• 46 animals in the program on January 1
  • 540 animals came into our care
  • 488 animals were adopted to new loving homes
  • Live Release Rate**: 97% 

** A shelter’s “Live Release Rate” is the number of live outcomes (which includes beginning animal count as well as new intakes) divided by the number of total outcomes.

Mostly Mutts Animal Rescue gives every animal in our care the time and support they need to find a loving home. However, because we take in some very vulnerable and sick dogs and cats, including newborn orphaned kittens, seniors, special needs cases and dogs in very advanced stages of heart worm disease—some of the animals in our care do pass away or are humanely euthanized to end suffering.

Detailed statistics for 2016 can be found in the Shelter Animals Count report: 2016 Shelter Animals Count Report and 2015 Tax Returns

Mostly Mutts could not be successful without the support of our 290+ volunteers and 100+ approved foster families. They are the foundation of our organization and their love and dedication to animals is truly admirable. Starting in 2017, we are tracking the total number of volunteer hours and look forward to sharing that information with you when it becomes available.

Our Mission

The mission of Mostly Mutts Animal Rescue and Adoption, Inc. is to work closely with animal control officers and other rescue organization to reduce the number of animals entering into and being euthanized at local shelters.  Mostly Mutts provides housing, health care, training, physical and emotional care to adoptable animals, while we work toward finding them a loving home.  Mostly Mutts is also involved in the community with education and awareness programs.
