Review for Muttville Senior Dog Rescue, San Francisco, CA, USA
I've been a volunteer with Muttville Senior Dog Rescue for over two and a half years. It's the first organization I've ever volunteered for on such a regular long term basis. I am hooked.
I adopted my first senior dog in 2005 and had no idea he would become my gateway drug to Muttville years later. It's almost hard to describe the feeling when you walk into the open loft and see all these senior sweeties walking around, getting love and attention while waiting for a special person to take them home.
I got more than I expected at Muttville because I’ve made some great friends along the way. When I joined I was all about the dogs, I wasn’t looking to strike up friendships. But the people there are really great from volunteers to the staff. The staff work their butts off and are still thoughtful. As a volunteer it doesn't matter if it's laundry, mopping, poop clearing, organizing and the best, dog walking, they truly appreciate what you do.
I now volunteer in the vet suite and work with two very amazing women who kick off each dog’s journey from their first intake exam through their medical care at Muttville. I also adopted a fospice dog who arrived at Muttville last year, I’m including his picture before adoption and later at the beach. I was Cooper ‘s foster failure and am all the better for it.
