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. If you’re completing your project for community service hours, contact our Humane Education coordinator at 415.506.6288 for more information. You can collect items from our Wish List, coordinate a pet food drive for our Pet Care Assistance program, or organize a fundraising event (bake sale, car wash, lemonade stand) and donate the proceeds to Marin Humane. Another idea is to ask that in lieu of gifts for your birthday or holiday, donations be made to the animals in your honor!


Never too young!

Little Ava came into the shelter carrying a bag of cat food to donate. She just turned two years old, and her parents are teaching her the value of donating to good causes. As you can see, Ava loves kitties and is very gentle when greeting them. The shelter cats thank you, Ava!

Kaitlin and Ella hosted a lemonade stand in Fairfax and earned $64. They decided to split their donation between Kitty Corner and Wildcare. You guys are awesome!

Gabriella had a bake sale to raise money for Marin Humane. The bake sale was also in memory of her cat “Totes.” She is pictured with her dog Ozzie. Thank you, Gabriella!
