Sweet but so incredibly shy Mabel needed someone who understood she just needed time. Time she wouldn’t get in a shelter environment but time we could give her at our rescue ranch. We’re going slow cause that’s what she needs and with just a little patience we know we’ll watch her bloom. Once she does what a beautiful girl she will be!

For weeks she sat alone, caged, the smell of fear all around. This is the reality for thousands of abandoned souls languishing in shelters until their time runs out. It’s NOT a life and for most there is no hope. This will be their home until the very end. Can you imagine how devastating that must feel. Can you imagine the darkness that enters their minds. The peace in that darkness is their only friend. Mabel so desperately needed a friend.

And that’s what we gave. Mabel’s darkness turned to light. There was hope at the end of the tunnel and good people working so hard to save her life a life that almost wasn’t saved. Mabel is getting her chance. A chance she’d never get sitting behind those shelter walls. As ranch staff slowly work to build her trust they are introducing skills she’ll need for adoption. Leash work, basic handling, kennel tolerance. The work is slow but that’s what shutdown dogs need. We hope as she grows and learns just the right family will come along and give her the patient home she never had. After all she’s been through  what an amazing gift that will be.



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.
