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 100% tax-deductible.

Save the life of a senior dog. Become a Mutt Guardian monthly donor.

Become a Mutt GuardianBecome a Mutt Guardian and make a profound difference in the lives of senior dogs.

Your ongoing support means that we can confidently say “yes!” to many more loving, amazing souls that would need us to come to their rescue. Many of these are in high kill shelters.

Mutt Guardians is the special name we give to monthly sustaining donors who contribute money all year round to help save the lives of senior dogs. Your commitment reduces the time we spend fundraising, helps us plan our operations, and – most important – allows us to rescue dogs we would otherwise be unable to help. Knowing that we have your ongoing support means that we can confidently say yes to many more loving, amazing souls.

When a mutt comes to Muttville, it is that dog’s lucky day. Many come to us battle-scarred, scared, and in need of healing. We start by showering them with love, getting them all the veterinary care they need, grooming them, and then loving them some more until we find them their forever homes. Mutt Guardians make that possible.

To sign up, choose the level that works for you (minimum $10 a month), and your credit card will be automatically billed for that amount each month. To change or cancel your Mutt Guardian subscription at any time, simply contact us at

Every penny counts. We respect your donation and use each dollar wisely. Your donations are the reason we can do what we do. In 2014 we saved 780 senior mutts!

Updated weekly

In 2015, our “Lovin’ Mutt Guardians” campaign hopes to achieve a goal to double our Mutt Guardian family to a total of 750. We need your commitment so that we can say “yes!” to many senior mutts and keep doing what we do: housing, feeding and treating these precious souls. More Mutt Guardians means we can make an even bigger impact in the lives of senior dogs.
