MUTT MADD-NESS a 501(c)(3) No-Kill Dog Rescue Serving Our Community | P.O. Box 71821 | Marietta, GA 30007 | 404.406.6322 | HOME

The sad reality is that over four million dogs are killed each year in shelters. Why, in a country of dog lovers, are so many dogs homeless? Won't you please help us break the cycle...educate, spay and neuter and in the meantime open your heart and your home to foster or adoption.

It is vital to Mutt Madd-ness that we receive support financially, emotionally and in our struggle to see laws passed that protect animals from an end like so many of these experience. If everyone could reach out, even if it is for "JUST ONE DOG", what a different world for God's creatures this would be.


If you would like to assist us with our medical emergencies our needs, please consider donating to our ...
this fund is earmarked for medical crises that may arise.

Who's in the mood for Chinese?! Meet our Chinese Menu Litter
(9-1 pre-adopted) | Lab, retriever - good old mutts

These 9 sweet pups were dropped off at a local shelter on Mother's Day and were just 2 weeks old, luckily they called us quickly and a few patient and loving fosters bottle fed these sweethearts around the clock until they were old enough for solid food. Unfortunately we don't have any information on mom and dad.

These pups are very loving, paper trained and love to snuggle but also explore.

All of these loving pups are very social as they've been doted on non-stop since they arrived.

Lucy is a 5 year old hound mix, the family has had her since she was rescued at 4 months. Sadly, they have made the decision to re-home due to baby concerns. We are not here to judge, we are here to see that Lucy has the life she deserves.

From the family: Lucy is sweet, loving and can be docile. Crate trained and potty trained. Knows sit, stay and shake and has had obedience training. She is spayed and fully vetted.

If you have any questions about Lucy, please contact Robin at 404-403-6561.




Frida ran out of gas.... Frida is a black and white, mixed breed pup. Our guess is that she is a lab/boxer mix. She was found at a gas station, pregnant. We believe that this was Frida's first litter of pups (and last!) and she was a fabulous mom. Now that her puppies are weaned, Frida needs a forever home too! Her foster family has enjoyed having this sweet girl in their home. She is potty trained, good with other dogs, great with kids, playful yet gentle, and a great companion. She is about 45lbs and 2 yrs old. She isn't destructive and is a quite girl. Frida loves to snuggle with both her humans and doggie foster siblings. If you are looking for a great, easy, already trained dog that has the whole package, come meet Frida!!

Frida and Reef are pals!



Reef is a brown and tan, mixed breed girl. We think she is a hound/retriever mix. She was rescued from a high kill shelter while pregnant. She was an expert mom and took wonderful care of her babies. Now that her babies are ready for their forever homes, Reef wants a forever home too. Her foster family describes her as: shy yet sweet, devoted, gentle, loyal, and once she bond and warms up she is playful. She loves play with her squeaky balls and can even fetch! She absolutely loves other dogs and would thrive in a home with doggie siblings. She is potty trained, good with everyone she had met, and a true bonded companion. We think Reef is 4 or 5 yrs old. Sometime it takes her a little while to get used to her new surroundings, but once she does, she is devoted for life! If Reef sounds like the dog for you, contact us to set up a visit!

WINTER | 5 year old Staffordshire Terrier | F

Meet Winter she is a 5 year old purebred Staffordshire Terrier. She is a sweet and loving girl who loves attention and belly rubs. She plays well with others at daycare in a supervised situation but prefers to be the "only dog in the home". She is crate trained and often finds comfort there but will sleep all night next to your bed on hers. She knows sit, stay, come, kennel up and more. She loves knuckle bones and frozen kongs with peanut butter and treats inside. She does great on a leash and love walks but is REALLY great at being a couch potato too! If you are looking for a loyal. loving lady Winter is your gal.

Fully vetted.



This beautiful mama dog and her pups were rescued from living in the woods.

Zuzu is a very affectionate dog with a wonderful temperament. Zuzu took exceptional care of all her babies keeping them alive, safe and healthy! All of her babies have been adopted to wonderful families.


ADELE | 1 year old | Mutt

We were so elated when we were able to save Adele from a local shelter. She was pregnant and had started delivering at the shelter. She delivered a puppy during transport and once she was in her foster home she delivered 7 more babies, a total of 11. For the first few days the babies seemed fine - we posted adorable photos of mom and babies.
We knew Adele came to us not feeling well, but we were providing her the recommended care she needed to help her and support her babies. Sadly the babies started failing one-by-one. Numerous trips to our vets were made and a necropsy showed the babies suffered from Canine Herpes Virus (CHV), also known as “fading puppy syndrome.” CHV is a viral infection that infects the reproductive organs of adult dogs and while adult dogs usually do not show any symptoms, the infection is the leading cause of death in newborn puppies. As much as we tried, we were unable to save any of her puppies. We are pleased that Adele is feeling better every day and her foster family is providing her with the love and support she needs to move through this trying time.

