Muttville is based in San Francisco, California and since their founding in 2007, they have rescued over 8,000 senior dogs (and counting!). Wonderful dogs with loving personalities are euthanized at shelters at staggeringly high rates, simply because of their age. Muttville's mission is to create better lives for senior dogs (age seven and older) through rescue, foster, adoption, hospice, education and advocacy.
