If you live in the San Francisco area, you’ve probably heard of Muttville–the rescue group dedicated to saving senior pets from euthanasia and shelters and placing them in loving homes. You’d also know that Muttville was chosen the San Francisco area’s favorite charity by the readers of 7×7 Magazine.
Muttville was founded in 2007 by animal advocate and rescue worker Sherri Franklin. After spending several years rescuing dogs–particularly senior dogs–she saw a real need for helping these older canines find loving homes long after their puppy years.
Sherri Franklin and rescue dog Frankie are seen below, ecstatic about the new “MuttMobile” for Muttville. Sherri was in the audience for the final Oprah Winfrey “My Favorite Things” episode and this 2012 Beetle was one of many gifts bestowed to Muttville.
Sherri thanks Oprah and Volkswagen for the brand new 2012 Beetle, carrying senior dogs over seven years of age to adoption events in the San Francisco Bay Area! Check out the older deserving dogs of Muttville at www.muttville.org.
