Bonnie

Sex:  Female
Breed:  Terrier Mix
Age:  10 Years
Welcome Bonnie to the Marleys Mutts family!  This little scruffy girl came from a situation where she was living at a sanctuary ranch with lots of other dogs, geese and horses, and her owner sadly passed away.   We were able to help Bonnie and other dogs out and get them into a foster home.  Bonnie is doing great in her foster home!  She is currently with two other small dogs and three kids to hang out with and does great with them all!  This girl likes to sit close to her foster mom on the couch and relax.  Bonnie also does really well in a crate and is learning how to use a doggy door.  She does need some more training on where to potty but she was living outdoors for years so it takes a little bit of figuring out where her new potty area is.  She's really smart and is picking it up fast!  Bonnie would do great with a family with other small dogs or just be by herself and her new human too.  If you would like to adopt this cute fluffy girl, apply today to adopt her!

Pumpkin

Sex:  Female
Breed:  Border Collie
Age:  8 Years
Miss Pumpkin, affectionately known as Pumpkin Spice, Pie and Muffin, is a senior Border Collie who was rescued from a sanctuary ranch in January where the owner passed away. Since she’s been in her foster home, Pumpkin has become much more comfortable being a dog — she’s playing with her roommate dogs, playing with toys, chewing on bones and asking for as much attention as she can get! Pumpkin gets along with other dogs, but she certainly likes to have her own space (she likes her “me” time). At 8 years old, this sweet girl is still learning what it means to be loved and cared for. She’s also learning what it’s like to live in a home for the first time. With that said, Miss Pumpkin is adjusting SO well, and she’ll make an amazing addition to your family!  Apply to adopt this wonderful gal today!

She loves to go on walks, she is easy on the leash. She has perfect energy with other dogs, playful with the playful ones, and ignores the rude ones.  Her eyes are a little cloudy but she can see fine.

Azula

Sex:   Female
Breed:  Dalmatian Cattle Dog Mix
Age:  8 Months
Azula came into this world as part of a litter of 11 born to their pointer mix mom at Kern County Animal Services. Momma dog (Yue) was picked up as a very pregnant stray. The puppies were born while at the shelter and we pulled the entire litter and momma when the puppies were 2 days old. Azula is sweet and shy girl. We expect her to be a medium size dog when full grown. She is crate trained and working on her house training skills and puppy manners. Azula loves all people however rambunctious children may overwhelm her. She’d do much better with older respectful children. She’s great with other dogs and very playful. Azula’s perfect home would continue with her puppy training and socialization. They would be prepared for an active puppy and ensure her energy needs were met. Think Azula would be the perfect fit for your family? Apply to bring her home today.

California could become next no-kill state as governor puts budget funds toward ending euthanizing

California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) said Friday when he unveiled his new budget proposal that he will put money toward animal shelters with the goal of becoming a no-kill state.

“We want to be a no-kill state,” Newsom said according to the Sacramento Bee.

Newsom’s budget, for fiscal years 2020-2021, would give $50 million to the University of California Davis Koret Shelter Medicine Program so that it could create a new grant program for animal shelters.

The ultimate goal is to help local shelters and “achieve the state’s policy goal that no adoptable or treatable dog or cat should be euthanized,” the budget summary reads.

Delaware became the first no-kill state last year, a designation given once a state reaches a save rate of 90 percent or above in its shelters. Michigan was also designated a no-kill state in 2019.

The proposal is part of an expansive budget plan by Newsom that aims to create more green jobs and address homelessness.

Newsom’s $222 billion proposal includes a call for more than $1 billion in new spending to get homeless families into temporary or permanent shelters. It also requests another $1 billion over four years to prevent, track and fight fires after devastating wildfire seasons ravaged the state this past year.

The budget also calls for $12 billion over five years to take on climate change.
