November Charity Spotlight on Muttville

Muttville: 4Knines Charity Spotlight November 2015

November is Adopt-A-Senior-Pet Month!! Tragically, hundreds of friendly, well-behaved dogs are euthanized every day. Far too many senior dogs are abandoned at local shelters for a variety of reasons including a caretaker’s death or illness, relocation, working long hours, family dynamics, or unexpected financial circumstances. Some dogs of advanced age are in poor health as well. Their stories range from the heartbreaking to the heartwarming, but the sad reality is that older pets are often the last to be adopted from traditional shelter systems. In 2007, Sherri Franklin, longtime animal advocate and rescue worker, decided to do something to improve … Continue reading

September Charity Spotlight on Dogs on Deployment

September Spotlight Dogs on Deployment

The Marine Corps has a motto “Semper Fidelis” which means “Always Faithful” – to the Corps, to one another, to country. The word faithful (or loyal) also brings another image to mind…a dog. Dogs are known for the loyalty and unconditional love they bestow upon the humans who welcome them into their lives. Shawn and Alisa Johnson are a dual-military family who wanted to reciprocate their dog’s loyalty when they were called to serve at the same time in different parts of the world – Alisa in Virginia for six months and Shawn overseas. Alisa desperately wanted to have JD, … Continue reading
