Review for Muttville Senior Dog Rescue, San Francisco, CA, USA
Muttville really is a magical, happy place. I think many folks hear senior dog rescue and think, "How sad!"
Nothing could be farther from the truth.
I've been volunteering at Muttville for four years now, and in that time, I've spent over 3,000 hours there, and over 3,000 dogs have found their forever homes. Most of these dogs would have faced certain euthanasia in the shelters that they came from.
Seeing these dogs blossom when given love, proper veterinary care and nutrition-it's just amazing.
When I first started as a volunteer, I largely did dog care and laundry. As I've grown in my role, I now lead outreach events into the community to educate about Muttville and its mission for senior dogs, and also have taken on the training of all new Muttville volunteers. I also heavily feature the Muttville mutts on my Facebook and Instagram accounts which has resulted in several adoptions. My Instagram account is found here: www.instagram.com/craighermes
It's rewarding work, and it has had a profound impact on my own health and well being. Do we heal the dogs or do they heal us? It's both. It's a perfect win-win.
One would be hard pressed to find a more diverse, compassionate, and loving community than Muttville Senior Dog Rescue.
