Frances the Pomeranian is on summer holiday (not that she was ever a very prolific blogger), so I’m filling in as the blogger for all things canine in San Francisco and the Bay Area. I wanted to share this wonderful news about Sherri Franklin, the founder of Muttville Senior Dog Rescue organization here in San Francisco that is very near and dear to my heart (we have 2 Muttville mutts at home!).
Ms. Franklin has been awarded the prestigious Jefferson Award for Public Service. I can’t think of a more dedicated, selfless, and hard working person than Sherri Franklin. Just last weekend, we attended Muttville’s annual benefit, Moolah for Mutts. We heard and saw first hand the incredible work she has done over the past few years by rescuing older dogs from all over Northern California. Muttville has an amazing community of supporters, and I’m proud to count myself among them.
Here are a couple of snippets, straight from the dog’s mouth… err, Muttville’s blog, that is (thanks, Muttville!).
