Cali is the worlds greatest mom and she’s taking those amazing mom skills to some humans who can use it the most….Pawsitive Change! This sweet girl and her tiny babies almost lost their lives due to an upper respiratory infection and lack of space at the shelter. But they were lucky. We saved the whole family and they’ve thrived at our ranch. Cali has completed her puppy care duties and is now ready to take those nurturing skills to the men at North Kern State Prison. They need some kindness and Cali can give them what they need. They in turn will give Cali the skills she needs to be noticed by potential adopters. It’s win-win!

Cali like all dogs just wanted to be given a chance at life. A chance she almost didn’t get but Pawsitive Change will give her that chance.

She’s a very sweet girl and was an attentive and protective mother. She loves attention and is super affectionate. She’s been social with some of our calmer dogs at the ranch and has thoroughly enjoyed pack walks both in prison and at the ranch. She really loves the boy pups. She is a pretty calm gal and just enjoys spending time with people. Her future home should have no kitty friends as she does have a moderate to heavy prey drive.

Cali’s ready to learn all she can in prison and she’s ready to focus on her future. Many mom dogs are overlooked by adopters with preference given to their puppies. Our hope is that families will see what a good girl sweet Cali is and that paired with the training she’s receiving will help her find the amazing home she should have had all along.


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.
