Trip to Muttville April 2015

The shelter medicine team transferred a few of our senior dogs to muttville last week.  Muttville is located in San Franscisco and is an organization dedicated to helping find forever homes for aging senior dogs.  Muttville is a cage and kennel free environment and not all dogs would thrive or do well in this setting.  If the residents of Muttville don't get adopted, they can live out thier lives at this facility. The photos below chronologically show their journey.  For more info visit www.muttville.org/

 

UPDATE: May 2015 Both Yoda (Seymore) and Buckley (Patches) were recently adopted through Muttville.

Since Muttville is a cage and kennel free environment, our dogs were tested with each other and other dogs for compatibility.
