In shelters, these abandoned pooches usually have a shelf life of several weeks, but this Mode.com documentary profile argues that change is already here! When Muttville founder Sherri Franklin came face-to-face with the uncertain future facing elderly strays, she knew euthanasia wasn't the answer. Instead of cages, rescue pooches at the foundation roam, rest and play freely until Sherri and the Muttville team match them with humans willing and happy to give them the retirement they deserve.
