About Muddy Moose Mutts, Inc

Formerly Meade Canine Rescue New England, Muddy Moose Mutts became a new independent rescue in April 2017. In 2022, Muddy Moose Mutts saved over 150 dogs, many of which were on lists to be euthanized at the kill shelters they were in. Many came from local pounds as strays. Many were saved from Texas ahead of the hurricane. Many were abused, neglected, and malnourished. Many were owner surrenders where the owners had died or lost their home. All were in search of a new loving forever home. And that is where Muddy Moose Mutts stepped in.

Each day, taking in a new dog with unknown issues, can lead to a drastic increase in our expenses. We do not discriminate against the dogs we rescue. We take in the young and the old, the healthy and the sick, and the unfriendly and the adorable. We are there for the dogs in need. We have treated dogs in need of surgery for bladder or kidney stones and mammary tumors, Cushing's disease, cancer, provided life-saving heartworm treatment, provided dental work for dogs with rotting teeth, provided long term hospice care, and worked with dogs in desperate need of human interaction and guidance. Most importantly, we provided these dogs with a loving and caring home environment while they waited for their forever homes.

Please consider supporting our mission by checking out our adoptable dogs for your new best friend. If you are un-able to adopt, please consider a donation to help us help these deserving dogs. You can learn more about the rescue at
