The most broken little momma at our county shelter was sadly very pregnant too. Sweet Vivian came into the shelter with a messed up leg and an ugly cherry eye. A litter of babies was the last thing she needed but her pregnancy was pretty far along and so she brought these adorable little souls into the world.

Vivian has been a wonderful mom and her babies Buttercup, Carmel, Cinnamon, Ivy and Tank are thriving in foster care. They are the most adorable little crew a mixture of scruffy and smooth coats. They’ve got fun, playful personalities and are nearing the time when they will be ready for adoption. Vivian is also ready to complete her mom duties and focus on her medical needs and finding a perfect family of her own. If you love the little guys these sweet souls will be looking for just the right homes. Get those applications in today!

  • 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.
