What we aim to solve

Marley's Mutts Dog Rescue is a registered 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization (30-0636031) that is concentrated on saving the lives of Kern County's incarcerated canines. Kern County's shelters are bursting at the seams and register some of the highest euthanasia rates in the country. We are committed to these shelter dogs simply because they have NO ONE and are closest to death. These dogs are at the shelter because they have been abandoned, lost, neglected, discarded or abused and many of them have no way out but RESCUE. These dogs are without family, love or representation and we aim to save as many as we can. We are their rescuers, their voice and their future.

Marley's Mutts Dog Rescue aims to save as many dogs from euthanasia by finding them new homes through fostering and adoption or transporting them out of Kern County to other No Kill rescues. We also aim to motivate and help others that are struggling with addiction or troubles by giving them the tools to learn how to instruct and train dogs while also allowing them to help dogs become trained and adopted.

We utilize 6 different programs to help with our strategy to accomplish our goals. The first is our Spay and Neuter program that help low income and vulnerable population afford service for there dogs, which we have helped well over 2000 dogs through this program over the last 5 years. Our Mutt Movers program allows us to transport dogs out of Kern County to other rescues and shelters in LA County, Santa Barbara County, and to the State of Washington to save them from euthanasia and get them to areas that can help them be adopted. We have developed a rescue and rehabilitation program that has allowed up to build up a large foster network that we are able to use to save dogs from shelters on a weekly basis to help get them adopted into a loving and caring home which saves them from euthanasia. We also have Pawsitive Change Prison Program that is a comprehensive and progressive hands on inmate vocational training program that is in multiple California Correctional institutions and juvenile institutions. Miracle Mutts is a program that brings a therapy and educational program to schools in Kern and LA County areas to help education the next generation on animal welfare and rescue. It also brings healing through the human and canine bond to all levels. Our strategies for success happen through a calculate and coordinated marketing and implementation through our social media and direct media outlets to make kern county a no kill county.

All of our programs that we have established have made a clear difference in the communities that we have reached. We have found a steady increase in all of our programs with support and success over the last 3 years.

We are able to track our progress through the amount of people we are able to educate, the animals saved, and the county kill rate. We look at the average kill rate from year to year to see how the live we save are impacting that rate.

We have successfully cut the kill rate in Kern County from over 80% to under 40% in 5 years and in the process have saved over 5000 dogs. We have educated tens of thousands of students and we have currently vocational trained 125 men in the prisons which we were able to get 200 dogs adopted through this. Our social media has an impact on all 50 states and has reached over 40 different countries. We have also certified over 100 dogs to help in therapy and given them a life in service.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
