Sex: Male Breed: Pitbull x Estimated Date of Birth : 06/03/2023 Pepe’s sweet little self is headed into our Pawsitive Change program! He’ll be calling North Kern State Prison his home for the next 3 months. Because he grew up in the shelter system he can be a little unsure and shy in some situations and the training he receives in prison will give him the confidence he needs to thrive! He’s going to be a whole new dog and we can’t wait to see him blossom under his trainers guidance. Pepe and his siblings came very close to never having a chance at life. Because of their dark color and breed they lingered for months at our city shelter. They were growing up in shelter kennels and the smooth floors of those kennels were having a negative impact on their legs. Puppies need to run and play for appropriate growth and development and this crew needed out immediately! We put out pleas across social media and so many wonderful families stepped up to foster giving us room at our rescue ranch to pull Pepe and his siblings. Pepe is dog and people friendly and ready to have training change his life for the better. There are so many juvenile dogs currently in our shelters and their biggest hold up to adoption is a lack of training. Pepe will be getting the training he needs to be a wonderful family member and to find his forever home.


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.
