Looking for a great little dog? Always wanted a Pawsitive Change pup? Well look no further Mauve just may be your girl! The goodest girl of them all, Mauve came to us from the city shelter. She was so incredibly sick with a nasty upper respiratory infection when we pulled her but after a month long recovery she’s as good as new and ready to take her amazing demeanor to our prison program.

We haven’t had many smaller dogs in the prison program over the last year and it was time to change things up. Mauve is headed into our women’s program in Victorville. Her calm demeanor and sweet nature will help balance the energy of the more energetic dogs in the program and we hope the training she receives will get her lots of adoption interest.

Interested? Get your application in so you can be considered for this sweet girl once she graduates in the next 3 months.

  • 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.
