Above & Beyond

Prevent a litter, fix a critter!

For more than 45 years, Marin Humane has offered spay/neuter surgeries to the public; first on a low-cost basis and then exclusively for those with low income. But with a tiny clinic and only two veterinarians, it was often hard to meet the demand in addition to providing medical care to our shelter animals. So, we’re excited to announce that Marin residents in need can now get these surgeries for their beloved pets at 20 different veterinary hospitals throughout the region!

Eligible pet parents can get pre-approved through our Pet Safety Net program.
