Muttville is based in San Francisco, California and is dedicated to creating better lives for senior dogs (age seven and older) through rescue, foster, adoption, hospice, education, and advocacy. Founded in 2007, Muttville was one of the first organizations in the country dedicated to saving senior dogs. Today, Muttville operates a cage-free facility with an in-house veterinary clinic, and saves over 1,000 senior dogs each year.
Every one of the more than 1,000 senior dogs that Muttville rescues each year needs medical care to prepare them for a successful and comfortable new beginning. The Grey Muzzle Organization's funding will increase Muttville's in-house veterinary program capacity, which will reduce pain and suffering by providing care more quickly, lower costs, and minimize the amount of time between intake and adoption. This support helps dogs like Polka and Dottie, a bonded pair who both desperately needed dental care to alleviate their pain and help them be adopted into a loving home. Grey Muzzle grants have supported hundreds of senior dogs through Muttville’s programs, including Seniors for Seniors and hospice.
