Review for Mostly Muttz Rescue, Pottstown, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In September 2015, Rufus was a dog living in Virginia who was hit by a car. He suffered multiple fractures to his right front leg, left hip, and ribs. Mostly Muttz Rescue, of Gilbertsville, PA brought him to UPENN Veterinary Hospital to receive care. This included amputation of his right front leg and surgical repair of his left hip fracture. Rufus did well through surgery, but he had a long road ahead. He soon started physical therapy and laser treatments at Animal Therapy Center. On Thanksgiving Day 2015, Rufus took his first steps since his accident. I was following Rufus' story as one of my dogs was receiving treatment at Animal Therapy Center as well. Through all the suffering Rufus endured, his spirit was unwavering. I began to donate to Mostly Muttz Rescue to aid in the cost of Rufus' medical bills. By February, Rufus was strong enough to be adopted. My husband and I adopted him immediately. He is now a cherished member of our family. Mostly Muttz Rescue provides care of dogs who may otherwise be overlooked. We were so inspired by the organization, my husband and I now volunteer our time to help care for their other dogs still awaiting their forever families.

Review for Mostly Muttz Rescue, Pottstown, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

One year ago this week , Rufus was rescued by Mostly Muttz Rescue (MMR) after being hit by a car in West Virginia. He sustained multiple traumatic injuries, the most serious being fractures of his right front leg, left hip, and multiple ribs. Most people would have thought euthanasia was the only option because of how expensive and lengthy his recovery would be. To this day, I am not sure what made Mostly Muttz Rescue decide to give Rufus a second chance. But the president of MMR, April Moyer, recently said "How do we not give this tiny creature the chance to know the love he deserved his whole life?" What I do know is I will be forever grateful they did. MMR made it possible for Rufus to receive the veterinary care he needed, which included amputation of his front leg and surgical repair of his hip fracture. In the months that followed, they provided him with the time, love, and support he needed to recover. This included rehabilitation therapy five days a week for 6 months. Despite all the pain and suffering Rufus has endured his spirit is unwavering. My husband and I adopted Rufus in February of this year. He has taught us so much more than we could ever teach him. He loves life and is determined to live life to the fullest. MMR continues to provide support for us if we have questions or concerns. This rescue truly goes above and beyond for dogs in need. They will put to excellent use any financial assistance to continue to save the lives of dogs which would otherwise be euthanized, pushed aside, or forgotten.
