Ain't Too Proud to Beg!

It's tax time!  Don't forget your contributions. 
For this year, please consider joining our
Ain't Too Proud to Beg campaign (ATPB).  

Mostly Mutts has developed an impressive reputation  for rescuing homeless pets with extreme orthopedic injuries. If we don't step in to help, the only other choice is euthanasia.  We want to continue to help, but without financial support from the community, we will have to start saying "no" to these unfortunate dogs.  Here are a few special orthopedic cases in just the past few months (all surgically performed by specialists):
Bolo - Rear leg amputation
Joe - Femur fractured - Surgically repaired
  Rocky - Two Ulna and Radial fractures - Surgically repaired (both front legs)
Cassidy - Ulna and Radial fractures - Surgically repaired
Cookie - Femur fracture - Non-surgically repaired (casted)
 Doug - Front leg amputation
Pending:  Puppy with fractured femur at an emergency clinic and a Cocker mix at an animal control with a suspected fractured hip.

Our ATPB campaign allows us to pay for these extremely expensive surgeries.  Join this today and at the end of the year you will have a nice tax-deductible donation.  Every one of you reading this can afford to be a Happy Hound :)
A contribution to this campaign makes a wonderful gift for your animal-loving friends and family member. 

Become a:  
Happy Hound ($10.00 a month),
Furry Friend ($25.00)
Tail Wagger ($50)
Best Friend ($100),
True Companion ($500)
and we know you are out there and we
would love to find you...our
Leader of the Pack ($1000.00 a month)

Thanks to those of you who are already participating. 
We challenge you to find one friend to match you!

Everyone from Mostly Mutts appreciates your support, but special thanks comes from the dogs themselves!

From Puppy Mill to Mostly Mutts to....Your Home?

5 yrs, 15 lbs. If you've heard about me before, I'm going to sound like a completely different dog! I spent my whole young life in a puppy mill.   There is no socialization in puppy mills so I'm a little behind with those skills.  Each day I learn more and get more comfortable being a house dog and a companion.  My teeth look like a 10 year old dogs teeth because they were damaged by years of chewing on metal cages.  My tongue permanently sticks out because of my bad teeth.  But the vets agree that I'm not older than 5 because my eyes are so young looking.  My new home MUST have other dogs because I enjoy the company of other dogs. I know there is someone out there who will provide me with a loving home and allow me to work at my pace. My foster mom is so excited about my improvements and you will be too.

Dog of the Week-Miss Maddie!

We love our Miss Maddie but are sad for her because she has been looking for her forever home since 2010. Her wonderful foster mom brings her to Petsmart adoptions every weekend but Maddie consistently gets overlooked.  Maddie is such a good girl and she would be great with a family who works during the day and wants to come home to a dog that hasn't destroyed the house.  Or, a retired couple who are home most of the day and would love the companionship of a four legged friend.  Maddie can live with other dogs, cats and older kids.  She has an old break in her tail so she is sensitive in that area (so no young children).  Let's all find her a home by spreading the word.  Mostly Mutts will rejoice!
