Are ewe missing a sheep? It's not often that we use our barn for actual livestock, but right now we have this woolly gal. She was found near the intersection of Wood Hollow Drive and Woodgate Place here in Novato. She has a full tail and an orange ear tag. If this is your sheep or you know the guardian, please call 415-883-4621. Thank ewe!

We can't even express just how excited we are for the 4th Annual Animal Film Festival on Tour, coming up on Saturday the 27th - and for this film in particular! "Love, Unleashed" explores that special bond we form with senior dogs and hoo boy, we just know it's gonna hit us right in the feels. Don't miss this super-cool event right here on our Novato campus! Head to our homepage (link in bio) to get your tickets. #animalfilmfestival #loveunleashed #seniordogsrock

*UPDATE: Adopted!* Kimchi is an elegant lady who prefers to go slowly when meeting new people. Because she's less forward than some of the other felines at Kitty Corner, she's often overlooked. 😿 But she is a beauty who just takes some time to warm up and likes attention on her own terms! Come meet her this weekend at Kitty Corner in the Red Hill Shopping Center in San Anselmo. #adoptacat #blackcat #sheltercat #rescuecat #adoptasheltercat #sheltercatsofinstagram #catsofinstagram #adoptdontshop

127% more powerful than kryptonite, a pittie smile is guaranteed to suck you in and render you effectively powerless - but in the BEST way. Athena's smile is pure magic, as are her lil' nose freckles. Come meet this gorgeous lady at the shelter this weekend! She's 3 years old, loves people, doesn't exactly love other dogs, and is a big fan of toys and tennis balls. #adoptashelterdog #adoptapit #pitbull #pitbullsofinstagram #shelterdogsofinstagram #rescuedismyfavoritebreed

What a year! It was packed with heart-warming adoptions, incredible rescues, disaster response efforts, inspiring staff and volunteers, generous donations, and, of course, lots of animals. Thank you for joining us for the journey. #bestnine2017

2 guinea pigs > 1 guinea pig! It's a scientific fact and Silky and Nugget are proof. Pay these piggy buddies a visit! They need to be adopted together, because science. 😏 #adoptaguineapig #guineapig #guineapigs #guineapigsofinstagram #guineapigsofig #shelterguineapigs #adoptdontshop

Fee-waived adoptions at Marin Humane start now through Dec 31, and beautiful Bianca already found a home today. Adopt your new best friend at our Novato Shelter and at Kitty Corner. All pets qualify!
Thanks to our friends at ASPCA and Marin Subaru for making this possible.

Welcome to Northern California, Ventura County dogs!
We just welcomed 15 adoption doggies who were flown up from Ventura County Animal Services to create much-needed space at that shelter in the wake of the devastating fires. These dogs were already waiting for their forever homes when the fires broke out and thanks to Wings of Rescue and The Humane Society of the United States they've found their way to Marin!
The volunteer pilot is now en route back to Ventura where he'll pick up kitties, bunnies, and guinea pigs to bring back up here. We'll be welcoming those critters with open arms later! #rescue #ventura #dogs #cats #rabbits #guineapig

Can you help us out? Our Pet Care Assistance program's elves have been nice and busy delivering bags of holiday surprises to low-income pet guardians around Marin! But now our supplies need replenishing. We're in need of small bags of dry dog and cat food and cans of wet dog and cat food. Donations can be brought to either our Novato shelter or Kitty Corner in San Anselmo! We'd be ever so grateful!

*UPDATE: Adopted!* We find Bruce's underbite supremely charming! This 2-year-old Lab/Rottie mix is a big hunka love who would be good with sturdy kids (he can be rambunctious!). Come meet him! #adoptadog #adoptashelterdog #shelterdog #shelterdogs #shelterdogsofinstagram #rescuedismyfavoritebreed #adoptdontshop #labmix #rottweilermix

*UPDATE: Adopted!* Moanaaa...make wayyy, make wayyy! 🎶🎶 This Moana is not quite as fond of water as her namesake but she's just as confident and spirited. She's social, loves people, and is ready to play - basically the perfect kitten. And she's ready to go! #kitten #kittensofinstagram #kittensofig #shelterkitten #adoptakitten #adoptdontshop

*UPDATE: All the pups were adopted!* These squishy beans came to Marin Humane back in October when their guardians lost their home to the horrible fires in Sonoma County. In fact, these babies were born while their family was evacuated! They're much bigger now at 8 weeks and they'll be making their big debut soon. Today they're headed to @braytonlaw for a #PauseForPaws event and we'll be posting some video on our FB, so don't miss it! #puppies #adoptapuppy #puppiesofinstagram #shelterpuppies #dailypuppy

*UPDATE: Adopted!* Cutie pie Georgia is looking for a dog-savvy family that will keep her close most of the time - this American Bulldog mix is not a fan of being left alone. But why would you ever want to be apart from something this cute?? 😉#adoptdontshop #adoptadog #adoptashelterdog #shelterdog #shelterdogsrock #shelterdogsofinstagram #dogsofinstagram #dogstagram #americanbulldog #americanbulldogmix

*UPDATE: Adopted!* Ribbon has been waiting for a forever home for 195 days! 😿 And she's such a wonderful rabbit. In her foster home, Ribbon got along with the resident cat and even consistently used a litter box. She's friendly, outgoing, and look at that adorable nose! Can you give her a forever home? #adoptarabbit #adoptabunny #rescuerabbit #rabbitsofinstagram #rabbitstagram #bunniesofinstagram #bunnylove
