We at Marley’s Mutts have colossal dreams, the grandest of which is to open a facility inside whose walls the organization can grow and evolve! This will be the Miracle Mutts RESCUE, REHABILITATION & COMMUNITY EDUCATION CENTER. It looks like we might have found just the place to start, so we NEED YOUR HELP IN SECURING OUR LOCATION!

This unique property off Banducci Road is situated on five acres, nestled up against the beautiful Tehachapi Mountains, and within a skipping stone’s throw of Brite Lake. On the property, there is a 2,100 sq. ft. house for office (and potentially living) space. Next to it is a 5,000 sq. ft. warehouse, which may look like nothing more than an empty garage to the naked eye. But to us, it is a blank canvas upon which we can clearly see  -- in vivid detail and color  -- the bright future of Marley’s Mutts’ unfolding.

Here, we will take dog rescue to the next level! For (both human and canine) healing, exercise, education and play, our state-of-the-art facility will have:

  • Swimming pools with resistance currents
  • Doggie treadmills
  • Running tracks
  • Climbing rocks
  • Water features
  • Agility courses
  • Hiking and biking trails 
  • Training rooms and classroom space.

We will utilize the beautiful land surrounding the facility for “Frisky Fitness Youth Camps”, where kids and teens struggling with obesity, addiction, emotional, physical or developmental challenges will gain confidence and learn healthy life skills with motivation and help from furry, four-legged friends; many of these dogs will likely also be learning how to live and thrive again after knowing much darker times in their lives.

Furthermore, our facility will “incubate” a handful of small businesses that will double as job-training outfits, providing viable skills for use in the multi-billion dollar pet care industry. These include the:

  • Miracle Mutts Grooming Salon
  • Miracle Mutts Retail Store & Dog Bakery
  • Miracle Mutts Dog Walking & Pet Sitting Service, and
  • Miracle Mutts Service Dog Training School.

 Through these social enterprises, Marley’s Mutts will be able to:

  • Create jobs and career training programs for people in drug and alcohol recovery, people coming out of incarceration, adults with developmental disabilities, and others who are re-entering the workforce
  • Involve, serve and give back to our community, and
  • Financially support our rescue, rehabilitation and education efforts.

We are building something special here; something BIG and culturally transformative for our local community, and the world beyond it.  But WE CANNOT DO IT ALONE. This project will take an extraordinary amount of money, dedication, hard work and faith on behalf of everyone who chooses to get involved. But I guarantee, the end result will be more than worth the blood, sweat, tears and dollars!

 

PLEASE consider making a tax-deductable donation today, to help fund the purchase of the property, and further development of the Miracle Mutts Rescue, Rehabilitation & Community Education Center. Become an official member of the Mutt Militia, and help us make history!
