About Magnificent Mutts Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Magnificent Mutt is a group of dedicated volunteers who provide love, hope and a safe sanctuary to our animals in need. They transport, foster, feed and train our many animals. The volunteers give their time and love to the dogs so the dogs learn that humans do indeed care. Not all volunteers foster; their are many other areas where help is needed such as: organizing/running adoption and fundraising events, writing/creating flyers, and other various marketing efforts. We work as a team, and use all of our skills to benefit the animals and the organization.

We are always seeking dog-lovers who want to contribute their time and effort to help us achieve our goals. If you are interested in becoming a Mutts Volunteer, please see our page on Volunteering!
