For our July 2014 LinkedIn for Good InDay, several of us from our Sales Solutions and Talent Solutions teams volunteered at Muttville - a nonprofit organization dedicated to changing the way the world thinks about and treats older dogs, aged seven years and older, and to creating better lives for them through rescue, foster, adoption, and hospice. Click through to experience our day. Not only will you see how much we enjoyed our time, but the dogs has a blast as well!
One Friday per month is designated as an “InDay” by
LinkedIn, where employees can participate in various
activities. For July’s InDay, about a dozen LinkedIn
volunteers arrived at Muttville, ready to do some work for
a fantastic organization.
A little bit of time for socializing before the work begins.
Donning aprons to protect our precious LinkedIn t-shirts!
Steve, one of the hard-working, expert volunteers at
Muttville, gets us started.
Jolene Hayes, Business
Manager at Muttville, gives
us a full background of what
Muttville is all about and the
incredible work they do.
Jolene talks about the background of some of the special
dogs housed at Muttville.
Diggity is one happy go
lucky fellow. He is a large
pomeranian mix who is
about 8 years young and
weighs a perfect 17
pounds…. He was
brought into the shelter
when his family had to
move. This boy is
adorable, very agile and a
We’re delighted to report
that Diggity is currently in
a loving and caring home.
Thanks to all the
wonderful friends of
Muttville who helped to
make this happen.
Now meet the dogs in Muttville’s
Jalapeño, that’s my name! I am a
gorgeous mix of Corgi and
Pomeranian and everyone who
meets me comments on how
handsome I am! I wasn’t treated so
well in my past but now that I am at
Muttville, I am learning to trust
people. I am even wagging my tail, I
didn’t know it did that!
The leash thing is new to me and I
still get scared sometimes. I am
looking for someone special that can
understand and be patient with me.
Oh, and I’m great with the other
doggies here at Muttville. I’m 8 or so
years old and I weigh 25 pounds. My
short legs can travel, so walking with
my new family would be great for me,
too. I really want to make you
Talk about having a rough life,
this guy has seen some bad
days, but no longer. Camacho
was picked up by animal control
officers after a call of
negligence. What a
heartbreaking scene it was! But
he is out of there and is with
Muttville now! He is possibly 14
years old and he weighs 50
Camacho likes slow strolls and
smelling the roses and other
bushes, too! He is good with all
sizes of dogs and could
possibly be good with cats. He
does have some arthritis and
would do best in a home with
few stairs, though he can use
them at this time.
Sweet Georgia Peach! Poor lady
was neglected and overfed and
overbred….The perfect weight for
her is 55 pounds and she weighs
almost 100 pounds. Even so this
chunk of love is ready for the
challenge; all she needs is an
exercise partner who takes her for
walks and swims! We think she is
only 8 years old and is the
sweetest, super friendly and
She gets along with dogs, big and
small and children also. She has a
pretty smile, she loves giving
kisses and oh my, her personality
is bigger than life!
Whoever adopts her will be very
With looks like this, Bentley is a head turner….Bentley looks like a big puppy and is kind of goofy like
one, too. He will steal your heart. The shelter thinks he is 12 years old, his past is a mystery. Bentley is a
spry gentleman and ready for his new chapter to begin. He weighs 60 pounds and is easy peasy. Great
with all the other dogs and a favorite with all the volunteers.
Small dogs, big dogs,
children and adults;
Bubblicious is an equal
opportunity lover! That’s
why we love her so much.
This wonderful girl has
spent 3 months in boarding
and shelters and no one
wanted to see her get
euthanized but they were
having a very hard time
finding Bubblicious a
rescue. Why? Because she
is 8 years young and 62
pounds. She is a calm and
very sweet girl! she loves
giving kisses and has the
best house manners.
Her previous owners named
her Dog and dumped her at a
high kill shelter in the middle
of winter….She was never
treated like a family member
either. Well, we gave her a
name, Ava, and she is ready
for her life to begin! She flew
up in a private jet almost 6
months after she was
dumped. She still has some
sadness to get rid of but with
all the Muttville love and
everyone helping her to find
her new and improved home,
we will see Ava smile and
shine. We are so happy she
is here and we know there is
someone special just waiting
for this doll baby.
For those active folks who want
an A+ dog, meet “Senior
This boy is sweet, loving and
energetic! He’s the kind of little
guy who is perfect for long walks
and athletic play in the backyard
and dog park! Senior Macho is
the one for you if you are an
active family looking for a dog
that has some pep in his step!
Senior Macho weighs 24 pounds
and is a young 9 years of age.
He loves other dogs and children
of all ages and has gentle
manners in the home. Not a
mean bone in his hunky body!
Sweet and beautiful, that’s
Belle the Puggle. What a
darling little girl. 8 years old
and about 15 pounds, gentle
as they come! Good with cats,
children and dogs. Belle was a
loved member of a family that
fell on hard times.
She is house trained, knows
some tricks and has a darling
curly tail. Belle has diabetes
which is very easy to treat and
we know there is another
wonderful generous family that
will see this girl blossom with
joy again! What a smile she
The mutt’s pleasant dispositions were a nice reward
Bentley gets some ear-scratching in as we listen to
