Transforming lives through exceptional animal care, humane education, and advocacy. - Novato, CA -
We're out here at the Bay Area Pet Fair with fee-waived adoptions! Help us make room for all the animals who just arrived from Florida by finding your new best bud. You can find us at the Alameda County Fairgrounds until 5pm today, and tomorrow from 10am to 5pm. #bayareapetfair #petfair #adoptdontshop #adoptapet #shelterpets #shelterpetsrock
BREAKING NEWS! In just a few hours, we'll be welcoming dozens of animals from hurricane-ravaged shelters in Florida at Oakland International Airport, thanks to the joint efforts of the ASPCA, the Golden State Warriors, the Miami Heat, and FedEx.
These animals were already awaiting adoption before Hurricane Irma hit, and now they will have a shot at finding their forever homes here on the West Coast, while the Florida shelters focus on reuniting strays from the hurricane with their worried guardians. The animals arriving will be brought here to Marin Humane and to other shelters in the area.
There are two ways you can help these animals right now: adopt or donate! We currently have 278 animals in our care, so now is the time to come adopt our current animals and help us create space for these new arrivals. To sweeten the deal, we'll be waiving the adoption fees for ALL of our animals for an entire week, through September 25!
Financial donations will also help us provide veterinary care, food, and other needs for these new animals who have already been through so much. Help us give these weary travelers a proper Bay Area welcome!

Maisie is just a year old and still very much an adolescent. But she's a smarty-pants and loves her people so with a solid training plan, she'll definitely mature into an ambassador for bully breeds. And she's a beautyyyyyy! Come meet her! #adoptdontshop #adoptadog #adoptashelterdog #shelterdogsrock #shelterdogsofig #dogsofinstagram #dogstagram #pittiemix #pittielove #bullybreeds
*UPDATE: Adopted!* Oscar says, "I'm ready for a home! Someone take me home, please! Pick me, pick me!" Oscar is a 6-month-old (yes, you read that right) Anatolian mix and he is GINORMOUS. He's already almost 85 pounds and he's not done growing. Who wants a gentle giant? This boy is very tolerant and could be great in a family with (sturdy) kids. #anatolianshepherd #anatolianmix #anatoliandog #adoptdontshop #adoptadog #adoptareallyreallybigdog #shelterdog #dogsofinstagram #dogstagram
*UPDATE: Adopted!* Samson and Simba are such lovely boys! These Persian buddies are 9 years old and 7 years old respectively, and they're looking for a home that has room for both of them! It's a lot of fluff, but it'll be worth it. #adoptacat #adopttwocats #sheltercats #catsofinstagram #rescuecats #persiancat #persiancats
*UPDATE: Adopted!* Estrellita is sweet, affectionate, and good with kids. Plus, she's wayyyyy cute! This 5 month old needs a home and we don't think it'll take her long to find one. 😊 #adoptadog #adoptdontshop #adoptashelterdog #shelterdogsrock #rescuedog #shelterdog #rescuedismyfavoritebreed #dogstagram #dogsofinstagram
J.J. Watt is very handsome frizzle mix rooster, and while he may not have donated $20 million to Hurricane Harvey relief like his namesake, he's still very deserving of a comfy, rooster-friendly home! Every barnyard needs a defensive end, right? 😉 #adoptarooster #rooster #roostersofinstagram #roostersofig #frizzle #adoptdontshop #jjwatt

We love this video from @thedodo celebrating the people who are risking their own safety to rescue animals in need during #HurricaneHarvey ! Marin Humane is in communication with rescue organizations on the ground and local shelters, and we're currently on standby. We'll be ready to step up and help provide shelter for animals or send staff if needed! #hurricaneharveyrelief #savetheanimals #heroes

Looks like true love to us! Lulu was just adopted and we think she's settling in quite nicely. 👌👌 If you're a guinea pig fan, don't miss the Bay Area Pignic at our shelter this Saturday! You, too, could find true love. 💞 #BAPignic #guineapig #guineapiglife #guineapigsofinstagram #guineapigsof_ig
