When humanity has failed you and all hope seems lost we can promise there are humans out there who care you just have to find them. That’s exactly what poor Brooks did! Dumped in a rural area of Kern County, likely because his previous family or breeder didn’t want to provide medical care for his horrendous skin condition, Brooks wandered up to the right human. He found a human that cared enough to give him food, water and find him the help he so desperately needed.

Brooks has one of the most severe cases of mange we’ve ever seen. His skin was allowed to get so bad those skin issues turned into secondary skin infections. He was incredibly sick from the infections and that coupled with the extreme swelling in all of his extremities caused him excruciating pain and oozing bloody cracks and wounds all of his body. There was absolutely no reason his previous humans should have ever let him get this bad!

But help was there and Brooks is well on his way to a full recovery under our care. He’s an incredibly sweet boy which makes his current condition all that more heartbreaking. As he’s healing and feeling better we’re starting to see glimmers of the fun loving puppy we know he will be and we can wait to see the amazing dog he will become.


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.
