Two Old Dogs on their Way to New Lives

Wayne Pacelle, President and CEO of The Humane Society of the United States, in his blog “A Humane Nation”:

Earlier this month, our Animal Rescue Team came to the aid of more than 150 dogs living on an overcrowded California property. Many of the dogs were sick, injured, pregnant, or nursing litters of puppies, most living in outdoor pens in the blistering summer heat.

Two of the elderly dogs we found on this property especially stood out to our rescue team…. The second dog, Lil Mamma, is a shepherd mix who was a bit scared when we first arrived. She has probably given birth to many litters of puppies. We knew that she might need a little extra help finding a loving home, so we were thrilled when Muttville Senior Dog Rescue in San Francisco agreed to take her in. She is now called Beauty …

We are so grateful to Muttville for taking her in and for all their amazing work to help older dogs find good homes.

Muttville rescues 1,000th senior dog

It’s official. Mayor Ed Lee has declared today, May 10th, “Muttville Senior Dog Rescue Day” in celebration of the local rescue organization’s 1,000th rescued senior dog.

Muttville gave its 1,000th rescue, Maxwell, a second chance after spiriting him away from a Martinez shelter where his former family had surrendered him last month. Founder Sheri Franklin describes the nine-year-old, brown-and-blue-eyed mutt as a “sweet honey of a cattle dog.” He is in perfect health, full of smiles and is bursting with love.
