Double-your-dollars challenge!

GREAT NEWS! We're in the midst of a matching challenge grant. Thanks to the huge generosity of several special donors, every tax-deductible dollar you donate to Muttville will be MATCHED dollar-for-dollar up to $110,000!

From now until January 15, 2015,
every dollar you give Muttville will be DOUBLED.

That means ...
$25 becomes $50,
$50 becomes $100,
$500 becomes $1,000,
and so on,
up to a total gift of $220,000.

What impact will your money have? Your gift of $50, doubled to $100, buys a senior dog's food and medication for a whole month. Your gift of $500, doubled to $1,000, covers the entire cost – medical, dental, transportation and daily care – of rescuing a typical Muttville dog. With that $500 donation, you literally save a life.

Other ways to give

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

Become a Mutt GuardianWe need you! When you become a Mutt Guardian, you are making 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.

When a senior dog comes to Muttville, it is that dog’s lucky day! Many come to us battle-scarred, sick, scared, and in need of medical attention. We start by showering them with love, getting them all the veterinary care they need, grooming, feeding and then loving them some more until we find their forever loving home.

Did you know that on average we spend $1,000 per rescued dog to prepare them for adoption? Mutt Guardians like you make that possible.

Every penny counts. We respect your donation and use each dollar wisely. Your donations are the reason we can do what we do and is the only money we can count on to sustain our lifesaving mission.

In 2013 we saved 532 mutts and celebrated a major milestone of 2,000 lives saved since Muttville began in 2007. We are on track to save over 600 lives in 2014! WOW!

Please join us by clicking the “Become a Mutt Guardian” button below. Choose the level that works for you (minimum $10 a month), and your credit card will be automatically billed for that amount each month.

Where your money goes

When Muttville rescues a dog, we are 100% committed to taking care of all the dog’s needs to prepare him or her to join a loving family. What does this mean?

Expenses differ depending on the dog, of course, but here are some approximate costs that will help you know where your donation dollars go:

  • Blood work (all Muttville dogs have general blood work done so we can assess their health before they are allowed to be adopted): $100
  • Microchipping to ensure Muttville’s contact information is permanently part of the dog ($25)
  • Spay / neuter (all Muttville dogs are spayed / neutered prior to adoption): $50-$250 (special needs)
  • Grooming (no cost when we do it, but some of our dogs really need a professional) : $0-$60
  • Teeth cleaning (needed for nearly every dog we rescue): $100 and up
  • Tooth extraction (many rescued dogs have bad teeth – and sometimes lots of them – that adversely impact their general health): $500-$800
  • Other surgery, including eye removal, tumor removal and orthopedic: can run as high as $2,400
  • Daily care until a permanent home can be found: $65/month
