Bows-N-Ties & Muttville

Muttville Senior Dog Rescue “It is Never Too Late for a New Beginning”

Each year we at Bows-N-Ties get involved with a charitable cause, and for 2013 we chose to support San Francisco based senior dog rescue Muttville, a special needs shelter for dogs seven years and older. We were immediately touched by the story of many of Muttville’s residents, and were moved to get involved. Over the next few days we will feature one of these lovely dogs dressed up with a dapper necktie, bow tie, ascot, or scarf. It is our goal to help draw awareness to the cause, and encourage everyone to foster or even adopt one of these charming gentlemen. Should your situation not allow to care for a dog, then there are other ways to get involved, such as volunteering or donations.


I personally encourage you to visit Muttville’s website to meet all its current residents and to learn more about this wonderful non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization, dedicated to improving the lives of senior dogs. To date, Muttville has helped over 1,650 senior dogs in finding a new home, which otherwise would have been put down. Upon visiting we were instantly inspired by the commitment of its volunteers, who were dedicated to the organization’s mission that “It is never too late for a new beginning”.

This Boxer Packs A Pretty Punch

Sugar Ray is that quintessential dog that with one glance, makes you feel like you have a new best friend. Sugar Ray’s has had a sad story where his good-natured loyalty wasn’t returned when he needed it.

We put Sugar Ray in one of our favorite punchy plaid ties and oh boy, did he look dapper.

You can’t say no to these loving eyes! Adopt Sugar Ray today and know that you just scored yourself a one in a million dog. And if you can’t adopt him today, consider contributing to Muttville one way or another whether it be with donations, volunteering or liking them on Facebook. Learn more about Muttville here.
