Latka (brown doggie in the picture) adapted quickly and is thriving. She is becoming integral member of our home. We hope with her company, our dog will learn to be more trusting of other dogs again. We learned of Mutville through my best friend who took in few herself. Their mission is great all around.

I had been looking for a dog at several rescues in the SF Bay Area after my terrier passed away. My friend told me about Muttville Senior Dog rescue and I looked them up on the computer. They have a wonderful web site that is very easy to use and I was able to fill out an adoption application right then and there. The next weekend we went to their headquarters in San Francisco. Though they call it a shelter - its not like a City shelter - I didn't see dogs in any cages - they were all out in a big sun filled room with people cuddling and petting them There were futons and lots of dog beds. It bought tears to my eyes to see these wonderful interactions between the dogs and people. There were several volunteers wearing Muttville shirts and they had name tags on which was a nice touch. I spoke with a very nice woman named Michelle and we discussed the types of dogs which Muttville had and who might be a good match for me. A business trip is taking me out of town for awhile, but upon my return I plan to go back to the Muttville shelter. Michelle suggested that I keep an eye on the website as each dog who is saved by Muttville has a profile there which I can read about. What a fabulous group!

A few months after moving to the area I was looking to adopt a dog, and found Muttville. I found the girl of my dreams through them!
