The shelter is no place for a puppy to grow up and that’s exactly where Bullwinkle and his brother Rocky found themselves. They were sitting at Kern County Animal services for weeks. No family came for them and no adopter chose them. It’s truly a sad state of affairs when even puppies are struggling to get out of the shelter system.

So as a rescue we step up. Bullwinkle and his brother joined our young dog crew at the ranch. Bullwinkle is a sweet and lovable guy like most puppies are. He has a moderate energy level for those not interested in a super high energy pup and is already picking up on some of the basics, like leash training, with flying colors. He plays well with other dogs and is ready to leave his old life behind with a future new home. If you’re looking for a great pup with endless potential give this sweet boy 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.
