Greetings Volunteers, Mahatma Gandhi said, “The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” Treating animals well can take many forms — from rescuing a lost dog to teaching a child to care for the family pet to making one’s voice heard at the ballot box on animal welfare issues. Be Kind to Animals Week began on May 5 and while we believe kindness to animals should happen every day, it does provide an opportunity for us to reflect on our connection to these wonderful creatures with whom we share [...]

Greetings Volunteers, This post gives us another chance to say, Happy Volunteer Appreciation Week! The theme for this year's national Volunteer Recognition Week is “every moment counts.” That sure feels like an appropriate theme for Marin Humane + Hopalong volunteers!

Our volunteers never hesitate to [...]
