I’ve got a real soft spot for senior dogs; nothing warms my heart more than seeing these lovely dogs being given a second chance and seeing what true gratefulness is all about. Senior dogs smiling are some of the best smiles on Earth.
Muttville Senior Dog Rescue
Muttville Senior Dog Rescue is a non profit organization dedicated to rescuing dogs 7 years of age or older. They’re based in San Fransisco and have been helping give seniors and special needs dogs a second chance at life since 2007.
They work to improve the lives of senior dogs by providing them with new homes if they’re adoptable or hospice care if they are not. Through associations with shelters and other rescue groups Muttville takes in dogs that aren’t likely to find new homes. They provide medical care and foster homes until a suitable new home is found.
If we had our way, no dog would spend its last days in a cold, dark shelter. There is so much love and joy in these dogs! Bringing these special dogs into a home is not only good for the dogs, but such loving, mellow dogs transform the quality of life for the people who adopt or foster them. – Muttville
Ultimately Muttville plans to have a facility to help hold dogs until they can find foster homes or new forever homes. They rely on donations and support to be able to continue to improve the lives of these wonderful senior dogs. If you or anyone you know has a special spot for senior dogs in your heart consider sharing their lovely message.
Muttville is a nonprofit organization dedicated to changing the way the world thinks about and treats older dogs, aged seven years and older, and to creating better lives for them through rescue, foster, adoption, and hospice. – Muttville’s Mission Statement

These photos highlight the amazing work Muttville does for senior dogs. I’ve heard that adopting a senior dog is one of the most rewarding experiences one can have – from the looks on these new owners faces I certainly believe it.
Blessed is the person who has earned the love of an old dog. – Sydney Jeanne Seward
