Did you make New Year's Resolutions?

If one of your New Year's resolutions was to volunteer more in 2015, then Magnificent Mutts wants you! We are a foster-based rescue and therefore our foster homes and volunteers are what we rely upon in order to be able to provide hundreds of homeless animals the opportunity to find a new home and a new family.

Currently we are in search of:

Kitty Cube Assistants

Event Planners

Foster of the Month

Rachel Ray

It's hard to believe, but Rachel Ray is still homeless. True, she's not out on the street anymore, but our Rachel Ray has been waiting months for her Forever Home, and is eagerly looking to 2015 for a new start.

Rachel Ray and her puppies were rescued from a kill shelter last summer, when Rachel was still pretty much a puppy herself. Since then, Rachel has watched her pups and many other dogs get adopted. She has charmed many people at adoption events, but she still waits to meet her own Forever Family.

Like her namesake, our Rachel Ray is a friendly, confident, and enthusiastic girl with a sunny disposition, a sense of humor, and an appreciation for a good meal. Our Rachel also loves to play, and keeps a collection of toys. She enjoys romping with her dog friends, and loves walks and car rides. Rachel is an expert snuggler, and enjoys all the same TV shows you do. She is always happy to listen to your confidences, and will keep any secret shared with her.

Rachel is a very good girl at home. She is fully housebroken, quiet, and does not take anything that doesn't belong to her. She will Sit and Wait for her dinner bowl, and has no food anxieties. She gets along great with most dogs, and seems to be indifferent to cats. While Rachel’s tough appearance might deter home intruders, her lovable and welcoming disposition charms invited guests. At adoption events, she eagerly schmoozes with children, and will roll over and offer her tummy to them for a belly rub.

Rachel Ray is happy in her foster home, and beloved by her foster parents, but she still dreams of a family to call her very own. Please consider welcoming Rachel Ray into your home for the New Year, and making it memorable year for both of you.


We are a group of dedicated volunteers who provide love, hope, and a safe sanctuary to animals in need. Some of our volunteers transport, foster, feed, and train our rescued animals. Other volunteers help with organizing adoption events, paperwork, fundraising, creating flyers and various other marketing media to promote our organization. If you are interested in volunteering for Magnificent Mutts please visit our volunteer page.

Are You Ready to Adopt?

Adopting a dog or cat is a big commitment. We want to make sure our dogs and cats go to their forever homes and never have to look back. Please read the questions on our Adoption page and answer them honestly. These questions are designed to help you truly understand the commitment you are making to adopt a dog/cat.
