Mutts Up is located in a beautiful, peaceful place in the Petaluma east hills. Just stepping in the door of the kennel building you know the rescue's are well attended. The place is immaculate and the atmosphere is one of gentle care. The Mutts Up team works hard to ensure the rescues find the right forever home!

Mutts Up is an outstanding rescue. The facility is beautiful, and it gives homeless dogs a comfortable environment so that their personalites can really shine. The environment allows people to really see the dog’s true nature and energy. It’s inspiring to see how dedicated Paul and the other volunteers are to the dogs they take in, and they are truly heroes.

I've been to many shelters and rescues, but this one is at the top of my list, and I adopted a dog from here (they are also a sanctuary for llamas, goats and alpacas). The grounds are very well maintained, and the kennels were spotlessly clean and roomy. The dogs were also well fed and bathed. The dogs have indoor/outdoor access, as well as a secure exercise area.

They only have a few dogs at a time, and evaluate them carefully. They had the perfect dog for me, and took whatever time was needed for me to make a decision. When I decided to adopt, they sent me home with enough food to transition to the diet I will be feeding me my new pet, as well as lots of information and advice. They have been generous with answering follow-up calls and concerns.

I just wish more shelters had as much dedication and concern for homeless animals as Mutts Up. https://www.muttsup.org/

We stopped by today to check out the dogs and we were more than impressed by the cleanliness. The facility is amazing and the kennels were the best I’ve ever seen. The dogs were clean, healthy and happy. I would recommend muttsup to anyone looking to adopt a dog.

Mutts up truly has the vision to create a beautiful safe space for their rescues. They go the extra mile to be sure no dog is left behind. Their facility is pristine, clean and a safe space for their rescues. Paul and Carol and the team of volunteers work endlessly to support the vision. The facility is beautiful !

Paul and staff have done an amazing job taking care of the beautiful animals onsite. My wife, daughter and I had an awesome adoption experience with our new pup Dakota! We are a military family who were looking for a puppy to fit into our lives and Paul worked his magic and made it happen. The onsite kennels with the city background is breathe taking and so calming. I know paul anc the crew will go far in their efforts to be #1. They care for their animals and want you to be happy in your choice. A win /win

A beautiful, clean, loving environment for puppies and doggies waiting for a forever family. Dogs are well cared for during their stay. Staff makes volunteers feel appreciated. It’s a bit of a drive to get there, but oh so worth it once you arrive.

The dogs Mutts Up rescues are some of the luckiest pups alive. Paul stops at NOTHING to see these senior dogs get a new lease on life. Those dogs that were once a pet and now are turned into shelters for no other reason than their age, are getting a second chance for a happy ending.
Thank goodness for people like Paul. Please support his cause.

I met Paul during a Senior Dog photo shoot for Mutts Up. There he was on the grass surrounded by five or six rescue dogs. All the dogs were free and so full of joy and happiness. Paul told me they were all seniors and they were all rescued from shelters.
My heart melted. To think these joyful creatures would have died if not for Paul's active role in rescue tore me up inside. He made me realize the need for more activists on behalf of those animals who do not have a voice. He convinced me adoption is better than shopping. Thank you Paul.

I have had the GREAT pleasure of knowing Paul, the founder & President of Mutts Up for six years. In that time he has overwhelmingly given his time, support, energy, and devotion to those senior dogs others have cast aside. His passion for doing the "right thing" is what drives this man to follow his dream and make this world a better place in which to live.
He has the interest of the dog he is working to save first & foremost in his daily agenda. An abundant amount of energy and love goes into each and every rescue.
I am HONORED to call him friend, and help him with his vision.
