Why do we as humans feel the need to profit above all else. Why does money outweigh a life? There’s a reason the statement “money is the root of all evil” exists. Stevie is a victim of human profit. Bred time and time again to give her humans the only resource she was valued for…..puppies!


Those humans didn’t value the things that should have mattered in a dog. If they’d spent any quality time with Stevie they could have seen what really gave her value. Stevie is a wonderful dog with a near perfect temperament. She is happy and playful and loving and literally holds no grudges over the lot life has given her. She is AMAZING! Did her former owners see any of those things? No! They saw a profit making, baby producing machine. They literally missed out on the things that make dogs so enjoyable.


Once Stevie held no value she was unceremoniously dumped at the local shelter. He body stretched beyond repair the scars of her multiple pregnancies permanently etched on her figure. No one wanted her with her less than perfect exterior. Again she was viewed superficially and passed over for more visually appealing dogs. But we know better and dogs like Stevie, overlooked because they aren’t perfect, are some of the most amazing dogs they just need a chance!


We are giving Stevie the chance she should have had from the very beginning. Stevie has joined the crew going into our Pawsitive Change Prison program at North Kern state prison. Her inmate handlers will change her life for the better and we know her story will impact them. Life has value. Imperfections leave room for improvement and it’s never too late to alter the path life has taken you.


  • 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.
