Above & Beyond

We’re inspired by the young animal lovers in our community!

Whether it’s donating the day’s take from a lemonade stand, hand-making toys for shelter kitties, or choosing Marin Humane for their school community service hours, we’re grateful to these young animal advocates and applaud their generosity on behalf of the animals. Take a look at who’s made valuable contributions to Marin Humane.

If you’re a student and would like to do a special project that benefits the shelter animals, you can gather inspiration from the story below or collect items from our Wish List, get crafty and make toys for the shelter animals, or organize a fundraising event (bake sale, car wash, lemonade stand) and donate the proceeds to Marin Humane. Or, in lieu of gifts for your birthday or holiday, ask that donations be made to the animals in your honor!
