Not much cuter than a pittie puppy. That’s what makes it so unfathomable that little Rue was found dumped at Hart Park a common dumping area for unwanted pets here in Kern County. We literally can’t wrap our head around it but lucky for Rue a Good Samaritan scooped her up and to safety.

Rue is about as sweet and sensitive as they come. She’s very receptive to training and with continued guidance is going to grow up to be an amazing spokesdog for her breed. She’s so receptive we felt she’d be an amazing addition to our Pawsitive Change Prison program. She will be joining the group going into North Kern Prison mid September. She will stay in until she graduates in December.

If you’re looking for a well mannered pittie pup that has the potential to be a super amazing adult dog Rue is definitely the girl for you!

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.
