It’s not uncommon these days for celebrities to get behind a crusade, and lend their image, give their time and money, or give their talent. But there is something special about the commitment to animal rights and the rescue of senior dogs by Go-Go’s band mates Jane Wiedlin, rhythm guitar and vocals, and Gina Schock, drummer.

Being the proud parents of some five dog companions between the two of them, both San Francisco residents have latched on to Muttville Sherry Franklin’s Muttville organization which has rescued and found permanent and foster homes for senior dogs for the past 3 years. Wiedlin and Schock will be celebrity guest judges next week (March 8) at "Do Or Die", a weekly Gong Show-type talent contest in the Castro, where Muttville is the recipient of the fundraising efforts during the show.

Why SF?

BeBe: You both have been to cities all over the country, but have chosen San Francisco as your home. Why?

Gina: I have lived in Bernal Heights for five years now. I love it. I think San Francisco is where kids should be raised to learn tolerance and acceptance. Families should be forced to live here for 5 or so years with their children.

Jane: I just moved to San Francisco weeks ago to Noe Valley with my sister Megan and our 5 dogs. Before moving here I heard San Francisco was a dog centric city, but I didn’t realize how centric until moving here. And, that’s okay by me.
