To celebrate 25 years of MUTTS, we’re asking readers to tell us what the strip means to them and to share some of their best memories of Mooch, Earl, and the rest of the crew.
We are appreciative of all the messages we’ve received, and we will continue responses throughout the coming months — so please comment below if you have memories to share. Thank you for the love!
“I have been involved in dog rescuing for over 20 years. I use these comics to further the cause. Thank you for supporting this important cause.” — Carolyn Fine Ellington
“I love the joy all your adopted characters show! So many people still have a stigma about rescue animals. It’s important to show them having a happy and fulfilling life. You’re a great ambassador for the world of animal rescue!” — Jim DeVries
“I’ve always saved the Shelter Stories strips. I’d put them on the fridge so my husband could see them, and I think more than a few times, I saw a tear or two in his eyes. Guard Dog is my favorite. He breaks my heart every time, but I know he has hope, and so do I. I could not live without MUTTS!” — Bev Kerwin
“I volunteer at a thrift shop that supports our local shelter. I frame Shelter Stories and place them around the shop as a reminder of what we are there for.” — Lynne Sorlye
“The Shelter Stories speak to me. I rescued my first dog about ten years ago, and she has been a life-changer for me. Minnie is my constant companion, and the reason I can’t wait to get home. Shelter Stories are my favorite by far!” — Adita Corrales
“As a rescue dog mom and a rescue dog transporter, I love how MUTTS gently gets the message out on the need to rescue and adopt with your charming characters telling their stories.” — Laura Mirmino-Jones
