Gertie is an adorable little poodle who was found in rough shape as a stray in Hayward. Despite her rough past, Gertie is a happy pup who wants nothing more than a place to call home.
In time, Gertie's beautiful coat will grow in and she'll look like a brand new dog. Bring this girl home and you'll watch her blossom more and more each day. Gertie is great with people and friendly towards other dogs. She is lower energy, and doesn't require much exercise. She sleeps most of the day in her cozy bed, and would be perfectly happy to be home by herself while you're at work. She is the perfect little lap dog and is sure to bring lots of love to your life!
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.
Humane America Animal Foundation, dba Adopt-a-Pet.com, is a non-profit, tax-deductible 501(c)(3) adoption advertising charity. Our mission (and passion) is to help
