It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Mighty Mutt alum, Gia. After struggling with a very aggressive cancer over the past few weeks, she passed away on her own yesterday morning surrounded by her beloved family. Her parents were by her side at the hospital from 3am on, never leaving her side. She had her favorite yellow comforter and had her head right on her mom's leg.

URGENT - HELP US GET A NEW VAN
Our Mighty Mutts van died. The gas tank exploded
and (thankfully) no one was hurt. This means we can't transport our dogs or collect food donations at our weekly adoption drives in Union Square.
Our words are kindly offered from our volunteers, supporters and fans alike. They may not reflect the views of the Mighty Mutts organization.
