Our San Francisco Mission District store will be supporting Rocket Dog Rescue through our Tokens for Bags® program. We encourage shoppers to accept a token instead of a bag for purchases, and we donate five cents (the cost of the bag) to a charity of the customer’s choice. We have raised nearly $550,000 for thousands of local nonprofit organizations since 1994 through our Tokens for Bags® program, saving 10.9 million bags from polluting the environment.

Rocket Dog Rescue is a Bay Area all-volunteer & donation ran dog rescue group who rescues abandoned and homeless animals, saving them from euthanasia at overcrowded shelters.

After rescue, the dogs are placed in Rocket Dog’s volunteer foster homes. The rescue dogs are socialized, spay/neutered, vaccinated, and treated for any medical or behavioral issues so that they can be adopted into loving forever homes. Adoption events are held weekly around the Bay Area.
