The couple formed the Mr. Mo Project after experiencing the panic and heartbreak of expensive veterinarian bills for their senior dog Mo. Recognizing that many senior dogs are abandoned or surrendered to shelters because their owners are unable to pay for their care, Chris and Mariesa formed the Mr. Mo Project and are determined to ensure that the elderly dog population nationwide is cared for.
MR. MO PROJECT
Our mission is to rescue senior dogs from shelters nationwide so they can live out their lives in a loving home setting. Mr. Mo Project coordinates the transport of senior dogs from all over the the United States, recruits foster families for the dogs, and provides ongoing support by being a partner in the dogs’ care including paying the medical and vet bills for the duration of their lives.
MR. MO PROJECT
The Mr. Mo Project is run by Chris and Mariesa Hughes and is an established 501(c)(3) non-profit group responsible for saving countless shelter dogs since 2014. Together, with rescue affiliates and committed volunteers, they fight to save senior shelter dogs nationwide, to honor the life of their late and beloved senior dog, Mr. Mo.
SPONSORS & COMMUNITY
With generous donations from Team Mo Sponsors, and the amazing Mr. Mo dog rescue community, all program dogs enjoy veterinarian medical bill assistance for the duration of their lives, free transportation to one of Mr. Mo Project’s generous foster homes, as well as other great benefits including food donations and discounts at sponsor businesses. Chris and Mariesa live in Clifton Park, NY with their eight senior rescue dogs.
