MuttShack Animal Rescue Campaign to "Save Our Shelter Pets" With Big Red Adoptions Bus

Offsite pet adoptions is the key to getting shelter pets out there directly to the public

Puppy mills are factory-like breeding operations where dogs suffer most or all of their lives in overcrowded cages supplying puppies for profit. Irresponsible breeding coupled with minimal veterinary care and neglect often lead to a host of health problems and genetic disorders in their offspring.

Thousands of puppy mills exist in the United States, as well as overseas, and the dogs they produce are sold via the Internet, newspaper ads and to brokers and pet stores across the country. The overwhelming majority of pet stores (just about all) obtain their puppies from puppy mills or puppy mill brokers; this is the only way for them to have a constant supply of "stock."

Puppy mills are factory-like breeding operations where breeding dogs suffer most or all of their lives in overcrowded cages in constant pregnancy to create an endless supply of puppies for profit. This irresponsible breeding is coupled with minimal veterinary care and neglect often leading to a host of health problems and genetic disorders in their offspring.

Thousands of puppy mills exist in the United States, as well as overseas, and the dogs they produce are sold via the Internet, newspaper ads and to brokers and pet stores across the country. The overwhelming majority of pet stores (just about all) obtain their puppies from puppy mills or puppy mill brokers. 

Don't buy while shelter pets die. 

But while puppy mills thrive, animals are killed by the thousands in shelters.  Why?  "Generally, pet stores succeed when a shelter is not meeting market demand or competing effectively, and because animal lovers do not want to go into a shelter that kills the vast majority of the animals" Nathan Winograd The key to getting people to adopt shelter pets, is offsite adoptions. 

"Our ambition is to fill the bus up with cats and dogs and set up adoption events at locations and public events throughout the city.   By taking animals to where people work, live and play, we want to make it easy for them to adopt a shelter animal rather than buy one from a breeder, pet store, or elsewhere." says Amanda St. John, Founder of MuttShack Animal Rescue.

HERE'S THE STORY!

"Now we'll get our Magic Bus! Now we'll get our Magic Bus"

There is this amazing red double decker we want to buy and transform into a Magic Pet Adoptions Bus. Rescues and shelters in Los Angeles have lots of adoptable shelter pets to bring to all the fun Los Angeles events; fairs, mall promotions, and festivals.

The bus has a crazy up and downstairs space which we can jam pack with adorable shelter pets. Imagine as many as fifty animals a day finding their new homes and cheating their shelter deaths.

Please join in to save cats and dogs.

Our sponsors can get a ticket to ride and come and enjoy the adoption festivals! Also needed, mechanics, woodworkers, artists, pet fosters, and volunteers galore!

WOOF! "You know, I think this bus, is going to take me, to where I want to go!"

Amazing The Katrina Promise an Animal Rescue Project ! 

 

MuttShack Nominated for Humane Society of Louisiana Award   Read More

 

 
The Katrina Promise

When Katrina hit, an incredible group of dedicated volunteers went to East New Orleans.  Despite overwhelming devastation and hardship they rescued over 3,000 pets.  MuttShack operated a MASH unit, pet shelter and an aggressive dog clinic run by Jim Crosby, canine aggression specialist.

MuttShack then stayed and lobbied in support of Senator Fontenot's Pets Act, winning the right for people to evacuate with their pets.  But the crisis is not over
