Success Story "Sunshine"

Success Story "Sunshine"

We are so happy to see dear Sunshine spreading her warmth since being adopted by Frank and family:

My wife and I adopted Sunshine last October after losing our 12 year old chocolate lab and 13 year old lab-hound mix earlier in 2013.

Sunshine loves to wear a handkerchief when she is out in the world as you tell by her photos. Also, when she sees her leash and harness, she know that we are going to the park or for a walk. Sunshine won’t sit still because she is bouncing around the kitchen or garage making happy sounds. At the dog park, Sunshine likes rolling on her back, barks to greet and to warn frisky dogs to stop playing rough. When we leave home without her, we have the Cartoon Channel on for her to watch. For some strange reason, she doesn’t howl if she is watching cartoons. She does howl when I come home and I suppose it’s her way of greeting me. She buries rawhide squares (made in the USA) in the backyard and checks them regularly. When I leave our doggie van, Sunshine sits in the driver’s seat until I return. At home, she follows us everywhere…the kitchen, family room, the bathroom…because she is inquisitive.

Sunshine is a sweet, loving dog, that has bonded with our 2 cats. Sunshine has one of the greatest doggie smiles ever, too!

Thank you Muttville for all that you do for senior dogs!

Sincerely,

Frank

Success Story "Zeke"

Success Story "Zeke"

Zeke is a real prince. Luckily, his mom knew it even though his royal personality was buried in matted fur and cloudy eyes suffering from glaucoma. Read his story as told by mom Mary:

“This is Zeke the love of my life. I adopted him in October 2011. He had severe cataracts, smelled and grubby but was the sweetest guy. I said I would take him home and give him the best home ever. That he has had. He lost both eyes a year after I got him to glaucoma. That has not stopped us.

He has never been left alone. He knows he is loved and the most special guy. He has been the best gift. Seniors are the only way to go. Thank you Muttville."

Success Story "Little Dude" (aka Chelo)

Success Story "Little Dude" (aka Chelo)

Do you remember the outrageous story about a dog named Chelo whose former owners abandoned him because he was too old? More shocking was what they reported on his surrender form: He lived under the porch and was alone 24 hours a day.

Look at him now! He was adopted by one of Muttville’s long-time supporters, Molly. She promised him that he would never be alone again. Thanks to Molly for sending us this update:

Chelo is a delight. He doesn’t go by Chelo anymore since he never responded to that name. We call him Little Dude. He is such a great dog! He fits right into our home and pack of dogs. He has decided my partner Jennifer is the best, much to my consternation, and follows her around like a puppy. When he first came to us he slept quite a bit and seemed down. Then he started to come around. I think it was the yummy food we cook for him that got him going. He gets warm meat every meal with a bit of kibble and he gobbles it up and looks for more. We have him on Metacam as he has a pretty pronounced limp. Even with the limp, he skips around the house!

All in all he is pretty active for a 15 yr old dog. The best part about Little Dude is that he is quiet as a mouse. I live with lots of barky little dogs so this is a blessing. He gets along with all the dogs in the house as well. We adore him!

Thanks Muttville for the chance to love this incredible little dog.

Maddie's Pet Adoption Days is a Resounding Success!

Maddie's Pet Adoption Days is a Resounding Success!

What a weekend it was! Alabama Street was shut down for Maddie’s Pet Adoption Days, San Francisco’s rescue organizations lined the block, and the street was renamed Rescue Row!

But the biggest news of all for us was that 36 Muttville mutts were adopted in one weekend. 36! (That beats last year’s amazing record of 32 mutts!) You may have been watching our mutt-by-mutt coverage on Facebook, but even if you did, you’ll want to see all the wonderful new families right here!

Because Maddie’s Fund grants money for every at-risk and senior pet adopted over the weekend to help defray the considerable cost of rescuing and rehabilitating these often-neglected animals, Muttville will be the fortunate recipient of $38,000. Thank you, Maddie’s!

Congratulations to everyone who found their soulmates over the weekend. Rescue Row truly is “where love happens”!
