At a compact 30lbs Heinz makes us all super happy. This sweet boy is an absolute gem!!! He’s gentle, he’s kind and he’s wonderful with everyone and everything. Yes everything! Dogs of all sizes, children and even cats he loves them all! He’s so good he passed his Pawsitive Change assessment with flying colors. He’ll be attending N. Kern prison starting in May and will spend the 3 month long program honing his basic obedience skills and becoming an even better dog than he already is! Once he graduates someone is going to get a super fantastic dog and it blows our minds that such a good dog almost didn’t make it out of the shelter alive. 

It was down to the wire for Heniz. With no adoption interest he had run out of time at our county shelter and was euthanasia listed. Lucky for him he had advocates in his corner who made sure he was seen and one of those advocates is currently fostering him until he leaves for the prison program. That advocate and foster spot saved his life! 

Heinz has fully embraced his 2nd chance. He’s a wonderful boy with a happy positive outlook on life. He’d thrive with any family and in 3 months will be ready to find that special home to call his own. Whoever adopts Heinz is going to get really great dog we guarantee it! 



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.



I have had a dog all my life. I had to put my female Queensland heeler down on Friday May 17th due to heart failure. She went everywhere with me. I miss her so much. My household is just not the same. I would really love to have Heinz he would be a great fit.


Please pick me I really need a dog in my home to love. I am retired and I will take him everywhere with me I have a park right around the corner from my house that we would enjoy together.
