I am a donor to Mutville which I came to know through a friend who spends her precious time on weekends volunteering at the shelter. Having rescued so many dogs myself, I love hearing stories with great endings about the dogs at Mutville. I truly admire the work that its founder, Sherri Franklin, has done. If we could all be like Sherri and the Mutville volunteers, then no dog will ever have to suffer. May God continue to bless Sherri and all of the Mutville volunteers and all the dogs that are in the shelter.

Muttville is such a happy place for dogs looking for a second chance. It is filled with love, compassion and hope to those that for no reason of their own been dumped or just throw away in their golden years.

"Muttville...because it is never too late for a happy ending" is the first bumper sticker that I have ever posted onto a car. Why? I am in awe of what Sheri and her dedicated group of volunteers do for senior mutts day in and day out. My failed foster, Hannah, is my own Muttville angel and I cannot imagine my life without her. When people ask how I could have adopted a third senior dog I simply say that they are the most overlooked, but the wisest and most grateful. Thank you Muttville for your support of underdogs and enabling them to have the dignity, love and respect they deserve in their golden years.

Muttville is a truly amazing organization with a just and worthy cause -- to give abandoned and neglected senior dogs a new "leash" on life. They provide older dogs with much-needed veterinary care, loving foster homes, and eventually a new family to call their own! Also, Muttville is a tremendously efficient organization, so you can be sure that your donation will have a tremendous impact!

It's amazing how dedicated the volunteers are at Muttvile. I don't live close enough to volunteer my time, so I help them with a monthly donation. I know they put it to good use. They don't spend money on overhead and high salaries; they spend it for vet visits, medications, and food for these wonderful senior dogs. They are doing a great job of publicizing the availability of the dogs, and that's resulted in hundreds of them being adopted. But more keep coming. The need for support is great, and I hope others who read this will be encouraged to donate.
