Life is so much sweeter with an animal in the home. Come meet your new sweetie!

Marin Humane is offering adoptions by appointment. If you’re interested in adopting a specific animal, please contact us by phone or email so we can learn a bit more about you and make sure the animal is a good fit for your family. After that, we’ll work with you to complete the process remotely, including payment for the adoption fee. When you pick up your new family member, we’ll ask you to follow specific safety protocols to minimize your interactions with our staff. Contact us by calling 415.506.6225 or send an email (please always include your phone number).
You may also view pets available for private rehoming.

How to Adopt

Visit our animals. Go for a walk, throw a ball, break out the cat wands. Spend as much time as you need to know if it’s the right fit.

We’re here to answer all your questions – after all, we’ve spent time getting to know each critter with whiskers, wagging tails, and floppy ears. And we’re professional match makers.

We believe that adopting an animal is a family affair, so bring the whole gang! And as we all know, true love can take a little time so there’s no need to rush. You may even want to come back for a second visit to see if it’s right.

We can’t wait to be a part of your happily ever after.

Adoptions at Marin Humane's Kitty CornerWhere to adopt

At our Novato Campus you meet dogs and cats of course, but you can also meet our smallest friends waiting to find their forever homes, like guinea pigs, rabbits, and rats. We even have reptiles and birds!

Kitty Corner is our satellite adoption location dedicated to all things feline. Located in San Anselmo, it’s the tiny but mighty place to meet kittens and cats. We also have special adoption outposts there for dogs on occasion, and even host a monthly “Hoppy Hour” where you can meet adorable bunnies.

But there is more! When the weather permits, we like to take our adoptable critters on the road. We participate in a variety of adoption outposts throughout the county and beyond!

Lives Made Happy

Check out some of the new families recently created through adoption at Marin Humane. We try to snap a pic of each one!

Happy Endings are the stories and selfies sent to us by adopters after their new friend has gone home.

And Featured Adoptions is where we highlight the animals who are a favorite of staff or volunteers.
