Play For A Stray Dog Rescue works to increase the quality of life for dogs without a home. Through our P4AS Family, donors, and BARC Members, we raise money to reach out to Rescue Benchmark of $50,000. Every time we reach out to Benchmark, we rescue a dog from a local shelter and bring it to one of our P4AS ranches to life.

Dog Rescue & Sports Teams

Play For a Stray was the long time vision and dream of Billy Goldstein. For the last 10-years, Billy (aka Coach Billy Bob), has owned and operated the Skyhawks Contra Costa Territory. With the help of his amazing team, Skyhawks quickly became one of the largest Youth Sports Organizations in area.

“For my next adventure, I want to combine my knowledge and passion for sports & working with kids, with my childhood passion of animal rescue” – Coach Billy Bob

Our Mission

Our mission for the last 10-years has been to ensure that every child who passes through our program leaves with the skills, confidence, and passion, to continue to play sports for the rest of their life! That mission continues, but now we will use our teams expertise in running quality youth sports programming to also rescue dogs from Shelters. The P4AS family, donors, sponsors, and partners, will work together to rescue dogs from high kill shelters and bring them to the Play For a Stray Ranch to live out their days in doggy paradise!

-In Memory of Apollo (aka The Woose)

What Is Play for a Stray?

How we raise money for the cause

Sports Programs

Proceeds from Skyhawks Contra Costa, SuperTots Contra Costa, Pack Football, and Sideline Fitness will all go towards rescuing dogs from Shelters and bringing them back to the Play For A Stray Ranch.

BARC Board

The BARC (Bay Area Rescue Committee) is comprised of individual, family, and corporate donors. Every time we reach out revenue goal to rescue a dog, the BARC Board meets to vote on which dog we will be rescuing and bringing back to our ranch. Don’t just donate to a non-profit, be a part of a non-profit with the Play For a Stray BARC Board.

Corporate Sponsors

Our corporate sponsors are a big part of our rescue efforts. We have Corporate Sponsorship levels for companies of all sizes with numerous benefits including: seats on the BARC Board, discounts on Play For A Stray merchandise, visitation rights to the ranch, logo on our website and social media pages, logo on the back of our visitor giveaway calendars and t-shirts, logo on the P4AS Hero Wall of Fame, Naming Rights for Dogs, and more!
