How do you go from being a successful hair stylist who uprooted herself to move to the Bay Area to founding a senior dog rescue non-profit? That's the story of Muttville Founder and CEO Sherri Franklin.
In Part 1, Sherri takes us on a journey from LA to the Bay Area. She shares her experiences in the 1989 earthquake. She ends this episode with her early volunteer work with the SFSPCA.
Sherri loves animals.
In Part 2, she starts off talking about Heidi—an eight-year-old Bassett hound who inspired Sherri to do something about senior dog care. And so, she founded Muttvile Senior Dog Rescue in 2007. Today, Muttville has found forever homes for more than 7,000 senior dogs, and they place 1,110 dogs in homes every year.
If you're interested in fostering or adopting a senior dog, or you just wanna spend an afternoon among them, please go to Muttville's website for more information.
We recorded this podcast at Muttville in July 2019.
