My name is Tod,I am a member of Marleys Mutts by way of the positive change dog program in California city. Marleys Mutts would bring in hard to place dogs and we would train them. I spent two years in this program and learned so much about myself and about dogs. I have since gotten out of prison and I’ve started my own Dog Training business here in Oregon. I am so grateful and thankful and humbled by all the help and support I still receive from Marleys Mutts. They not only save Dog‘s lives,they have also saved mine. I am so happy in life right now, life is good.

Marley's Mutts is top and superior rescue. I've been watching them for many years and their dedication to animals is paramount. They have a ranch where dogs/cats/senior dogs and even a pig are cared for. Additionally, Marley's Mutts has had a presence internationally and has helped top rated international organizations. Highly recommend this organization. I have donated several times to this organization.

Marley’s Mutts is the best animal rescue out there. They take in dogs from all over and help them find their forever homes. Even dogs and cats who are way too close to death, they get the help they need and become available once they are happy and healthy. They do the work not everyone is willing to do! I love this non profit and I wish I still lived in Bakersfield so I could adopt from them♥️

I met Zach at an event that I was a vendor at locally a couple of months back. He is the most genuine, down-to-earth, kindest human I have ever met. He and the MM team do so much good for these animals and for people. Zach, his family and his team inspire people to do good things and to be good humans.

I have been following Marley’s Mutts for several years. In my opinion, this is one of the best rescue organizations I have seen. They go above and beyond to do everything they can to help the ones that no one else will help. To say this is a dog rescue would not be enough because they have so many amazing programs that help dogs and people. I am very proud to say that I donate when I can because I truly believe in their mission to make life better for dogs and people.

Marley's Mutts is an absolutely amazing organization. I have followed them for years. Each year they grow, adding beneficial programs one after they other. Along with there rescue, adoption work, they have Marley's Mittens, Old Dog Boot Camp and are now working on their Equine rescue and Watch Them Rise program.

My experience with Marley’s Mutts and a Facebook follower and soon thereafter, my family became a foster family for MM. Over the past 4 years, we have fostered 24 dogs from rescue to adoption and have been temporary fosters for many more. Our own family dog is Marley’s Mutts Alumni and she is loved beyond words. Thank you Marley’s Mutts for being a voice for the voiceless, especially when your voice is not a popular one.

I have been a part of a couple of companies that have partnered with Zach and Marley's Mutts going on like 8 years now. I can say, without a doubt, Marleys Mutts is an amazing rescue that continually puts the animals first and cares so much about animals helping people. The effort and resources that go into making Marleys Mutts is incredible and they deserve anything that they can raise. Love this group so much!

I became involved with Marley's Mutts when my dog, Echo, passed away and I went to the Marley's Mutts ranch to donate his cart (he had degenerative myelopathy). Within days I saw Echo's cart being put to use with another dog that needed it. This dog, Naaji, continues to thrive using Echo's cart. From there I witnessed, first hand, how this Organization is dedicated to helping all types of dogs (and other animals) that are in need. Within months after volunteering, I was asked to be a member of the Board of Directors, and have never looked back. I love all of the work that everyone involved does, and hope we can continue and expand all of the work well into the future.

In 2015, I viewed a video on Facebook about a dog who had been physically abused. Hooch was a pit bull who had his tongue yanked out of mouth and had not eaten or drunk water for several weeks. Zach Skow nursed him back to health with love and compassion. That day I became a monthly donor to Marley's Mutts. Marley's Mutts Militia numbers in the thousands now. And Zach continues to dedicate his life to dog rescue with the same love and compassion he showed with Hooch. I am so honored to be a mutt....

I love and respect Marley’s Mutts as an outstanding rescue. They not only rescue dogs and horses, but they also have several programs to help people in need. Their staff works tirelessly, to make all the programs a success. So by rescueing dogs they have also rescued and rehabilitated countless people. Well done!

