Muttville
Muttville’s mission is to give senior dogs a second chance at life. We rescue them, give them the care they need, find them loving homes, and spread the word about how WONDERFUL they are! Muttville was founded in 2007 by Sherri Franklin, a longtime animal advocate and rescue worker. Working from her house, Sherri rescued 27 dogs that year. Since then, Muttville has grown into a nationally recognized organization that rescues approximately 1000 dogs a year. (And it finally, in 2012, moved out of her house!) Muttville has been recognized for its groundbreaking approach to animal rescue. Our cage-free facility, our focus on foster, our on-site veterinary suite, and our hospice program are innovations that have been lauded and emulated around the country. With a small paid staff, Muttville exists through the hard work of hundreds of volunteers who assist in everything from transport to medical exams to administration. Youth groups, senior groups, and corporate groups consider Muttville a favorite. Muttville was named “San Francisco’s Favorite Charity” by 7X7 magazine and has won numerous “Beast of the Bay Awards” including best rescue organization and best animal cause. In 2011 the Mayor of San Francisco declared May 10 “Muttville Senior Dog Rescue Day.” In 2012, the The Bay Area Chapter of the American Red Cross chose Muttville as one of eight recipients of its 2012 San Francisco Heroes Award.
