Muttville is a GuideStar Platinum Participant and a Four Star Charity Navigator Charity.

You can save a life today! With your donation, Muttville can continue its lifesaving mission to rescue wonderful senior dogs and find them loving homes. We are a lean operation, but veterinary attention, food and care are expensive. 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.

There are many ways to support Muttville:

We never share any information about our donors, but may publicly recognize individuals on our website or other electronic or print materials. Email if you would prefer your gifts to Muttville to remain anonymous. Read our full Donor Privacy Policy.
