Hi Zach,
Thanks so much for returning my call yesterday and talking to me about the loss of our sweet Hercules.  As promised, here are a couple of pictures of him.  We just want to thank you for letting us adopt him a year and a half ago.  We fell in love with him the minute we saw him at Marley’s Mutts. He became a cherished member of our family and got along with our other dogs immediately. He was the BEST dog, and we will miss him very much. This was our first experience adopting a dog from a rescue.  We know we will never be able to “replace” big Herc, but I will tell you that when we are ready we will adopt our next dog from you/Marleys Mutts.  You do such a great job caring for, training and socializing all of the dogs you rescue. Keep up the good work Zach and we will see you soon.
Craig, Candace and Cody Eastman

Life isn’t always sunshine and roses and I was reminded of that 10 days ago. It all started about 3 weeks prior when I pulled a couple of pups from the Bakersfield Animal Shelter. Their predicament was typical: stray, no ...
