Get Involved

When you contribute to Marin Humane, you do more than you think.

Whether we’re reuniting lost pets with their worried families, adopting homeless critters into new, loving homes, or giving sick or injured animals a second chance—your contribution is what makes it all possible. Your generosity also brings the joy of animals to seniors and the homebound through animal-assisted therapy, teaches young people about the responsibilities and rewards of having companion animals, promotes coexistence with wildlife, and so much more.Donate Now
