Learn about Marin Humane at the ground level with a shelter tour!


A tour of Marin Humane gives students a first-hand look at compassion in action! They’ll learn about the animals and the time and resources needed to care for them.

Submit a request to schedule a tour.

At our Novato campus, students will learn all about the work of Marin Humane. They’ll meet animals up close and see our staff and volunteers working to help care for them during their stay. Tours last 60 minutes with an introduction to the wide variety of programs first.

As a non-profit, we don’t charge the public for our programs. Many groups like to collect items from our Wish List or work on a fundraiser before their visit. A donation is a great way to give back to the animals while you’re here. The suggested donation (not required) is $20 per class.

We also provide tours for:

  • Students who have performed an approved independent community service project or school report
  • Adult groups
  • Scouts
  • Family organizations
