The MuttShack Animal Rescue Foundation is a volunteer rescue organization based in Los Angeles, California that rescues and cares for lost or abandoned animals with the hope of reuniting them with their guardians or finding them loving permanent homes. Muttshack, established in 1968, is non-profit, and a project of the National Heritage Foundation. 'Muttshackers' rescue animals from shelters, rehabilitate and nurture them to health in homes ('MuttShacks') and find them quality, permanent new families.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the MuttShack Foundation rescued over 3,000 animals.
In 2005, founder Amanda St. John and Martin St. John was honored with special awards from the United States House of Representatives and the City of Los Angeles for rescue efforts and community service.
