San Francisco Pet Adoptions: Senior Dogs Need A New Home (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

This week, the HuffPost SF’s pet adoption series has a new batch of animals begging you to take them home.

Our current array of dogs comes from Muttville, a senior dog rescue that saves dogs more than seven years old at shelters all over California. Many times Muttville is the last resort for dogs that have been abandoned or abused by their previous owners.


If you want to meet the dogs in person, the Muttville team will be at Dogfest in Duboce Park this Saturday, April 14 from 11:00 – 4:00. The event is open to both two-legged and four-legged friends and includes jump houses, face-painting, carnival games, a raffle, auction items and food. All benefits go to McKinley Elementary School.

Muttville also sponsors a "Seniors for Seniors" program, where the adoption fees are waived for senior citizens who want to take someone their own age home.

All the dogs featured are spayed or neutered, up to date with vaccines, and are treated for other medical and general care before being made available for adoption. The adopters are set up with a complete welcome kit.

If you’re looking for a slightly younger crowd, next week may be your lucky chance to find the newest addition to your family.

Take a look at some of the adorable seniors available for adoption below:
