Mutt and Mingle Overview

What Is Mutt and Mingle

Mutt and Mingle is an event concept developed by Corrie Sommers, to bring people and dogs together.  Scheduled to launch just as the pandemic hit, Mutt and Mingle was put on the back burner.  Initially Mutt and Mingle was initally going to be a Wednesday evening get together at Michael's on Riverside in the front open area of the resturant, bringing neighbors and beloved furr babies together to socialize and raise funds for rescues. 

In December of 2022, my beloved furr baby Zena, whom I adopted from a Shelter almost 14 years prior passed away from an agressive spinal cancer that paralized her body from her shoulder blades down. It was heartbreaking. 

As I shed tears over and over, I began to notice that there was an alarming situation happening in Los Angeles with shelters and dogs.  During the pandemic people adopted dogs at an astronomical rate, the shelters and rescues were empty.  Yet as people returned to work dogs were dumped at the shelters in droves.  

People blindly trust the "systems" in place without looking at them too deeply.  Unfortuantely, dogs were being euthanized because they reacted to being caged up, or because they had been in the shelter and more space was needed, euthanized because they were pregnant and the shelters had no ablility to deal with puppies and so on.  The more I dug, the more I was horrified. 

In 2023, I partnered with a rescue in the high desert; i5 Freedom Ride.  Owned by two ladies who have committed their retirement years to serving and saving as many dogs as possible. The two are aided by Mike Ryan, who formerly worked with Brandon McMillian (Lucky Dog Ranch) in securing dumped dogs and pups from the deserts heat.

Our biggest successful adoption events have been at the Toluca Lake Farmer's Market which is coming back fall of 2024.  We have held Mutt & Mingle adoption events here on Riverside repeatedly during 2023.  

There's more in store for Mutt & Mingle moving forward. If you desire to be informed of events and adoption mingles hosted by me, please sign up for the mailing list.