Albie | 3 year old lab/border collie mix | F (10.26.15)

Meet Albie. She is a very sweet and high energy dog. Because of her drive and intelligence, she needs a person that knows how to handle a dog properly. If you do, she is a great companion. If you don’t, she’s a bit of a handful. Because of this, not only has she been professionally trained, but that training organization will work with the new owner extensively to insure that Albie and the new owner will develop a lifelong bond of affection. This is a great opportunity to get a great dog that needs a good home and learn skills that will serve you well with every dog you ever own in the future. All at no additional cost. This is a value of over $1000.00.

She responds to male handlers more obediently and we believe she is too active for a family with small children. In most cases other dogs would be fine, but probably not cats.

If you are interested in this extraordinary dog, let us know so we can arrange for you to meet her and her trainer.






Everyone say Welcome Back Owen! 2014 Version - Bigger (he's put on a few pounds) and better!

Many of you already know Owen and for those that don't -- what's not to love about Owen - if nothing else he proves to all of us that cats are not the only animal with 9 lives. We think Owen has had at least that many.

We gathered Owen (one of our first rescues as an organization) from DeKalb County Animal Control where he was picked up as a stray in 2009 - why? because he has a face you couldn't say no to and he was such a goof ball. He is the Jughead of the Archie comic books fame-- he is Schultz' Pigpen.

He has come back to us twice - his first family had him for two years and for some mysterious reason he kept ending up in North Georgia and his next adopter loves him dearly, he's just a little much for them due to their home situation. People like Owen, if nothing else he is a very likable guy. One of his North Georgia finders commented prior to his returning Owen to us, that "Owen was very gentle and loved to be with people." He loves goofing around and is, for his age, quite playful. He is pretty good on a leash and does know some basic commands, he'll pretend he doesn't.

Health: Owen has always had a deformed foot from an untreated accident as a young lad - we have had him evaluated by orthopedic specialists and he is not up for long walks - but he gets around terrifically on it and it presents no medical issues to him. He can scamper and frolic with the best of them. Approximately 2 years ago Owen developed a gum disease and had to have all but 1-2 of his teeth extracted and last year he had several seizures which have been controlled by medication. Like I said, he's had a lot of lives. We know Owen is not most people's idea of a dream companion, but he is a nice guy. He is very loving and unintentional in his "bull in the china shop" demeanor. We love and care about Owen and his well-being and will never give up on him.

If you would like to meet Owen we are looking for a foster or adopter with a heart as big as his. Call or email Mutt Madd-ness.






Meet Gilda!

This pregnant feral dog was rescued from a DeKalb neighborhood where she had been wandering door-to-door for a very long time. After 2-3 weeks with us she gave birth to 6 adorable little ones.

Gilda is a timid girl, a lab mix and she is not sure of humans. Our foster is working very hard to help her understand and trust human love and care. She is missing her right ear - no one knows where and how. She has spent most of her life just trying to survive. The first photo was taken the day before rescue - she was living with a pack of dogs and this male was her closest companion.

You can see videos of Gilda on our Facebook page! Please visit.

Her pups were very sweet and absolutely as precious as they are of all ALL ADOPTED!




Mousse | Rottie/Hound | 80 pounds

This mommy dog was rescued from Dekalb County Animal Services just hours before she delivered her litter of pups! Mousse is approximately 5 years old.

Mousse is a beautiful dog who has had some professional obedience training. She is a very powerful, intelligent and observant dog with a strong personality, yet she has a very gentle - loving, affectionate side. Firm-but-gentle training is imperative with dogs like Mousse; she needs to understand that you are in charge. She will do best with individuals who are big dog savvy. She needs proper exercise and mental stimulation, including daily walks. A fenced yard would be perfect for her playtime! Mousse is not a dog park dog - but loves outdoor activity and exploring. Mousse needs proper "controlled" socialization with people and other dogs.

If interested, we would love to share her wonderful qualities with you!



Meet Missy! 3 and fully vetted!

This little 3 year old and is very sweet with people and possibly larger dogs – but for some unknown reason she doesn't like cats and children. It could be their stalking behavior she fears - she's just not telling us! Missy doesn't really understand why someone that she thought loved her would just dump her in Linwood Park, but she's heard from other pups in the park that their owners did the same thing. It seems like it's the place to just let dogs go and fend for themselves...she feels very lucky that Carol cared enough to rescue her and find her a new home.

Missy is young and breed energetic girl - so a fenced yard would be just perfect for this little one. She loves walks and runs too, but she sure enjoys keeping that back yard monitored for birds, chipmunks, squirrels and growing weeds. She also LOVES car rides, seeing the world go by at a car's pace is another favorite thing for Missy.

We're not sure what type of dog she is?? The spots look like a Dalmatian but the face is more staffie, she's stocky - blocky and absolutely adorable. If you are interested in meeting the always smiling Missy, please contact Carol (foster mom) at
