Celebrate your special day with Marin Humane!

NEW! Remote Birthday Parties

We are currently not scheduling Fall 2020 birthday parties on campus due to COVID-19 but check out our new remote options:

  • Honk Parade: We’ll be part of your parade and drop off a gift bag for the birthday child in our awesome Marin Humane van decked out with big images of adorable animals. Our amazing volunteers and their dogs will join the parade in their own cars!
  • Virtual Party: We’ll join your virtual party with some special animal friends, lead a fun game for the group, and drop off a special gift bag for the birthday child 72 hours beforehand.


Fee: $50

Any additional donation would be appreciated. Often, in lieu of gifts for themselves, children opt to have gifts or donations given to the shelter animals.

Please submit a request if you’re interested in these options!
