Muttville's founder to receive the prestigious Jefferson Award!

We have wonderful news: Sherri Franklin, founder of Muttville, has been awarded the prestigious Jefferson Award for Public Service. The award is given to people who do outstanding good work and inspire others to do the same.

From their website: “From the beginning, the Jefferson Awards has been based on a simple idea. One of the most powerful ideas in the world. One person can make a difference. That is the heart of democracy at work.”

And Sherri has been recognized as one of those people.
Congratulations – you deserve that and more! And thanks to everybody who helps Sherri change the lives of senior dogs…and the way the world thinks about them.

Congratulations, Sherri. You deserve this award more than words can say. You have dedicated your life to help save dogs who would never have had a chance under any other circumstances. I love my “pack” and will always be in debt to you for finding them for me. THANK YOU for what you do. Donna Turrentine (Teddy, Oliver, Olive(Pumpkin), and Winnie.
