Time to bust out the tissues, because Possum has quite the sad story. This sweetheart was found as a stay, blind, neglected and scared. The local shelter took him in and saw how lovely and gentle he was, so they knew exactly who to call: Muttville! Now Possum is living the good life surrounded by his human and doggie pals, and taking his afternoon naps in the sunshine. He is such a special guy that deserves the very best from here on out!

We think Possum is 10 years young, weighing about 27 lbs.

About Muttville

About Our Rescue Group...

Muttville is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization dedicated to improving the lives of senior dogs. On a local level, Muttville rescues senior dogs and finds them foster homes or gives them hospice. On a global level, Muttville provides information about caring for older dogs and support for people who do.

Through associations with shelters and other animal organizations, Muttville finds senior dogs that have been given up and are not likely to find adopted homes. Through outreach and networking, Muttville finds suitable foster homes for these dogs. Ultimately, Muttville will have its own facility to house dogs that are not yet placed, or that are unlikely to be placed.

Our Adoption Process...

Most dogs have an adoption fee of $200.00. Muttville conducts home visits for potential adopters and if you adopt a dog from Muttville we require a signed adoption contract.
