Before you pick up the phone, read this page!  Chances are the answer you are looking for starts here.

Marley’s Mutts receives many calls each day about dogs needing help.  Due to high volume of calls about stray, rescued or owner surrender dogs, we are not able to return calls about these dogs.  It is not that we don’t care – we do!  We simply have to help the dogs we can and guide our fellow rescuers to other agencies that might be able to help.  Our Mission Statement explains our purpose and policy.
