Hooray for Muttville! Our Favorite Senior Dog Rescue Saves Its 2,000th Dog
Muttville, located in San Francisco, is a really remarkable organization, and most everyone here at Dogster would admit to having a soft spot in our hearts for the senior-dog rescue group. Rescue organizations abound, but Muttville takes care of dogs that routinely fall through the cracks. Most people, when they start to make the rounds of shelters to take a dog home, want to take home a youngster: Puppies and dogs in their early adolescence are the stars of the dog adoption scene.
