You can save a life today! With your donation, Muttville can continue its lifesaving efforts … finding loving homes for wonderful abandoned senior dogs. We are a lean operation, but have many expenses, veterinary bills being first and foremost along with food and care for our 60 plus dogs that are available for adoption at any given time. Any amount helps. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, so your contribution is deductible to the fullest extent of the law. You should consult your own tax advisor.
