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!

Pet Food Drive

Categories: Compassion In Action
To earn community service hours and help Marin Humane, Cole arranged a pet food drive in his neighborhood. He designed, printed, and handed out 100 flyers advertising his weekend food drive event. He picked up all the food and bought even more food with any money that was donated. Thank you, Cole – great idea!

Alizée made these amazing houses for our adoption cats! She made them at home for her cats and thought we would like some as well. One has already gone home with a family and their new kittens! These are just so much fun – thank you, Alizée!

Who doesn’t like donuts??

This awesome Santa Rosa Junior Hockey League Player stopped by the shelter to share DONUTS with our staff and volunteers! We were all appreciative of the extra sugar boost – it gave us even more energy to help care for the shelter animals. What an unexpected treat – thank you!
