With all the things we have done we wanted to start a new page so that everyone could see what your donations have helped is accomplish.  we say it all the time but it is you folks who follow us here on the site, over on Facebook, and on Twitter.  Every donation made has gone to help a dog in need and here are some of the things that your donations have made possible.  We will add more as we gather new stories.

Chico the pittie who needed a wheelchair after being hit by a car was helped by the generosity of some folks in Cal City who donated a wonderful wheel chair.

Like Chico our girl Eden had severe trauma to her back end and the doctors who first examined her said she would never walk again.  After carrying folks help with getting us a wheelchair and providing donations for her treatments, she was up and around and WALKING on her own in about 3 weeks!!  All made possible by your generosity.

Penny was a special case that came in.  She had a badly broken back leg but was still in high spirits.  She had one surgery done to insert pins into her leg so that it could heal and recently she needed another surgery to remove the pins and put on a soft cast so that she could continue healing.  Orthopedic surgery can be very expensive and her long term care can also be expensive while she is recovering.  Thanks to all the fans out there we have been able to cover most of the costs with donations and she is going to be one happy pup once she gets her cast off, and that is all thanks to the many folks who have and continue to donate to Marley’s Mutts.

Rookie was found limping near a freeway in Bakersfield with a very broken leg. Some gals that were passing by, spotted him and tracked him down until they could finally load him up. He was shaken and in pain but seemed to almost trust the girls. The Docs at the Bakersfield Veterinary Hospital looked him over well and said there was no way to save the leg, it had to go if he was going to survive and not get an infection from the damage.  The community pulled together and helped us make the procedure possible and now Rookie is running around and jumping like the spunky pup he is.

By now just about every person who follows us knows who this little bundle of joy is, KENNY!!!  Kenny came to us from the Bakersfield Animal Shelter and had a birth defect that caused him to have a dual cleft palate one in the roof of his mouth and the other in his lower jaw.  When we first found him someone had jammed a paper towel into the roof of his mouth to plug the hole, which could have killed him.  After a lot of TLC and attention Kenny started on the road to recovery.  With all the donations that came in we were able to fix his lower jaw, and then started working on plans to get his upper cleft fixed. Thanks to the amazing people at the Mia Foundation we found a way to get Kenny his surgery to fix the upper cleft palate.  An amazing support of Marley’s Mutts gave us his frequent flyer miles to allow us to fly Kenny back to New York where he could get the procedure done.  Kenny is now awaiting his surgery and once done he will be adopted to an amazing family.

Solider was found in an orchard near Arvin, CA. He has a badly damaged back leg. The injury appears to be from impact with a car. A passerby saw him and has been trying to help him for the last week. Even with all the pain of his damaged leg he tries to love and play with his care givers. He is came to the rescue and was evaluated. Soldier-boy will need a few more weeks of rehabilitation and groceries before he will be healthy enough to handle surgery to fix his shattered pelvis. Your donations have helped us get close to the goal we need to make his surgery possible, but with those donations we will make it happen.

Operation Vaccine has been a huge success and it is entirely thanks you people’s donations of money and having vaccines drop shipped to us.  Since we started this endeavor we have been able to completely vaccinate to entire shelters who didn’t have the funds to do it on their own.  This saved numerous dogs from a rampant spread of Parvo that was breaking out in the facilities.