Marley’s Mutts is so much more than a dog rescue! This organization has a wonderful therapy dog program that services multiple organizations including libraries, recovery groups, and senior centers. Marley’s Mutts has also created the Pawsitive Change program that places shelter dogs in a number of area prisons and teaches selected inmates how to train the dogs in obedience. This gives both the inmates and the shelter dogs a second chance at a better life. Marley’s Mutts also does a terrific job of rescuing, rehabilitating, and rehoming many seriously injured and abused dogs. This is one of the most proactive, productive, and positive nonprofits out there!

I’ve been watching Marleys Mutts for years on facebook never thinking I’d be in a position to adopt one of their dogs because I’m in Idaho. Then I saw Sid and knew he was for me because of his special needs. I was in California visiting my mom and coordinated with Sids foster mom to get him after a lengthy application and phone calls. I drove 3 hours to Bakersfield to pick him up. I absolutely adore my Siddy.
This organization has gone from one guy and his dog to hundreds of adoptions, training, prison programs, youth and school programs, a place for older dogs and now expanding to horses. Zach Scow and his people are an amazing group of giving people dedicated to animals who have no voice and people who are in need. I wish the work they do could be expanded nationwide.

We adopted a senior dog, Libby, about 2 weeks ago. It's hard to explain what a difference this girl has made in our lives (my husband and I are both retired). We so love her! The adoption process was smooth and everyone at the event on August 25th was so helpful. We had a visit from Emma with some paperwork for Libby a few days afterward and answered a lot of our questions.
We're so pleased with the work Marley's Mutts does. Kudos to all involved in this important work. You are needed and appreciated by humans and the animals you save.

I have been following Marley's Mutts Dog Rescue on Facebook for 3+ years on Facebook. I love what they do. I love their prison program, where inmates are tasked with rehabilitating dogs so they can get adopted. I love how Zach invests his heart into every dog, every person and every project.
A few years ago Zach was invited to visit a shelter in Romania. He took time out of his always busy schedule to accompany Tom, a young man from Belgium with a heart for dog rescue in Romania, to visit a shelter in Deva. He posted several videos of his trip there, documenting the enormous stray dog problem in that country and the desperate plight of animal shelters. As a result, I became a regular financial contributor to the Deva shelter and have developed a relationship with some of rescuers. I hope to be able to visit them someday.

Everything I have ever witnessed of this rescue has been amazing. They take in tough cases, seniors, disabled, you name it. They give life to dogs that would otherwise have been slaughtered in our shelters. The time and dedication they put in for the animals is beyond compare, and it puts them on a level far higher than most rescues.

Marley's Mutts saved our dog from China. They fostered her for 3 months, then enrolled her in Pawsitive paws, an awesome prison program where inmates get to train pups. I filled out a questionnaire, and she was a perfect match. It has been 10 months since we adopted her. There were some trust issues at first, but patience and love won out. She is an amazing dog and I can't thank Marley's Mutts enough for the work they do.

Hi, I love dogs and started following Marley's Mutts a few years ago. I loved how they helped dogs and rescued dogs. I followed the stories of the different rescues and loved this organization even more. When we lost our 13 year old dog in 2015, I was sure I was not going to get another. It breaks your heart when they pass away. But 6 months later I watch this old senior dog that Marley's Mutts had rescued. I watched how no seems interested in adopting him, probably because he was 11 years old. Well, I put in my application. I liked that they completely checked out my husband and I and also our house before we could be considered. We did get to adopt Murray and the whole procedure was wonderful for us and for Murray. This organization does so many wonderful things for their rescues. I wish I lived closer so I could volunteer. Best organization ever!! Thank you Marley's Mutts for all you do for the animals and the people in your organization.

