Give The Gift of Hope This Thanksgiving

So many animals are homeless for the holidays. All they want is to find a loving, forever home and family. With your kindness and compassion, you can help puppies like Gus and his siblings find a forever home! Gus and his siblings were dropped off at the Los Angeles Shelter. They were weak, weary and malnourished when MuttShack pulled them and their momma. While everyone else flourished under the care of their foster mom, Gus took a turn for the worse. Continue reading

MuttShack Pet Adoption Families To Be Rewarded With Thanksgiving Gift Bags at Petco in Burbank

In celebration of the Thanksgiving holiday, The MuttShack Animal Rescue will be giving thanks to all the dog adoption families who adopted a rescued dog from The MuttShack. To thank their rescue families, MuttShack will be handing out Thanksgiving Gift Bags to all their adopted dogs.

And they saw the effect MuttShack's presence made there, saving over 3,000 animals, in the largest pet disaster event in history. Continue reading

MuttShack held an Adopted Pet Family Reunion at Petco (Burbank) where people came with their adopted dogs to say thank you to MuttShack - except it was MuttShack who wanted to give the thanks and rewarded adopted pet owners with a bag of doggie treats (compliments of Petco). That day MuttShack was going after the goal of 500 adopted dogs by the end of the day, reaching 497 before the day ended. Not too bad! Today, MuttShack's numbers are over 1200 adopted dogs and growing daily. Continue reading
