Review for Muttville Senior Dog Rescue, San Francisco, CA, USA
I've been volunteering at Muttville since 2016, about a year after my husband and I moved to San Francisco. I started walking a few dogs and cleaning HQ, then expanded to participating in adoption events and outreach, as well as fostering dogs. Muttville is great because it's a small organization with HUGE results. As a volunteer, I've been welcomed not just to my shift but thanked for everything I contribute, from making T-shirts for a local running race to turning our holiday party into a fundraiser. Muttville is a wonderful place, and made me feel like San Francisco is my home.
Since all Muttville dogs are friendly with other dogs and with people, we've been able to foster routinely, which has helped our reactive terrier to calm down. Our two dogs--who are also seniors--know right away when a Muttville Mutt comes to stay!
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Fundraise more so there can be more staff and Muttville can save more dogs! Also, we always need volunteers.
