TV feature on Fox News 21

As 2018 drew to a close and our first four dogs were getting comfortable in their new surroundings, the Colorado Springs regional Fox News affiliate, Channel 21, televised a short special on The Old Mutt Hut. Since then, we have found a new Mutt Mama, taken ib eight more dogs and developed a fabulous following of animal lovers who help us with donations of money, time and products. We could not do it without you. To watch the broadcast, just use the link below.


2019 Spirit of the Season Nonprofit Award

As if the chance to ride in a convertible with adoring fans waving and cheering weren't enough, canine celebrities (just ask them!) from The Old Mutt Hut also took home the Spirit of the Season Nonprofit Award at the 2019 Festive of Lights Parade, awarded by the parade committee. Nothing like an award to make our seniors feel like they're Top Dog.
