November Charity Spotlight on Muttville

Muttville: 4Knines Charity Spotlight November 2015November is Adopt-A-Senior-Pet Month!!

Tragically, hundreds of friendly, well-behaved dogs are euthanized every day. Far too many senior dogs are abandoned at local shelters for a variety of reasons including a caretaker's death or illness, relocation, working long hours, family dynamics, or unexpected financial circumstances. Some dogs of advanced age are in poor health as well. Their stories range from the heartbreaking to the heartwarming, but the sad reality is that older pets are often the last to be adopted from traditional shelter systems. In 2007, Sherri Franklin, longtime animal advocate and rescue worker, decided to do something to improve the lives of senior dogs who would otherwise be doomed to the high-kill shelters of San Francisco. Sherri started a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, Muttville, whose mission includes:

"Changing the way the world thinks about and treats older dogs, aged seven years and older, and to creating better lives for them through rescue, foster, adoption, and hospice."

Muttville works with shelters and other animal organizations to rescue senior dogs that are not likely to find homes. Through outreach and networking, Muttville works tirelessly to find suitable new homes for these dogs. On a local level, Muttville operates a cage-free facility, which houses newly rescued senior dogs awaiting foster care (or hospice care if needed). On a global level, Muttville provides information about caring for older dogs and offers support to human caregivers. Muttville's senior canines are often perfect companions for senior humans. Their Seniors for Seniors program matches mellow, well-socialized senior dogs with a senior human companion. Muttville waives its adoption fee on all Seniors for Seniors adoptions. In addition, Muttville mutts receive a wellness exam and any necessary vaccinations from a veterinarian. If a senior caretaker should become unable to care for their furry companion, Muttville reassumes care of the senior canine. Studies show that people experience real health benefits when they welcome a dog into their lives, and Muttville has shared many success stories from seniors whose lives have been forever changed through this Seniors for Seniors experience!

Muttville would love to see a world in which no dog spends his last days in a cold, dark shelter.

These senior dogs have much love to give and joy to share! You can help save a life today. With your donation, Muttville can continue its lifesaving efforts. There are MANY ways to contribute to the ongoing success of this great nonprofit. Each month, 4Knines selects a worthy organization to support and shares the great work they are doing through a monthly spotlight. Muttville has been recognized by Oprah and the Red Cross in addition to receiving multiple awards for the amazing work they are doing. Please join 4Knines in helping to make a difference in the lives of Muttville's mutts. Muttville and Dog Seat Covers: Cargo, Dog Bed Liner, Bed Cover: 30% Off Premium Seat Covers

Why Did I Wait So Long?

I should have bought these years ago. Easy to use, easy to clean, and tons of headaches saved in trying to keep a blanket or covering on the car seat when taking the dogs on the trails, camping, etc. Highly recommend.

Terrific product at a great price

I am beyond pleased with everything about my new 4Knines split rear back seat cover! The fabric is soft and attractive. The fit in my 2018 CR-V is perfect. Dirt just brushes off it, and water beads and wipes right off. It couldn't easier to put on and take off. This is a wonderful product at a great price.

XL Back seat bench cover

Love our new purchase from 4Knines. We were looking for a back seat cover that would fit our new 2017 F250 crew cab and this one fits perfect. Highly recommend for those wishing to maintain their seats. The material is excellent quality and it’s quick and easy to put on and take off. We also have the bucket seat covers from this company for our 2015 Yukon Denali and have gotten a lot of use out of them over the last couple of years and they are still in excellent condition and so are our seats. Thanks 4Knines for a great product!

great product, sturdy, XL great fit for new 4Runner, cleans easy

I was worried this product might not hold up since one I recently purchased from another company ripped w/in 2 weeks from my 30lb Aussie pulling on it when trying to get into the back. I have been extremely pleased with the XL cargo liner. The straps are much more durable with more stitching and better fabric. I have a 50 lb Border Collie mix and 30 lb Aussie. They have already put the liner to the test!!! I have used it numerous times in the short 2 weeks I have had it. The XL was a great choice for my new 2017 4Runner. It allows me to strap to the front headrests and protect the whole back of the SUV. The skirt protects the bumper. It is too long when I only strap to the middle seats but I just fold under the extra fabric and still have the skirt. I use the full length most of the time and reason I got the XL. The fabric is sturdy and protected the back when the dogs spilled water. So far I have used it to haul bags of topsoil, go on a camping trip and visit family. I purchased the liner mainly to protect the back b/c we have flyball practice every week and tournaments every month. That's a lot of in/out for equipment, doggies and crates. I was very glad to see the edges fold up to protect the wheel wells. I am extremely pleased with this product and sorry I wasted money on my first purchase from other company. I have already recommended the liner to fellow flyball teammates. Shipping was great also. I ordered on a Sunday and it arrived Sat. So far I have just swept the dirt off and used a shop vac. Cleans up well and easy.
