Mutterings From the Mutts

Wow, what a week it has been at Mostly Mutts!

First, Melody Victoria was on the news and Mostly Mutts received a nice plug as well.  You can click here to see the latest on her story and where things are with the man who cruelly injured her.

Secondly, we lost one of our sweet babies this week.  Mango, a precious little doggy who was in a wonderful new home, had given birth recently to three puppies, two of which passed away.  Last Saturday Mango slipped a disc in her upper back and was paralyzed in the rear. She went in for emergency surgery on Sunday and had been at the Cobb Surgical Center and Cobb Emergency but was still having problems.  She was in a tremendous amount of pain and had to be put to sleep last night.  We wanted to give her time to recover from her back surgery but she was actually getting worse with the paralysis so she really left us no choice.  Her mommy was with her till the very end and gave her lots of hugs and kisses.  We think we love them when they are alive and with us but we realize just how much we love them when they leave us.  She’ll be well cared for in heaven alongside of the other Mostly Mutts dogs there.

Mostly Mutts has had a lot of medical bills in the last few months;  Mango's surgery alone was $5000.00.   Each day she was in the hospital was a minimum of $300.00.  Along with her orthopedic bills, a Mastiff named Bella had a $1600.00 knee surgery.  Bama’s broken leg cost $3500.00 and after spending on Woodstock’s two surgeries, his leg had to be amputated for $700.00.  We are in desperate need to raise $10,000 and we need your help.  We are asking everyone to give whatever you can to help Mostly Mutts keep giving back to the animals that need us out there fighting for them.  You can give to a specific dog through our Chipin links of our Facebook page  or mail a donation to  2774 North Cobb Parkway, Suite 109 #189, Kennesaw, GA  30152.  We also have a Paypal account you can donate through on our website at Mostly Mutts.

Last but not least, we have two special angels who are new to the shelter who have been badly starved.  They  are playful, beautiful dogs who have enjoyed all the hugs, kisses and attention lavished on them at their stop over at Mostly Mutts.

 Meet Paula Sue and Paul Joseph!  Paula is thought to be about a year and half old and sort type of American Bulldog.  Very loving and enjoys people!  Paul Joseph is roughly four 4 years old, male and is probably some type of Beagle mix.  These little sweet hearts lived in a yard together and were starving.  A kindly neighbor took them in to animal control.  The owner signed them over to animal control and received a citation.  They have certainly been blessed to end up at Mostly Mutts!
Keep your love and support for the mutts coming; it never goes unappreciated!  And anyone is interested in helping to organize a fundraiser, please email us at
