Party like an animal when you hold your birthday party at Marin Humane! Humane birthday parties are two-hour events held in the education classroom of our Novato campus on Saturdays and include lots of fun stuff:

  • Your choice of cat, dog, or small companion animal party theme
  • A one-hour program that includes an animal-themed game, craft activity, animal visit, and tour of the shelter
  • Use of the educational classroom for a one-hour birthday party immediately following the program
  • Eco-friendly party supplies and decorations
  • Treat bags for each child with a special gift for the birthday child
  • The birthday child gets to name a new adoption animal (choose a dog, cat, or small companion animal)!

Party Times

Saturdays: 10:30 am to 12:30 pm or 2 to 4 pm
Fee: $200

Humane Birthday Parties are for children turning six years or older, please.
Our facilities allow us to accommodate a total of 12 children.

Because space is tight during summer camp (June through August), we’re not able to host birthday parties during that time. 

Submit a birthday party request online or call 415.506.6288.
