and rehabilitating, fostering, and finding them forever homes, or releasing them back to the wild.

Each year, Friends of SFACC provides more than $50,000 in grants to many of these critical partners. These Adoption Partner Grants help to ensure that these organizations have the resources to support their work, and  keep the Bay Area rescue community engaged with SFACC, widening our collective reach and expanding our potential adopter base. Some of the animals that our adoption partners take on are among the hardest to save: animals that need extensive medical and behavioral rehabilitation. The work each organization does is remarkably resource intensive. We are grateful for the special-needs work each organization does and their unwavering dedication to saving lives.
