DogPAC of SF is a registered political action committee that focuses on the health and welfare of animals but primarily issues relating to dogs in the City & County of San Francisco and beyond.
Dog advocates are as diverse as the breeds and mutts they care for. But when it comes to caring for animals there is a passionate bond that unites people in a common movement to improve the quality of life with pets. The committee has been recognized as a vanguard in bringing about policies that benefit the larger pet population and the people who care for them.
DogPAC of SF advocates for the most pressing animal welfare issues that include greater access to housing for people with pets, shared use of parks and open space, and adequate City and County services to protect and treat animal populations. We have strong partnerships with animal shelters and rescues and with many organizations and community leaders who share a vision for animal welfare and responsible pet guardianship.
Considered one of the most pet-friendly cities, San Francisco alone has more than 150,000 dogs that are household members or waiting for an adoptive family. The entire SF Bay Area including visitor with their dogs far exceeds this many which warrants flexible policies to accommodate all.
