Success Story "Mandy" 3537

Success Story "Mandy" 3537

Mutt mom Kelly’s short and sweet note about her senior gal Mandy says enough to warm our hearts:

I adopted Mandy in July 2016. I’m seeing her blossom more every day. She leaps in the air at dinner time, makes Scooby-Doo noises randomly, and snores like the little old lady that she is.

I love her to pieces, and she is an asset to my world.

Thanks to Muttville, for pulling Mandy from a high-kill shelter so I could adopt her.

Success Story "Sadie" 3048

Success Story "Sadie" 3048

Last week, we shared a wonderful tribute written by Carolyn to her daughter and her Muttville dog, Daisy. This week, it’s Carolyn and Sadie’s turn! Enjoy our first success story of the new year:

Happy New Year from Sadie and her family. I know she is thankful to have her forever home with us, and the feeling is a thousand times over for us.

We love her so much, she is my little shadow, likes to follow me, and keep me in her sight, and of course I love it too.

Many thanks for taking such good care of her, and allowing her into my life.

Lots of love and big thanks

Carolyn

Success Story "Daisy" (a.k.a. Dee Dee)

Success Story "Daisy" (a.k.a. Dee Dee)

How sweet is this? Carolyn sent us the story of her daughter Darlene and her Muttvile sweetie Daisy.

Carolyn herself is an “adopted” mutt mom of a Muttville dog named Sadie. Mother and daughter decided each to adopt a dog at around the same time 18 months ago, and both chose a senior from Muttville! Sadly, Darlene’s girl, Daisy, passed away. We’re touched by Carolyn’s tribute to Daisy:

My daughter Darlene adopted Daisy around that same time I adopted Sadie. She was a small dog, with 2 broken legs that were never properly taken care of prior to Muttville saving her.

Sorry to say Daisy passed 2 weeks ago, with a blood clot in her lung. There was no warning or anything Darlene could have done, (she is an animal health technician).

She had Daisy’s legs fixed, and nursed her to where she could walk and run. This past summer, Darlene had a very serious back operation, and little Miss Daisy, was glued to her side – the best medicine Darlene could have had for her recovery.

Darlene and her husband Leo gave that little Miss Daisy a most beautiful life, and she gave back being Darlene’s little love and nurse when she had her back surgery and during recovery.

Thank you for all you do.

Sincerely,

Carolyn, mother to Darlene, and adopted Mom to Sadie

Success Story Reba

Success Story Reba

A meaningful message perfect for the holiday season. Thank you Susan for warming our hearts with your update about Reba:

We adopted Reba from Muttville in April. I just wanted to let you know she’s fantastic and doing well. She and my 9 year old share lots of love.

We received tons of negative comments about adopting an older dog because what would we do when the dog died? Our daughter understands that pets are with us for a short time and we need to love them while they are with us. And when they die we’ll mourn but be thankful for what they’ve given us and then give another animal a home.

So happy we found Muttville.

Happy Holidays,

Susan

Success Story Lola (aka Dolly Parton)

Success Story Lola (aka Dolly Parton)

Lola says “Greetings from Boston!”:

Dolly (now Lola) is a good little traveler she made the whole flight to Boston without a peep! Luckily, the seat next to me was empty so I was able to let her out to sleep on the floor awhile. I put a blanket over her and she was snoring in seconds!

We think she definitely has picked up since being with us. She loves to go to the beach for a walk and she loves her meals. At first I had to encourage her to eat now she is waiting for her meals!

She is opening up but I think it will take awhile. She is a good little girl she loves her warm bed by the fire.

We love her, we wish we could have taken at least 3 little souls home.

Thank you for all you do.

Sincerely,

Michelle
