At Mostly Mutts, our veterinary partners see it all: , puppies stricken with parvo, dogs and kitties with broken bones, painful hip and knee injuries, eye injuries and pets going blind caused by neglect, rotting teeth, animals that have been shot, heart murmurs, skin inflamed and itchy due to fleas, mange, ears swollen shut from ear infections, and dogs coughing and too fatigued to take a walk from heartworm infection  - that's the short list.

Many shelter animals come to our center after years of neglect, while some come with recent traumatic injuries.  Our commitment to providing compassionate and humane medical care to the Mutts has prompted us to create The Anne Reed Medical Care Fund. Named for a very special lady who has given so much to help us grow, this special fund will underwrite life-saving medical care provided by Mostly Mutts and our veterinary specialist partners. 

A gift to The Anne Reed Fund will directly fund the medical care of our most sick and injured - providing life-saving surgeries, diagnostic testing, treatment for injuries, and so much more.

Meet Nitro

When the Directors of Mostly Mutts make their weekly trip to rescue homeless dogs from the county shelters, often a dog will call out to them.  Not by barking, but by a look, a vibe, an intangible encounter that almost telepathically cries out, “please take me.”  That was the case with a sweet, fluffy little guy named Nitro.
You wouldn’t know by looking at this sturdy fellow, that he has a congenital heart condition which requires that he take medications for the rest of his life and live in a calm environment.  Experience has proven that there are many passionate dog lovers out there who embrace the commitment it takes to adopt a special needs dog, and we will wait patiently, until the right adopter comes along.  In the meantime, the Anne Reed fund helps pay for the drugs he needs to keep him healthy.  Your support of this fund will allow us to keep rescuing those dogs who deserve a second chance to heal, thrive and be loved.

Meet Superman

The beloved hero we all know had lost his powers but then miraculously regained them.  His mantra became “Up, up and away!”   This special needs dog couldn’t have been named more appropriately, and this catch phrase was embraced by everyone at Mostly Mutts, who yearned to see SUPERMAN overcome his front leg deformity, start walking and find his permanent home.  Mission accomplished, thanks to the generous support we received from donors to the Anne Reed fund, which dedicates funds needed for rehabilitation, therapy and specialized medical care for special needs dogs.  Superman was rescued at 4 months old and suffered from a congenital deformity that caused his front legs to be splayed and dysfunctional.  Giving up hope was just not an option when we rescued this courageous dog.  Superman underwent tireless foster care, using a brilliantly designed customized walker, water therapy, and the unfailing commitment to get this dog up, up and away!  In 8 weeks, Superman had totally regained the use of his front legs, and today he walks, runs and yes, sometimes flies,  in his new forever home.
