Warriors are among us we just have to look to see them. In rescue these broken souls cross our paths regularly. They come to us wounded and vulnerable. Their stories are sad and often heartbreaking. Our job is to help them have the courage and strength needed to recover. And recover they do. Because warriors are not simply born they are made!


Tanzee lost her only family in an instant. Her mom passed away suddenly and she was all alone. We know there were people caring for her but somehow she ended up at the shelter broken and confused. She is torn, fractured and forever altered. But with the help of her amazing foster we are seeing glimmers of that fighting spirit. She will overcome the obstacles life’s thrown her way and we can’t wait to see the beautiful and strong warrior left in its place.


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.
