Now that we’ve officially launched our Miracle Mutts Program, which utilizes rescue-mutts to help rescue humans, we need our Mutt Militia in Bakersfield to get involved! Here is our DILEMMA: the rescue is an hour and fifteen minutes away which makes transporting dogs difficult. The heat and the ride can be a lot of stress on them. Here is the SOLUTION: Families in Bakersfield that want to get involved in saving dogs and saving people can volunteer to foster dogs that will be used at the Mission for Recovery/Therapy work. Foster families are 100% supported by Marley’s Mutts and need only provide structure and love for dogs that we rescue from the Shelter in Baks. We provide a foster manual and specific support and instruction on how to care for and support these pups. Foster families will work with our trainers until the dogs are comfortable enough to be in a setting like the Mission at Kern. This type of training and work is no more difficult than caring for dogs that you may already have and will be a valuable life lesson in patience, love and an also empower you to a great deal. What better way to be of service to your community than to save the life of a dog that can help save the life of a human. This is your opportunity to be involved in a project that TRULY benefits this community and countless folks within it- the possibilities are limitless! If you are interested in fostering for Marley’s Mutts, please head over to and fill out a foster app or email me directly at
