Puppy Needing Treatment Left Behind At Shelter Gets Saved

Why would a cute adorable little fluffy puppy be left behind in the shelter by the public and other rescue groups? Because he had a hernia that costs between $200 - $1,000 to repair and even the best intentioned groups are pulling lint out of their pockets. Little Stewie was pulled out of the shelter on his very last day by MuttShack. Not that we had more than lint ourselves - we just had an idea. Continue reading

A New Year With New Hopes And Dog Adoptions In 2015

With the closing of 2014, we are very happy to announce that the total dogs adopted this past year was 391 with a total of 1292 dogs adopted in past couple years since our dog adoption events at Petco. We want to double these numbers this year in 2015! But we can't achieve this alone! MuttShack will need the continued and growing support of dog fosters who can care of the dogs between our weekly adoption events (every Sat. & Sun at Petco in Burbank), the help of our dog adoption event volunteers, and your continued support in donations to help sustain our dog rescue efforts.

How Fostering A Dog Makes A Difference

You might think that The MuttShack Animal Rescue's job is done after rescuing a homeless dog from a lonely, caged and frightening animal shelter environment. But that's where our job begins. Because ultimately our goal is finding new homes for these dogs, not just getting them out of shelters. We promote "Save A Life. Foster A dog" as part of our fostering campaign because we need to get people to foster the rescued shelter dogs once we get them out of shelters. Continue reading

Animal Rescue Awareness Seminars For Schools

Martin and Amanda St John of The MuttShack Animal Rescue are currently touring high schools to deliver 1 hour seminars to students about community awareness and involvement with animal rescue. Eight million dogs and cats enter animal shelters in the U.S. each year. More than half don't make it out. That is why adopting a pet means saving a precious life and is what The MuttShack Animal Rescue has made into a reality. It is also an awareness that Martin brings to students in this seminar.

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

Immaculate Heart School Welcomes MuttShack

Middle and high school students at Immaculate Heart gathered around to see Martin and Amanda St John give a presentation about The MuttShack Animal Rescue. The kids watched "The Katrina Promise" video in awe, as they witnessed what it was like on the front lines of MuttShack's animal triage facility in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina hit, devastating the land and separating pets from their owners who evacuated. 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
