RUFF (Rescues United For Fun) Small-Dog Meetup

Calling San Francisco's SMALL rescue dogs for a meetup on the first Saturday of each month at 11:30 am in Pine Lake Dog Park in Stern Grove.

If you have a small rescue dog and want to meet other rescues and their parents, please join us for off-leash play and schmoozing.

Don't worry if your dog is quirky; ours are, too!

RUFF co-organizer Shannon Bolt of The Domestic Animal has worked with shelter and rescue dogs for years. She specializes in special-needs animals and will be on hand for advice and assistance.

This meetup is for SMALL DOGS UP TO 25 POUNDS ONLY (or who should weigh less than 25 pounds!) — the mutt-ier, the better; but we won't discriminate against purebreds — and their adult people (this is NOT the place for children; many small dogs, especially those with issues, are afraid of kids) are welcome. Please remember to give all the dogs their "space" and ask before giving treats. We'll have a great time!

We socialize in one of the grassy areas west of the parking lot for 30 minutes (look for the RUFF sign), then we take a group walk around the park, so if you come very late, you'll have to chase us!

    What a fun time yesterday! Even with the weird energy in the air, we welcomed a bunch of adorable new RUFFers, and we were so excited Sky and Finn are back in town. Thanks to everyone for making it a great outing!

    I think I can *finally* make it this weekend. Can someone give me more specific directions? I know vaguely where Stern Grove is but that's about it.

      Thanks so much! Barring anything crazy (the first time I tried to attend my car wouldn't start!) we'll be there tomorrow.

    I'm trying to encourage Buko the pug to come back. His female owner took him to RUFF 1-2x. She passed away 1.5 months ago and her husband may be coming with Buko.

    We have had a very busy summer (moved to San Rafael and travel)! We are now training Saturday mornings in Marin (Eevee has begun agility training-we have a looonng way to go, but she loves it). We do hope to make another meetup in the fall! Cheers!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
