Sherri Franklin has been recognized as a CNN Hero for the senior dog rescue center she founded in San Francisco. She was a hairdresser who rescued a cat cowering under a car and took it to the SPCA. The dogs seeking attention in kennels there moved her to tears, so she volunteered to walk them 5 days a week.
She noticed how hard it was for older dogs to find homes, so she started adopting them to offer them love and keep them from being euthanized. She established Muttville to give these senior dogs medical care and find loving homes; since then, the organization has rescued thousands of senior dogs and become a model rescue center nationwide.
Ken & Nancy Becker have adopted 5 senior dogs from Muttville.
Thanks for joining us, Sherri and Ken.
