Muller Rare Coins believes, “When you adopt from a shelter, you’re giving an animal a chance at a loving forever home. We support Humane Pennsylvania because we know they care about the health and welfare of all of the animals in their shelters.” They continued on by saying, “Rescued is our favorite breed! Adopt, don’t shop; you just may find your new best friend!”
