One of the best rescues around. Zach and the Mutt Crew work tirelessly every day to find, train, love and prepare numerous dogs for a life beyond the shelter. They take the time to make sure every dog in physically and mentally prepared to go on with life in a loving and nurturing home. They do good works that other groups should strive to equal. California is lucky to have and should help provide funding for Marley's Mutts and help the expand their efforts to include more dogs. They do it the right way.

I have been "following" Marley's Mutts for about 3 years. They have inspired me and taught me more about love, liberation, determination, strength and spirit than I thought I needed to know - I thought I had all of that pretty well covered, lol. I have "liked" and "shared" and watched and donated to them as often as I possibly could. They have shown me the good that is intrinsically within all of us - human or otherwise. I would support them to the utmost and they deserve our help for the work they do. The rescuers, the fosterers, the networkers, the cleaner-uppers of poops, they are worth their weight in gold. Take some time and see for yourself the magical transformations they can work - they will blow your mind!

I love Marley's Mutts. I starting following them on Facebook. There are some awesome people in this organization. They have rescued, saved, given medical care, and have adopted out to loving families, many many animals who otherwise would have suffered demise. Kudos to Zach and his whole crew! I'm loving me some Hooch, Diamond and of course Master Splinter! Please donate to this group, I do and am very happy I can help them!

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 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.
