Get to Know Us

In 2016 two of us stood on the top of a mountain in Puerto Rico and realized we were perhaps at the pinnacle of our personal happiness; riding hidden trails, enjoying an unfamiliar culture, and just accidentally living our best lives.

The thought that immediately followed for both of us was that we weren’t giving much back to the communities we seemed to enjoy most and gave us so much of that happiness. 

So the Mutt Society was born. Initially to support the broader community, it evolved to focus on the youth after our first official initiative after Hurricane Maria. In our exploration of what we could do to help, someone now ‘famously’ said, “If you are going to invest in the future, invest in the youth.”

And here we are. Just trying to figure out more ways to leave a legacy of charitable attitude in this crazy world.

    Trent Sanders

    Trent is writing this right now about himself. His interest in travel and helping people is turning into an obsession and everytime he gets home, he starts dreaming about the next trip and how much more impact he can have in the future. His true belief (my true belief) is that the only things worth doing are things that will leave positive energy in the world long after we ride into the mountains in the sky.

    Andrew was there at some foundational times in the history of the organization. His priorities in life seem to be: Family, Friends, Dogs, Travel, and Work. Although, if in order of priority, dogs would probably be first. His commitment to the vision of the Mutt Society and his support over the years has been incredible.

    Tom Loo

    As long as he can remember, Tom has been on some form of two wheels. At a young age, he spent most of his free time riding motocross with his father and brothers. Eventually this translated to a bicycle and transferred him over into the mountain biking community. After riding and racing XC for a few years, Tom realized that he really enjoyed the downhill sections of the trails and pursued the DH aspect of the sport, which was just starting to evolve to what it is today. After all the years of riding and racing, he has created some amazing relationships and decided The Mutt Society was the perfect way to give back to the MTB community that he loves and has given him so much.

FInancial Breakdown:

The following is just a loose visual of how we break things up. As we get more resources, these things will be managed on a more granular level and updated much more frequently. Still cool to see though, right?
