Muttville Senior Dog Rescue has had to put 84 dogs into foster homes this week as it temporarily shuts down its adoption events and Alabama Street headquarters, and founder Sherri Franklin is foster 12 dogs at her own home.
ABC 7 took its cameras to Franklin's home for a segment on Wednesday, as Muttville is trying to get out the word about its adoptable dogs. As the organization writes on Facebook, "While so many are working from home, it's a good time for a dog to get accustomed to you and your home, help save lives!"
