Salute to: Mighty Mutts Fostering Network from Brooklyn Dog Walkers

“Never believe that a few caring people can't change the world. For, indeed, that's all who ever have.”
                                                                                       Margaret Mead

In April, Brooklyn Bark Dog Walkers salute a wonderful network of volunteers who work together to change the world.  They rescue the stray dogs of NYC, one at a time, by fostering and then working to find them their perfect home.  

Mighty Mutts changes the world for these dogs.  They provide rehabilitation, veterinary care and often spay/neuter.  And a lot of love.  They also change the world of the person or the family who is fortunate to adopt one of their dogs.

A dog who has been living by his wits, struggling for survival rarely has the social skills to succeed as part of a human family.
