Make Some Senior Dog Friends with Muttville | San Francisco Village


Our vibrant programming is the gateway through which members gain empowering information, share experiences, and develop a deep sense of belonging to the community. At a time when older adults may find their social networks shrinking, San Francisco Village programs offer opportunities to expand. Programs are continually evolving, reflecting the interests and requests of our dynamic membership, and generally fall into one of six categories: Healthy Aging, Express Yourself, Member-Led, Connections Across Generations, Navigating Today’s World, and Exploring San Francisco.

On average, San Francisco Village hosts 30 program events per month. Take a look at our calendar and get involved!

Make Some Senior Dog Friends with Muttville

7/12/2018 from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM PST

Join us to learn about Muttville Senior Dog Rescue, a San Francisco organization whose mission is to change the way the world thinks about and treats older dogs and to create better lives for them through rescue, foster, adoption, hospice, education and advocacy. Learn about Muttville's programs for senior humans–our Seniors for Seniors adoption program and Cuddle Club. We'll have a couple of mutts on hand who will love some attention!
Founded by Sherry Franklin in 2007 to save the lives of the older dogs that were considered “unadoptable” and routinely euthanized in area shelters, Muttville has become a national model. Franklin, who worked from her house to save 27 dogs that first year, said she “wanted to make senior dogs sexy”—and she now speaks at conferences around the country about animal rescue, senior dogs, and Muttville’s innovative programs.

Registration for this event is closed.

“It’s about staying engaged both in the home and out of the home … It’s about familiarity with others at a time in life that is rich and full of surprises, and it’s about having fun with other city-dwellers who value a common lifestyle.”

donor since 2013