I first learned of Marley's Mutts Dog Rescue , when a posts showed up on my FB feed. I have many rescues on my page. I began following Marley's Mutts, as their concept of animal rescue was interesting to me. After following them for over a year, I am so impressed with their program. The rescue of dogs almost no one wants to care for! The prison program and community involvement are amazing. I have rarely heard of a group of people as dedicated to animals and humans as these folks are. The financial, bureaucratic and public relations challenges they face daily, are met with passion , determinations and a "no such word as NO"! attitude. I will do my best to always support the warriors and I hope others do as well !! Thank you, Marley's Militia

I adopted my pup December 1. It was an out of state adoption. Shannon Paris handled the adoption and I was amazed at how thorough she was in making sure Gerry was going to the right home. I sent pictures of my home & veterinarian contact information. Gerry was doing the Pawsitive Change program prior to the adoption. It amazes me that along with rescuing dogs, the rescue gives back to the community with programs such as Miracle Mutt, Pawsitive Change.....They are a very loving and professional community. I will always adopt from Marleys Mutts and can not say enough wonderful things about them

My name is Jassmine I've been with Marley's Mutts for 6 yrs I have fostered over 100 dogs puppies seniors and the special needs. I own Minnie Marvel's sober livings in Kern county and have Incorporated a Foster program at 3 of my homes the clients come from all walks of life along with the clients staying clean and sober throughout there stay most clients come in the program lacking empathy.unconditiinal love and responsibility. Clients choose if the want to help foster a dog or puppies it a great opportunity that let's the women learn basic tranning for the dogs and resposibility and receive unconditional love. At the end of 90 days when the women complete they get a certificate that says they participated in the Marleys Mutts Foster program and the clients beam with an accomplishment and show off pictures and the certification. It also teaches the women to socialize with people it give them a sense of belonging to something. The Miracle Mutts also do temperament testing at our Lilac Location and the ladies also participate in this educational part of Marley's Mutts. The best part of this is the dogs that do get fostered at our programs useally have 3-5 foster Mom's. And the children at the program also participate with socializeing the dogs. At present Minnie Marvel's is Fostering 8 puppies. One adult. There is also a forever program. I have a forever foster Queennie who is almost 16 yrs old she will be with me till the end. The Pawsative Change program is near and dear to my heart am an excon and in recovery with 20 yrs clean. Thank You Marley's Mutts.

I adopted a dog named Maple back in April of this year (2018). If it was not for this rescue going to the shelter to pick up a dog that was brutally mauled and would have died if not for a rescue she would not be here today. Marley's Mutts is not afraid to take on the tough cases and have this ability to work miracles at healing them and getting the dogs adopted. Their fosters are incredible and their backing (Mutt Militia) steps up time and time again. I lived over 400 miles away and when I was accepted to adopt Maple they did not hesitate in working with my schedule to get down there to meet her and bring this incredible girl home. They are supportive, follow through on check ups and are always there to help. I speak highly of this rescue to everyone that I know and encourage people to adopt from them if a dog speaks to them through a photo. I have nothing but praise for Zach, Randi and all the other people who make this rescue the best in the nation, if not the world.

I had been looking for a small dog and saw a picture of Sid Vicious. I complete application, spoke to Sharon Parrish and SIDS foster mom. I planned my trip to LA to see my mom, drove hours to Bakersfield and finally met Sid. He’s a piece of work, grouchy old man and I love him to death. The fosters are pure gold and just love the dogs they care for as if they were their own. They will do anything to help a dog in need.

I have been an active member of ‘Marley’s Mutts Dog Rescue’ for about six years now. I’ve known Zack Skow’s incredible back story since I first heard about his dog rescue organization.
Three years ago, I drove all the way up to Bakersfield from San Diego in order to adopt my precious pup who at barely two months old, was running wild in the hot streets of that city. Marley's Mutts Dog Rescue had found and rescued her and her two siblings. Zach is truly an champion of God sent to earth to save these damaged and throw away dogs. This is truly an organization worth joining and supporting.

