Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: Mutts Matter Rescue is a 501 (c)3, non profit, all volunteer based organization, with combined rescue experience of over 15 years. We work in conjunction with shelters and other organizations to help save animals on death row, the strays on the street, or ones in unsafe living conditions. We adopt in the DC, VA, and MD areas, with a few exception out of the tri-state area depending on the dog and situation. We are driven by love, compassion, and hope. With enough dedication, we hope to be able to empty the shelters one day soon.

Target demographics: save dogs on death row, and ones in abusive situations.

Geographic areas served: the Northeast

I have the honor and privilige of serving on the board of this great nonprofit. I have seen every mix/breed of dog come into the rescue in every state of neglect, poor health, unloved and terrified. MMR provides not only the basic health care to get this deserving animal well but also the nurturing and love to help heal from the inside out.

We have gotten almost 450 dogs into loving homes where they are not just pets but considered family members that are truly loved and cherished. Every dog deserves a place to call home with belly rubs, kindness and love until their very last breath. Organizations like MMR make this possible.

I live in Houston & had the good fortune of visiting DC recently. I met many of the fosters, volunteers & doggies in the program. I am so impressed with how this organization runs...just a well oiled machine...saving one precious life @ a time. Melanie is a strong, intelligent & fearless leader...& it all trickles down.
