About Us

Our 'rescue' journey began just about four years ago when my brother stumbled upon two lost dogs.

Left unclaimed and unwanted, they faced the heartbreaking prospect of a local shelter, heading towards the euthanasia room. I couldn’t stand by and watch them die... so I fought, begged, and pleaded for help. But all my efforts fell on deaf ears, so I took matters into my own hands and have never looked back since!

I managed to find those dogs wonderful homes (after getting them fixed, of course). Yet, this experience revealed a huge need to assist the stray, homeless, and unwanted dogs in our community.

Over the past four years, we've rescued, chased, trapped, and provided care for hundreds of dogs, even enduring the pain of breaking both ankles in pursuit of a stray pup!

I'm deeply passionate about this work, and I'm grateful to have the support of many friends, family, and community members who contribute as donors and volunteers.

Rescue in Action

The work of Mell's Mutts is "boots on the ground"; with both their leader and an  army of volunteers putting their passion for saving animals in action. 

Without a physical facility, Mell's Mutts
is completely foster based as dogs move toward adoption. We could not do this work without our foster homes.

The work is sometimes relentless and unforgiving, but we are grateful for the support that allows us to do this work. 

We are a 501(c) nonprofit.

Mell's Mutts was given the non-profit 501c3
“Buy, Sell, Rescue Inc.” by a good friend; a real estate broker who wanted to infuse his real estate business with his passion for rescuing dogs. We do business as Mell’s Mutts.

We are registered under EIN 82-2006642.
