About Us

Creating Miracles
for Muttz
Our Beginning

Co-Founder April Moyer adopted her first dog, a Boxer, from Adopt a Boxer Rescue. She was so impressed by the organization that in March of 2008 she became an official volunteer and brought her mom Mary along for the ride.

From 2008 – 2013, they continued to volunteer and became more and more involved in the daily operations of the rescue. During these years, her heart broke for those mixed breeds that she couldn’t do anything to help, especially those on the euthanasia list for the next day.

Our History

In 2012, in addition to helping with day to day operations of Boxer rescue, April and Mary began fostering for an all-breed rescue, Phoenix Animal Rescue. They hoped this would ease some of the pain in their hearts when it came to mix-breed dogs.

In August 2013, it became evident to them that it was time to move on, time to take a risk and strike out on their own as mother and daughter partners in crime. They decided to call this new endeavor Mostly Muttz Rescue!

Mostly Muttz Rescue has saved over 2500 dogs so far and counting.

What Drives Us

Our Mission

Mostly Muttz Rescue is an IRS registered, 501(c)3, public charity that is an all-volunteer, foster based canine rescue striving to keep man’s best friend from dying alone in the shelter system.

At Mostly Muttz Rescue, it is our passion to save dogs with life-long special needs and acute medical needs as well as healthy, more easily adoptable dogs. We believe that every dog, regardless of health, deserves a fighting chance to live, to love and to be loved for the duration of their lives.
