The History of Marley's Mutts

Marley’s Mutts is a non-profit organization that rescues, rehabilitates, trains and re-homes death row dogs from Kern County’s high-kill animal shelters. In addition , we utilize the rescued dogs to transform people’s lives. Through the power of the human-canine bond, we empower dogs and people to live healthy, happy and productive lives.

Learn More About Our Pawsitive Change Program

Pawsitive Change is a progressive and intensive rehabilitation program which matches death row dogs with inmates inside California State Prisons. Our goal is to reduce inmate recidivism by providing them a viable skill, while at the same time saving dogs lives. The program is guided by experienced trainers over 14 weeks, during which the inmates work towards vocational accreditation and the dogs towards their AKC’s Canine Good Citizen Certification.
