In rescue we really shouldn’t be shocked anymore but unfortunately we still often are. Kern County Animal Services reached out with another urgent case. This poor little guy was intentionally hit by a car on a residential street. How did they know it was intentional? Well Good Samaritans saw the whole incident happen and rushed to help the dog. We are incredibly thankful for the kindness of those individuals as they saved his life! And the people who chose to run him over? We have no words and it saddens us beyond belief that there is still such evilness in the world

We’ve named our new little dude Curtis to honor those who helped him as they lived on Curtis street and stayed with sweet Curtis until help arrived. This guy was pretty busted up and needed surgical repair of his leg. He’ll spend the next several weeks on strict crate rest so he doesn’t damage his surgery site or his newly repaired leg. So far he’s a happy go lucky little guy and once he’s adoption ready he’s going to make a family very happy.

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.
