Welcome to Upward Dog Rescue

Video || Wings of Rescue – April 26, 2014

Welcome to our pack, we’re glad you’re here! Upward Dog Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in San Diego County dedicated to saving, rehabilitating, and re-homing homeless dogs in Southern California. We are a volunteer-based, all-breed rescue and believe all dogs deserve to be loved and cared for.  Our mission is to provide care, including vaccinations and spay and neuter surgery, and ultimately find forever homes for:
  • Dogs in overcrowded Southern California county and city shelters that otherwise would be euthanized;
  • Stray, homeless street dogs from Ensenada, Rosarito and Tijuana, Mexico.
  • Dogs surrendered by their owners due to illness / death, foreclosure, or otherwise due to financial hardship.

All of our dogs are privately fostered, and not in a central shelter or facility. We believe foster homes are the best environment for our rescued dogs, where they can receive daily walks, obedience training, and lots of love until a home is found.

We are are 100% dedicated to the preservation of life and all of the funding we raise and the donations we receive goes directly to the dogs. Thank you for choosing to adopt your next best friend. Please browse through our website and make suggestions on what type of information you would like to see on our website. Contact us today or if you have seen a dog you would like to meet, fill out an application. Thank you for caring & sharing!
