*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

Like so many tortoiseshell kitties, Nikki likes to chat and tell you about her day! She's 5 years old, loves wand toys, and would prefer a mellow household. She's ready to meet you at Kitty Corner! #adoptacat #adoptarescuecat #sheltercat #sheltercatsrule #rescuecatsofinstagram #tortoiseshellcat #tortie

*UPDATE: Adopted!* Handsome little Hans came to the shelter as a stray and no one claimed him. (To which we say, "?!?!?!?!") So now this alert and intelligent Min Pin needs a loving home. Perhaps with you? 💞 #adoptadog #adoptashelterdog #shelterdog #shelterdogsrock #rescuedog #rescuedogsofinstagram #minpin #miniaturepinscher

*UPDATE: Adopted!* Oh Raphie, you sweet boy! Raphie is an endearing and attentive Rottie mix who looooves his toys. Raphie wants to play hard and then nap by your side - sounds pretty nice to us! 💗 #adoptadog #adoptashelterdog #shelterdog #rescuedog #dogsofinstagram #dogstagram #rottweiler #rottiemix

*UPDATE: Adopted!* Google "cutest kitten" and you'll probably get a picture of MacDuff. Seriously, just look at him! On top of the looks, he's fun and friendly and all those fabulous things you'd expect a kitten to be. Come meet him at Kitty Corner! #adoptakitten #kitten #kittenoftheday #kittensofinstagram #adoptdontshop #shelterkitten

Our Novato shelter is open for adoptions again! Bonita is here and ready to meet you. She came to Marin after Hurricane Irma and now she's ready for a disaster-free life, thank you very much! This 5-year-old American Bulldog beauty just wants her forever home. ❤️ #adoptdontshop #adoptadog #adoptashelterdog #shelterdogsrock #shelterdogsofinstagram #dogstagram #adoptashelterdogmonth

During the evacuations, we've been boarding much more than just dogs and cats. We also had finches, rabbits, guinea pigs, turkeys... and these two! Here are Dorothy the tortoise and Dion the Chinese Water Dragon heading home at last now that their neighborhood is safe. 👋 😊

We're so happy to see our emergency board animals going home with their guardians! 😍 We're honored that we could keep them safe. If you need a smile today, check out a few of these happy reunions. 😊

Kitty Corner, our cat adoption center in San Anselmo, is usually closed on Tuesdays - but not tomorrow! We're opening up KC tomorrow, Tues. 10/17, so folks can come adopt our available kitties while our Novato location remains focused on emergency boarding. Nebula, Lucas, Charlie, and Regina would all love to meet you. They'll be waiting at KC, 12-6pm! #adoptdontshop #adoptacat #adoptasheltercat #sheltercat #sheltercatsofinstagram #rescuecat #catsofinstagram

While our Novato location is only housing pets of fire evacuees right now, Kitty Corner, our location in San Anselmo, is still open for adoptions!
Adopting one of these sweet kitties helps us free up even more space in shelters.
The shelter is located on Sir Frances Drake Blvd in the Red Hill Shopping Center and is open all weekend!

Julie, evacuated from her home in Oakmont, got to spend some quality time with her kitty, Apollo, while Kyle, evacuated from Sonoma, visited with his conure, Chewie. Both animals are being boarded here at the shelter, along with more than 380 others.

Guardians are welcome to visit their fur babies during our open hours, which includes the weekend.

Normally a get acquainted room for potential families and felines, our aviary is turning into an actual aviary! All of these birds are the beloved pets of those evacuated from the #northbayfires and are being temporarily housed here. It seems a little cramped, but rest assured that this is temporary. Information - Resources - DONATE at our website. #linkinbio

A few of our officers are in the fire zone helping Sonoma County Animal Services do welfare checks on pets in the affected areas. We're bringing any injured animals to safety and leaving food and water for pets, as needed. Stay safe, Officers Russo, Dalton, and Hayes!

Three cheers and many thanks to our pals at @berkeleyhumane for stepping up helping us out! They took a number of animals off our hands so we could open up even more space to the pets of evacuees. Thank you, Berkeley Humane, for being awesome! 🎉

Holy smokes! This morning we received 1,500 lbs. of pet food FOR FREE from @hillspet ! We are beyond grateful. Thank you, Hills! #napafire #sonomafire #tubbsfire #atlaspeakfire

I think we could all do with a bit of levity today! Here's what Princess thinks of evacuating from Sonoma. She's unimpressed! We're taking solace in sweet moments with the animals in the midst of all the frightening news. Animals are good for the soul! ❤️

We want to remind everyone that we're equipped to take more than just dogs and cats! If you've got a bunny, a fish, a bird, a turtle, etc. - we can provide emergency boarding if you've evacuated to Marin. #sonomafires #napafires #tubbsfire #atlaspeakfire

Thanks to the ever-amazing @petfoodexpress at Hamilton Market for donating a very generous supply of pet food to help us feed a lot of extra hungry mouths! You guys rock! #sonomafire #napafire #CAfire #petfoodexpress #tubbsfire #atlaspeakfire

We just took in more than 100 cats and dogs from @petslifeline when they were forced to evacuate. 😓 But no animal goes without a safe place to land on OUR watch. Our people are working like crazy to make sure all the animals in our care are as comfy as possible. Thank you to everyone who's chipping in to help out! #sonomafire #napafire #CAfires

All hands on deck! We are here and ready to accept animals in need of emergency boarding. Folks headed south to Marin as they flee the fires in Sonoma and Napa Counties can bring their animals to the shelter if they are unable to take them to an evacuation site. We've got your backs! #tubbsfire #napafire #sonomafire

Holy moly, Sensei is a beautiful dog! But Sensei needs an adopter who's looking for more than a pretty face. This 1-year-old Siberian Husky mix was previously an outdoors-only dog and she'll need to adapt to a cushier, indoor lifestyle. The right family with prior dog experience can help Sensei master that transition! #adoptashelterdogmonth #shelterdogsrock #shelterdogsofinstagram #dogstagram #adoptadog #adoptdontshop
