On June 11th, 2014 Kern County Animal Services took part in “Just One Day” a event designed to stop euthanasia for one day in shelters across America.  Adoptions went for 11 hours straight.  We at Marley’s Mutts had the privilege to participate in this event by handing out dog food to new adopters and helping people find a forever friend.  The shelter had approximately 120 dogs and cats available for adoption which also means 120 animals that could be recommended for euthanasia.  Instead of putting down pets, for just one day adoption rates were lowered.  The results will amaze you, 103 dogs and cats were adopted!  Congratulations to Kern County Animal Services and all the lucky families who found a new forever friend.  In a shelter where only half the dogs and cats that enter ever find forever homes it was truly a day for the history books.
