Event description

Description

Interested in giving back to your community? Love playing with dogs? Come hang out with your fellow Haas alums and help Muttville's senior shelter dogs find new homes!

What is Muttville?

Muttville was founded by Sherri Franklin, a long-time animal advocate and shelter volunteer, in 2007 to save the lives of the older dogs that were considered “unadoptable” and routinely euthanized in area shelters.

The dogs at Muttville come from shelters all over California and beyond. Most are from the Bay Area. Some go to shelters as strays; some are dumped; some come from loving homes where someone has died or has become incapable of caring for an animal. At most shelters, seniors are more difficult to find homes for, and shelters reach out to Muttville to find homes for their older dogs, many who would otherwise be euthanized. Mutville volunteers work tirelessly to check dogs’ health, test their temperaments and match them with new families to make a good fit for both.
