So many amazing mothers in need right now we so wish we could help them all! But those we do help get the chance they desperately needed. Moms and newborn puppies don’t fare well in a shelter environment. Not only are they more susceptible to the illnesses that travel through shelters but they also aren’t available for adoption to the general public. The shelter is unable to hold them the required amount of time until they can be adoptable so this puts the burden on rescues to get them out. With so many in need we celebrate each little family we are able to save.
Dolly was one of those lucky moms. We pulled her from our city shelter knowing she was pregnant. She waited until she was in the safety of our rescue ranch to gift us with 2 tiny perfect beautiful babies. Dolly is an amazing mother and an absolute sweetheart of a dog. She’s very social and loves every ounce of affection ranch staff give her. She’s also social with the other dogs but we’ve been limiting interaction while she cares for her babies.
Dolly still has awhile before she will be adoption ready, her motherhood duties come 1st, but we know many moms are overlooked by adopters who prefer the puppies. We want to give Dolly all the time she may need to be noticed by just the right family so when she’s ready she can finally have a home of her own.
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.
