Review for Mutts Matter Rescue, Rockville, MD, USA
I got a call from my sister one day last February. "Mutts Matter could use your help and your SUV to pick up some Mastiffs that need to be rescued." Uhh...ok. I had no idea how or where, but I knew a little bit about this wonderful organization and couldn't say no to my sister ;) She and I drove to a shelter in our vehicles and met up with Melanie, the organization's founder and president who is a very passionate woman who knew what she wanted and didn't want to take no for an answer. We walked through the shelter, which is no easy task to do seeing all of the dogs wanting to leave and be loved! Pointing out the Mastiffs that were part of a cruelty case of a backyard breeder, she said we'll take them! Loading 3 of the adult Mastiffs we had room for and two puppies into our vehicles, we drove to the vet in a caravan to have them checked out. I was so taken with Melanie's drive and compassion for these very large helpless dogs, I couldn't help but be feel compelled to do more! Mutts Matter has a large networking capability, allowing them to bring the dogs to the public very quickly and lining up fosters to have them adjusted and evaluated before they are adopted. Their fundraisers have been fantastic! Again, using the wide networking capabilities that are needed for a rescue organization to get the word out for the much needed support they need to survive and thrive, allowing them to continue their wonderful work! I am so fortunate and thankful for the opportunity to volunteer with Mutts Matter. After all, Mutts DO Matter and their chances just got a lot better with this organization!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
