Breed: Queensland Heeler x
Estimated Date of Birth : 04/10/2023
A whole community helped this little family and that’s exactly what community is all about! Mom Zelda was found in a field in Tehachapi where she’d been abandoned and living for months. Employees from a nearby business were feeding her what they could. They felt bad and posted looking for help. Another kind human stepped up to foster independently. Just a few days after arriving to this fosters home Zelda surprised her with a litter of puppies. This foster wasn’t backed by a rescue and wasn’t equipped to foster an entire family. Our shelters are full and sadly most rescues are too.
Although we have very little room ourselves Tehachapi is a small community and if we can help we will. Zelda and her 4 pups came into our care and are now safe with us because so many cared enough to do their little bits of good. This families future just got a whole lot brighter. The puppies will be raised in foster care instead of on the streets and will be adoption ready in another 8-10 weeks.
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.
