Mutual Rescue, a global initiative of Humane Society Silicon Valley that supports animal shelters with grants, films and programs that encourage public engagement with local shelters, recently reached out to Giving Marin ad beneficiary Muttville about an adoption story.
The company produced a short film entitled “Great Medicine” featuring Sandy Brychta, who adopted a senior poodle named Cupcake as a Muttville volunteer. Her son, Rebel, owns The Silver Peso in Larkspur and had recently suffered some effects of a serious surfing accident. The story highlights a common thread in all the Mutual Rescue films: rescue animals rescue people.
“We were delighted when Mutual Rescue approached us looking for a poignant adoption story about a senior citizen and a senior dog. And what a story this is! It illustrates diligence, love and the healing capacity of dogs,” said Patty Stanton of Muttville.
“‘Great Medicine’ shows that senior dogs, even when they’ve been rescued from misery or being lost with no shelter, food, clean water or love … have it in them to be grateful for their new beginning and make a difference in a person’s life.”
