Welcome to the Shelter Mutt site and our debut blog post!
Please pardon the dust as our site is still under construction. Shelter Mutt will be fully ‘live’ and full of paw prints in a few weeks.
Shelter Mutt’s main goal is to promote dog adoption. We believe in ‘Shelter Mutt’ pride! We consider any rescue dog a ‘Shelter Mutt’ – from ‘mystery mutts’ to the purebred rescues.
Some of our upcoming blog topics;
