Sweet, social, amazing these are all perfect words to describe Trixie. Shes an incredibly affectionate girl ready to find a new family of her own! Want dog social? She’s got you covered. Want loving? She’s all that and more. Want happy and fun? She can do that too! She’s a great dog who sadly was returned through no fault of her own.

It’s been a rough year in rescue. Adoptions are slow and then there are the returns. Good dogs who should have had their forever homes but sadly lose that home through no fault of their own. Trixie is one of those dogs. Adopted as a tiny puppy this sweet girl lost her family due to their personal medical issues. It’s not her fault but sadly her life changes because of the change in family circumstances. As thankful as we are to give our dogs a safe place to return it doesn’t change how much that return hurts our hearts.

Thankfully Trixie is a really good girl and we’re going to give her every opportunity to be seen yet again. She’s headed into our Pawsitive Change prison program at North Kern State prison starting in May. Not only will she gain invaluable training skills but the program will boost her visibly and hopefully find her a new family to love. She deserves this chance and we can’t wait to watch her shine!



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.
