Next Event: 9/27 Cats at Hillside PetCo, Dogs at North Riverside

September 2014 Newsletter

Summer has slipped away and Fall is rolling in, bringing with it plenty of adoption events for you to get your puppy or kitten fix! Magnificent Mutts has many dogs and cats up for adoption through the website and through our many upcoming September adoption events. We hope you can make it to one of them! Be sure to follow us on Facebook in order to get daily updates on what is happening at Magnificent Mutts. We also love seeing our alumni so please send us your pictures or share them with us through Facebook!


We need your help!

Magnificent Mutts is in desperate need of foster homes and donations for our dogs and cats. We are a foster based rescue which means that we heavily rely on our volunteers for help. Magnificent Mutts also takes in extreme abuse or neglect cases which means that more time, money and care need to be provided for those animals. If you want to see our most recent neglect rescue visit our Facebook page and meet Harrison.

Please consider Volunteering, Fostering, or Donating. Every little bit helps!

Volunteer of the Month!

Meet Griffin! He helps out with the dogs and cats at Magnificent Mutts. Thank you Griffin for all that you do!

Halloween Event!

September has just started but we want to get the word out about our upcoming Halloween event on Saturday October 25th. The event will take place at Elmhurst Animal Care Center and everyone is welcome! We will have raffles, vendors and pictures! We hope to see you and your four legged friends there!


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.
