Meet Maki

Maki is a 2-year and 1-month-old Shepherd mix currently being held at the Kern County Animal Services - Bakersfield Shelter. She has been at the shelter since June 13, 2024, and is ready for her new home.

Maeki A1204158 is a special girl that has worked her charms on several staff at the shelter, and its not hard to see why. She is a very sweet girl, very gentle taking treats, and just loves people.

Companion Animal Protection Services (CAPS), a national nonprofit based in Thousand Oaks, CA., is partnering with Kern County Animal Services in Bakersfield to find homes for high risk dogs, The shelter has more than 300 dogs and puppies in two metal warehouses with no outdoor runs. Dogs over five-months-old are at high risk for euthanasia because of lack of space and too many abandoned dogs in the community.

Please contact CAPS if you are interested in adopting, rescuing or fostering, and we will make sure the shelter contacts you. They do not answer phones or respond often to voice messages due to understaffing. Foster homes must be in Kern County. The dogs are in Bakersfield, not Thousand Oaks.
*No phone calls, please. If you would like us to call you, please leave your phone number in an email.

CAPS can arrange transportation if you are on the West Coast.
