Marley's Mutts is wonderful. I hope they can continue their work as long as it's needed saving these dogs that so desperately need help. It is our responsibilities as humans to help these animals that rely on us to watch over them and Marley's Mutts goes above and beyond for these dogs. I wish & hope that more organizations were out there like Marley's Mutts. These people are so amazing and we need more like them. Thank you for all you do. Sending love to all of you.

I think this rescue organization is wonderful! I look forward to their pictures and posts daily on Facebook and Instagram. They not only bring joy to countless furry friends in need, but also to thousands of Us at home that have the same passion for helping animals . They inspire others to do great things. They dedicate so much love into each animal they rescue, it's astonishing. They give hope to the hopeless. :). I know they will continue to do great things!!

I love animals and have a broken heart when i see a story of abuse towards them. I came across MM a yr or so ago but forgot how. I of course read their stories and clicked liked so i could follow them. I so many times wished i lived on the west coast so i could volunteer for them...i live in Maryland. I love how they get personal and down to earth with everyone that follows them. Splinter and Hooch are 2 of my fav stories. Zach and Amy and the many others are great people and hope they continue with their rescues and rehabs of the precious furbabies that need their help.

What an amazing organization run by amazing volunteers! We adopted our pup Bear from Marley's Mutts. I donate to many organizations but my favorite is MM. I love the updates they give on the dogs they've rescued as well as starting a MM Alumni where we can share updates on our adopted boy.

Marley's Mutts Dog Rescue is a remarkable rescue. The transformations I have followed online with them is out of this world. Zack and the MM team are an inspiration to me and I wish there were many more like them.

Marley's Mutts is a diamond when it comes to dog rescues. I only wish I lived in California so that I, too, could be part of such a wonderful, humane, loving rescue that saves hundreds of beautiful dogs who would otherwise, be euthanized or die of injuries, hunger and abuse. I am a Senior Citizen, living in Central Florida, but I support this rescue with my love and faith all the time, and dollars when I can. Zach is an amazing man with the passion and love it takes to do such great work. All of the hard working people at Marley's Mutts deserve accolades for the wonderful, sometimes heartbreaking, work they do tirelessly day after day. Nothing is surmountable for MM when it comes to saving God's beautiful creatures known as "dogs".

I have been following Zach and Marleys Mutts for a while now. I love how they let you connect with not only them, but with each and every dog that they rescue through updates, videos, and comments. And they ensure each and every one finds not just a home, bit the perfect home for that specific dog. And because we get so invested in these dogs stories, they keep us up to date with their lives after they get adopted. Everything that they do shows how much they love and care for these animals. They are awe-inspiring and absolutely amazing. God bless them!

Since hearing Zach's inspirational story of overcoming his addiction thru the help of rescue dogs, I have seen a movement from MM followers that embodies the determination to help discarded/abused animals far greater than any other organization. It is awe inspiring to see so many people show so much compassion because of one person's willingness to pay it forward; thanks Zach!

The work and love that this organization has done and continues to do, is not only amazing and absolutely heart wrenching at times, but overwhelmingly selfless. It is because of people like Zach and his crew of wonderful, caring souls that the voiceless get to live and be loved and give love. In this sick world we live in, where abusers roam free and the innocent are left to rot or worse... It's angels like this organization, who have made it their calling to stand up and save lives. I can't thank you all enough, for what you do each and every day.
What you do, Zach, has been my life long dream ever since I was a child. I don't have any talents or skills that are useful, other than my compassion for animals and my love and desire to provide them with love and protection and a forever home worthy of them.

Marley's Mutt Dog Rescue, Far exceed their role as a rescue. They are warriors in a battle to end overpopulation; one spay, neuter and adoptions at a time. Hard luck cases are not passed up for another dog that may be easier to place, this rescue fights a tremendous campaign everyday to help Kern County's helpless dogs.They ALSO have amazing, inspirational, dedicated programs to educate, inspire and assist. Astonishing people!

Ever since I started to follow this rescue group I've seen all the amazing transformations of the poor dogs that went from hopeless to happy, sick to healthy, and homeless to forever homes.
Those dogs are truly blessed to have been rescued by Marley's Mutts. One day, some day, I wish to be a part of that rescue group. They are the angels sent from heaven to help the helpless.
God bless you Zach.

I've never been so impressed with a canine rescue organization. They take in the sick, injured & unwanted and give them the love and healing that they so desperately need. If that weren't enough, they also provide structure, training & foster homes to prepare these awesome dogs for their forever homes. No wonder they get adoption applications from all over the country.

Marley's Mutts is an outstanding organization! Their selfless acts of love, thoughtfulness, and caring are evident in everything they do. Even when they think there may be no possible way to help, they MAKE it work. They love unconditionally, just as their dogs do. If all people could be so passionate...

This organization has shown us, the general public, what has been missing out there to make this a better world: true compassion, sincere unconditional love for animals, strength for those who cannot defend themselves. Zach Skow and all of MMDR's staff have, and continue to, dedicate their time and efforts towards saving and bettering the lives of these dogs. It is unbelievable their strength and enthusiasm. Watching them care for Splinter, Hooch, Diamond, Lil Zach, Miss Amanda, one can only wish we could all be part of this great organization.

I live in Baltimore City, Maryland and I have never seen a rescue group like Marleys. The extent that they go to to give a dog the life it deserves amazes me . They follow thru with each and every dog they rescue. NO matter the horrific story that comes with that dog, they make sure that abused dog will never have a life like that again. The medical care that they seek out for each dog blows me away. From the wheelchairs, to the surgery to the meds needed to make sure these dogs have amazing lives is beyond comparison. I support them 100% in every thing they do . I love Marley's Mutt Dog Rescue and tell everyone about them. I have the calendar hanging at my desk at work and tell the story of each dog to any client that will listen. I work for a law firm, nothing to do with rescue groups at all, but I pass along Marleys wonderul work around as much as I can

They are a wonderful organization. Each person works tirelessly to make sure each dog has a fighting chance. They have rehabilitated abandoned and abused dogs that would have been put down if they remained in a shelter. Some of the dogs have been used as fighting/bait dogs, as well. Marley's Mutts never gives up and does everything they can to show love and compassion in order to gain the trust of the dogs, who, up until they were rescued, had been let down by humans.
