Your gift saves lives!

Shelters all over California depend on Muttville to rescue their older dogs – dogs that otherwise would be the first to be euthanized. And we depend on you! Muttville gets over 80% of its budget from individual donors like you. And 83 cents of every dollar goes to the dogs.

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, so your contribution is deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Please consult your tax advisor.

If you’d prefer to write a check, please make it payable to Muttville and send it to:
Muttville
P.O. Box 410207
San Francisco, CA 94141

We never share any information about our donors, but may publicly recognize individuals on our website or other electronic or print materials. Email donations@muttville.org if you would prefer your gifts to Muttville to be excluded from any public disclosures. Read our full Donor Privacy Policy.

Donor-advised fund

A donor-advised fund, which is like a charitable savings account, gives you the flexibility to recommend how much and how often money is granted to Muttville and other qualified charities. You can recommend a grant or recurring grants now to make an immediate impact or use your fund as a tool for future charitable gifts. Learn more.

Matching gifts

Did you know that many companies will match donations made by employees? Some companies will even match your Muttville volunteer hours with a grant! This is a great way to double or triple your impact on the mutts. Use the search bar below to find out if your company participates in a matching gift program.
