So many dogs are utterly terrified in a Shelter environment. How could they not be? The smells, the sounds, the energy they feel it all! And what they feel isn’t good. It makes them hopeless and hopeless dogs cowering in the back of a kennel don’t attract adopters. This is why rescues are needed. We can give these dogs the time they require to decompress and show us the dog they really are.
Rex is a great dog! He found himself at the Orange County shelter with no options. His breed and his fear put him at risk of euthanasia. Could you imagine this gorgeous beefcake never having the chance to live? He almost didn’t make it out but thanks to the networking of OC Pitbull Rescue we heard their pleas and stepped up to the plate.
Rex has been settling into the ranch environment. He is still nervous but is starting to get comfortable and is making friends with all the staff. Rex really loves the other dogs. He instantly perks up when he sees another dog and so far all of his interactions with other dogs have been positive. We know this big boy is going to be a fabulous family member he just needs that family willing to give him a chance.
Here’s what you need to know about adopting a cat or dog from Marley's Mutts:
Each adoptable pet will be introduced on Facebook
Each pet will have its own profile here on the website
All pets will be spayed or neutered
All pets will be micro-chipped and shots will be up-to-date
Each pet has their own application to complete—make sure you use the right one (linked from their bio)
It’s important to us that each pet goes not just to a great home but to the “right” home. Our foster parents work with each pet to get to know them and their needs.
We try hard to list all of the pertinent info about each pet on the site so you can choose the pet that will fit with your family/lifestyle. If you don’t see a specific pet on the site, he/she is not ready for adoption. Please be patient and wait until the bio is listed. We don’t decide on a “first come, first served” basis but rather on a “who’s the very best fit.” So, don’t panic.
It’s not a quick process. We receive dozens of applications for each pet so please be patient. If you’re shortlisted you’ll be contacted as soon as possible.
If selected to meet one of our pets and you currently have pets, you’ll be asked to do an in-person pet intro; we don’t do the long-distance adoption thing. If you live out of town, plan a fun road trip to meet the pet in person.
Don’t be discouraged if your application is not selected. Remember, we get a lot of them! Trust us, the best fit for you is coming.
If you’re lucky and you do adopt a super amazing pet from Marley’s Mutts, don’t ever hesitate to reach out to us for training, medication, or behavior questions. We’re here for you, and your pet.
