Mutts and Runts Rescue was founded in 2017 after seeing the numerous strays, neglected and often abused animals in Bakersfield. Being a transplant, Brandi Reed was taken by surprise of the overpopulation of dogs and knew she needed to do something.  In her first year, 100 dogs were placed into loving homes. 


Our rescue dogs typically consist of strays and severe/urgent medical cases.  With limited fosters and volunteers, our long term goals are to improve our community outreach and financially assist other rescues when they take in cases we aren’t able to physically assist.


Mutts and Runts has extended to serve Reno, Nevada.  Reno, having a large dog friendly community, has the opposite problem of Bakersfield- they don’t have enough dogs for people willing to adopt. Together, we’re able to help more dogs get their happy ending with loving families, additional support of fosters, volunteers, fundraising, and access to a wonderful rehab facility.
