To reduce the number of animals euthanized at local shelters.
Since 2004, Mostly Mutts Animal Rescue has been working to reduce the number of animals euthanized at local shelters in metro Atlanta. Often, these dogs are sick and injured and require rehabilitation. Mostly Mutts provides housing, health care, training, and physical and emotional care to them until they can be placed in a new home. We hold weekly adoption events at our facility in downtown Kennesaw to help each dog find their "fur-ever home."
I started volunteering with Mostly Mutts this past June, and I can't say enough positive things about my experience. The staff and volunteers are dedicated to the animals that are rescued, and each and every one of them is shown love and attention multiple times per day. I started working on the first shift (8-10 AM) walking dogs, but quickly added on other roles and shifts. Whether you can give 2 hours a week or 20, our animals and team would love to have you, and they'll show you sooooo much love in return! If you like to walk and get some more exercise, walking shifts may be your thing, but you can also work at the reception desk, help to maintain the cleanliness of the shelter, bathe animals, marketing, social media... you name it, the animals and team will appreciate your help!

I have been volunteering at Mostly Mutts for almost 2 years. I highly recommend them. They are an amazing, well run organization. The safety and well being of the animals is the #1 priority. The staff and volunteers are kind and caring and the animals are so well taken care of. The shelter is immaculate and the dogs get walked and socialized at least 4 times a day. All of them receive training in basic commands such as sit, stay and walking on the leash. The cats have a lovely room with a huge window to sit in and soak up the sun. I also adopted my dog from them and we just love him!!
I want animals to have the opportunity to be taken for and for them to know that there are people out there that care and have passions for animals. If they can't have a good home at least we can provide them with great care.
