San Francisco, a city of 805,000 people, is the second-most densely populated large city in the U.S., after New York City.
According to the San Francisco Animal Care and Control, about a fourth to one-third of all San Francisco households have at least one dog, for an estimated population of 120,000 to 140,000 dogs living in the city. That’s more dogs than the 112,000 estimate of city children.
