MORE ABOUT ZACH SKOW:
Zach Skow was born and raised in Hermosa Beach, California. As a kid, he aspired to become a fighter pilot, but later found his passion in providing second chances for pets and people. He began working in local animal welfare in 2004, developing the first large-dog foster program, which he headed, as well as an education and therapy dog program called Miracle Mutts.
In 2008, Zach was diagnosed with stage 4 acute alcoholic cirrhosis of the liver and given less than 90 days to live. He was admitted to the Comprehensive Transplant Center at Cedars Sinai, where he is still a patient.
It is out of this desperate situation that Marley’s Mutts dog rescue was born. Zach found a way to save his own life by saving the lives of others, a Philosophy of Service that Marley’s Mutts has adhered to since its founding. Marley’s Mutts was honored in Sacramento as the best nonprofit of the year for the district of California in 2019.
Marley’s Mutts has rescued over 6,000 dogs, cats, horses, and pigs in the last 11 years and has created numerous progressive programs, including Barks and Books, Miracle Mutts, and Pawsitive Change — an inmate/canine rehabilitation program that is spreading throughout the California penal system and the world.
Zach married the woman of his dreams, Heather Skow, and they have a 19-month-old daughter together, as well as 5 dogs, 1 cat, a pig, and three horses.
