Marley's Mutts are an amazing group of people! They are always positive, they reach out to the community, they really make a difference! Their spay and neuter program is a great idea for trying to get the root of the stray and overpopulation problem. They deserve an A for effort and an A+ for their success and I am proud to be a donor!

I live 10,000 km away on a different continent, but Marley's Mutts special mission "Rescued dogs, rescuing people" touched my heart from the first time. Thank god the world is full of such guardians helping animals getting out of unbearable situations. Being a MM fan is good for your heart, your soul, and good for your belief in the good. Daily video updates and emotionally written reports makes you a part of the journey, no matter where you are living. A day without MM news is a wasted day. I keep my fingers crossed for the big dream of opening an own dog rescue ranch. Love you guys, you brighten my day!

Beyond rescuing individual dogs, Marley's Mutts impact will realize through the fantastic work they do educating the community on responsible and humane dog ownership, and by the spay and neuter campaigns. Massive dog pull outs from shelters and partnerships with other organizations make it special and guaranteed to succeed. Zack and his crew are exceptional human beings that touch us everyday with their acts of compassion and giving spirit. They are experts in dog behavior and they know what is best for dogs. I will always support MM.

Since seeing "MARLEY'S MUTTS DOG RESCUE" on FB, I've been following this page and every time I see a new post I am so amazing at all the work and devotion the Mutt Militia have done to rescue and care for these poor little furry souls. They never give up no matter how difficult the case may be. I haven't started donating on a regular basis, but plan to do so soon, they need our help ! Since being on FB I've come across a lot of animal rescue organizations, but never have I seen one quite like Marley's Mutts !

Marley's Mutts, Zach, and the entire 'Mutt Militia', have been an extraordinary benefit to injured, abused, neglected, and afflicted dogs in our community and beyond. These giving, caring people, not only rehabilitate these poor dogs, but they arrange for foster families, and FurEver homes as well. Zach's rapport with the community has been incredibly instrumental in garnering wonderful support from not only pet lovers, but also medical advocacy for Marley's 'Mutts'. His passion for the cause keeps the origination thriving and moving forward in its objective of helping these otherwise 'helpless' FurBabies, and with Zach at the helm, Marley' Mutts will be able to achieve the rehabilitation and re-homing of scores of dogs who would have otherwise perished.

Beautifully organized nonprofit. Strong structure with amazing connection to the general public. They stay humble despite the (hopefully even more!) growing they have done. Amazing. Five stars all around!

We have adopted two dogs through Marley's Mutts and known the founder for about 5 yrs. We have numerous friends who have adopted their dogs here as well. We have always found the organization well-run, the dogs extremely Well-cared for and a very dedicated, small staff of volunteers and fosters. As this organization has grown, they improve their own skills and the quality of the rescue through extensive training, hard work and dedication.

Have been following for a while and finally met Zach. His purposeful intentions and his dedication to rescuing the dogs/community involvement are commendable & admirable. I'm particularly humbled by Marley's gracious support of international rescues on top of all that they're doing already. Having experienced fostering & looking for adopters, there's so much worked involed and I truly value all their efforts! “Saving one dog will not change the world, but surely for that one dog, the world will change forever.”
