Muttville Gets Homes For Old Pooches

The sweet faces of older dogs is endearing.  But for those sloughed off for one reason or another, and animal shelter-bound, their outlook is dim.  Fortunately, a San Francisco shelter volunteer started a shelter for these senior pooch citizens called Muttville.

From the website: 
Muttville’s mission is to change the way the world thinks about and treats older dogs and to create better lives for them through rescue, foster, adoption and hospice.

We reach out to senior and special needs rescue dogs; find suitable homes for those dogs that are adoptable; and offer end of life care for those that are not. These are not just shelter dogs; every day, dogs are moved from loving homes to concrete cages because their guardians have died or moved or simply can’t care for them anymore.

If we had our way, no dog would spend its last days in a cold, dark shelter. There is so much love and joy in these dogs! Bringing these special dogs into a home is not only good for the dogs, but such loving, mellow dogs transform the quality of life for the people who adopt or foster them.
