Recently, Marin resident Janet Weiner, her family, and the Rockstar Energy Drink Company came forward to fund a very special need at Marin Humane.

In addition to providing spay/neuter surgeries for the pets of low income residents in Marin and our shelter animals, our veterinary clinic cares for all our shelter animals’ medical needs. From running tests, administering medications, post-surgery monitoring, and other important functions, this small group is pushed to its limits. We desperately needed the help of two full-time veterinary assistant positions and Rockstar stepped up to the plate!

We approached Rockstar because they’ve supported special projects and unique needs at Marin Humane in the past. Without hesitation, Janet Weiner, Rockstar CFO, agreed to help and we now have two additional full-time veterinary assistants on staff – right in time for the busy summer season.

“Having these two additional veterinary assistants has been a huge boost to our ability to care for every animal who comes through our doors,” says Director of Veterinary Medicine Dr. Belinda Evans.

We’re always grateful for any type of support our community provides us – whether through individual donations or corporate sponsorships – but supporters like Rockstar who help us provide higher levels of care through unique contributions is especially appreciated.

If you’re interested in special opportunities to support the animals, please contact our director of development, Joe Lisella and or 415.506.6257.
