Celebrating its fourth birthday this month is Muttville Senior Dog Rescue. Sherri Franklin, a longtime foster parent for theSan Francisco SPCA, always took in elderly dogs, knowing they were unlikely to get adopted, and never abandoned them to their fate. Finally she launched an organization just for seniors dumped in shelters, found wandering the streets, or with desperate owners who could no longer care for them.
So far, Muttville has found homes for over 900 dogs. With all sizes, energy levels and personality types, Muttville seniors suit a wide variety of lifestyles, and the rescue's network of foster homes around the Bay Area keeps them happy and safe while they're waiting for their perfect match. Meet some Muttville Mutts at Kiehl's in San Francisco on February 19, Pet Food Express in Novato February 20, and at Bay Area Pet Expo in San Jose February 26.
