We’re proud to announce our first grant award from the Binky Foundation, which provides support to new organizations, such as Sanctuary Hostel stray dog rescue, that recognize the importance of business training and planning as well as passion for the animals to create successful, long-term operations. Binky Foundation liked our Business/Action plan and the business and animal rescue training our senior volunteer staff achieved this year.
The funding from this grant will go to our construction fund! We also won a grant from 4Imprint for merchandise from their web store. Thank you to our volunteer Sadiqa for kick starting our grant application process and we hope to see more funding soon.
Construction Fundraising Progress
With the Binky Foundation award and other donations and matching we’ve received this year, we are up from $19,400 (Dec 2023) to $31,400 (July 2023) saved for construction. Our goal for the end of 2023 is $75,000. Your support can get us to our next target amount of $57,000 which is the next room – the Cat Café!
A Stray’s Life – Animated Video
Sanctuary Hostel’s goal is to do much more than animal rescue – our mission is to address the root cause of stray animals through education and integration with local communities. With the help of our volunteers and some local kids as voice actors, we created this video to better explain the problem and the strategy behind Sanctuary Hostel. Thank you to Sara, Nicole, Ace, Karla, and Kathie for making this vision a reality!
Adoption Success Stories!
We love this transformation of Before and After adoption!
This proves in the power of a loving home for stray dog rescue organizations.

Pet Supply Donation Drive – TBD
Sanctuary Hostel will be hosting a Pet Supply Donation Drive to help animals in need! We need to confirm our dates but this will be our first donation drive in San Diego and taking donations to help our local rescue partner Foster Fail.
Rescues are often in need of supplies. Sanctuary Hostel wants to support rescues and fill their stockings to help more animals. We’ll be looking for pet food and treats, cleaning supplies, and essential supplies. More details to come very soon! Stay tuned!
