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!

Pet Adoption Reunion

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
