North Star Rescue is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization based in the San Francisco Bay Area dedicated to the welfare of small companion animals. We are the only rescue organization in the San Francisco Bay Area specifically dedicated to all species of pet rodents and rabbits. North Star Rescue provides a variety of services to help small companion animals, including: Rescue and Foster Services for California Shelters, Public Adoptions of Small Animals, Behavioral Advice, Educational Events and More. Unlike a traditional shelter, North Star Rescue has no central location. We are a network of foster homes run by dedicated volunteers who have united under the common goal of keeping small animals from being euthanized when they have nowhere else to go.

Our website offers information on how you can adopt your next small pet from North Star Rescue, care information for a variety of species, and up to date information on current projects with our rescue and news about small animal welfare. Thank you for taking the time to visit, and remember...

Make Adoption your First Option!
