In recognition of Muttville's dedication to saving senior dogs and in honor of Maxwell, their 1,000th rescue, San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee has proclaimed May 10, 2011 as "Muttville Senior Dog Rescue Day"!
We are leaping with joy! We appreciate all of those who work so hard to help end the homeless pet population. So many people work tirelessly in the trenches for animals all over the world, and on May 10th we get to recognize the hard work of tireless pet advocate, Sherri Franklin and her team of volunteers and staff.
It has been a joy sharing Muttville with so many people, like the folks at PEDIGREE and the PEDIGREE Foundation. I've been fortunate to be sponsored by PEDIGREE so that I could attend the BlogPaws Conferences last year. This connection opened the door for my sharing the work of Muttville with several folks representing PEDIGREE. Last year Muttville was a recipient for a $12,000 Innovation Grant from PEDIGREE Foundation, and they received hundreds of pounds of food, which they were able to share with other rescue groups in San Francisco. Some of the wonderful dog gear PEDIGREE gave to me, I passed directly to Muttville.
Celebrate Muttville at City Hall Muttville mutts and the people that love them will be convening at the Civic Center/City Hall Plaza right across Polk street from City Hall at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, May 10th (weather permitting). JOIN US
Many within our Influence Positively interview series work directly on positive changes within animal welfare. Sherri Franklin, the founder of Muttville was highlighted November 2010. At that time she spoke of helping save over 825 senior dogs. Today marks the placement of Maxwell, their 1,000th rescue. We couldn't be more thrilled. Three cheers for Muttville!
