Old dogs, new tricks: Muttville volunteers are giving second chances to senior canines

There is joy in Muttville.

It’s in the organization’s volunteers, who eagerly line up to take the old dogs for a walk, who offer to foster them in their own homes or who agree to help out at weekly adoption fairs across the Bay Area.

It’s in the face of Muttville founder Sherri Franklin, who felt compelled to save senior dogs that would otherwise waste away in caged sorrow.

But mostly it’s there in the rekindled spirit of the dogs — rescued from the pound, spared the euthanasia needle and given a late-inning shot at happiness.
