Shelters count on rescues, like us, to save dogs the general public is unable to. This includes medical, behavioral and underage dogs and also includes pregnant or nursing mommas.

We got very pregnant Loretta out just in the nick of time. She was able to have her 2 sweet little ones in a quiet foster setting rather than the much noisier shelter environment. The shelter is no place to have babies and we are happy this family is safe and out.

Loretta is a sweetheart! She loves her people and adores children. She appears to be house trained and has been an amazing mom to her 2 puppies. She will continue to care for them for the next several months and will be adoption ready once her puppies are weaned and she’s been spayed.

  • 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.