I have been volunteering with Marleys Mutts dog rescue for over a year. And every day they amaze me. I am most proud of the Pawsitive Change program. we team up death row dogs with inmates. The inmates are responsible for the dogs care and rehabilitating them into dogs that can be adopted into their forever homes. And in at the same time it is forcing the inmates to open out their hearts to both the dogs and to themselves and their fellow inmates. These people will be returning to society and we want them to have the tools to cope with reality, have a confidence about them that they may not of had when they went in. and a employable trade.But these programs come outta the donations we get. Next is our hospice dogs, our camp golden years dogs. Dogs that are in their final chapter of their lives and we say. "come live out your life with us." No dog should die in the shelter, NONE.We have Miracle Mutts that go to schools, retirement homes, hospitals , colleges to give what i call "Fur Therapy." They are amazing and we rely mostly on donations of the loving public.

I had been following Marleys Mutts for a bit. I started volunteering this year. they are an amazing group of people from all walks of life. I have seen and learned so much. they are doing things that are so much bigger than themselves. One of the many amazing things they do in a long list of incredible things... They rescue dogs that they know may only have a day or may have a month to live and they make sure the dogs goes over the rainbow bridge full of love and kindness. to give a dying animal a bucket list day and to allow your feelings to be expressed on the videos they make is so beyond amazing to me. they have truly helped me be a better version of myself. the integrity of each person in this rescue is ...like they will never know how many people and dogs they have changed with their kindness.

Marley's Mutts is one of the finest rescues I have ever followed and donated to....the team is so genuine and thinks outside of the box in creative ways to get overlooked "mutts" their forever homes. Live videos bring the viewer into the real life stories of often overlooked dogs that turn out to be champions...be it as therapy dogs, companions, or as part of healing for veterans and even prisoners on their way to trying to make a new commitment to a meaningful life. Real people, real dogs, real stories with follow up for those that care. Marley's Mutts makes a difference which leads to as many success stories as you will find out there. Founder Zack Skow is a true hero for our four-legged and two-legged friends alike...the formerly discarded become treasured. We discover the "mutt" in ourselves and realize we make the best beings!

I live in Oklahoma, so I haven't had personal contact with Marley's Mutts, but have followed their page on Facebook for a couple years now. They work so hard, not just to rescue animals , many of which would be deemed beyond help, but in outreach programs. I'm a huge fan of their work, and if I lived nearby, I would be very proud to be a part of this wonderful organization.

There are several nonprofits that support rescue animals that I follow closely and they each have a special place in our communities. If I were limited to one, and I have thought about this before, I would follow Marley's Mutts Dog Rescue and, if I still lived in California, I would move myself closer to Tehachapi so I could be personally involved with this organization. They have great heart, they are brave, they look for and embrace the most difficult challenges, they are smart and resourceful, and they feel every dog is worth fighting for. They stand for all the good this world needs.

I have yet to visit Marley's Mutts as it is a few hours south of me. However, I contribute a monthly donation because I love and believe in everything they do. Their devotion and love for the beautiful animals that would be considered the downtrodden and misfits of doggy society is just something of which I am in awe. Zach Skow, taking his own challenges as a human being, and turning that into a mission and vision for dogs is nothing short of inspirational. AND it does not stop there. The recent drive of 22 FOR 22 to bring awareness to suicide rates among veterans, the Positive Change prison program, the efforts to help a homeless individual and his dog. It is all just amazing. The team at Marley's and the wonderful fosters who help them out are true heroes to me. There are just not enough words to sing their praises. Thank you for you kindness, generosity and devotion. Dash and Blue send their thanks also. All my best, Kim Slavan

Marley's Mutts is a fabulous organization, saving dogs so dogs can save humans. They have an amazing network of fosters who nurture rescued dogs so that they can become beloved pets. Their outreach in their area ranges from spay/neuter clinics to therapy dogs to a 'read to a dog' program, to a prison dog-training program, and probably some other programs I'm forgetting. But their impact is felt far beyond the Bakersfield area - they've cooperated with dog rescues in Thailand and provided foster and an adoption for an Iranian dog as well. And their internet impact is amazing. They've got over a half-million likes for their Facebook page, and over a million and a half viewings on YouTube. Dog Boy Zach and the talented and awesome men and women who run Marley's Mutts are nothing short of heroes, both to the dogs they've rescued, and to the people who have loved and been rescued by those dogs.
