Stewie was brought to Marin Humane with his four tiny siblings and mom after they were found stray in Novato. Our clinic evaluated the feline family and treated little Stewie for diarrhea, and they were all sent to the home of one of our dedicated foster volunteers. While in foster, Stewie and his family were socialized and given lots of love and affection.

Access to New Medicine Saves Sick Puppies

These sweet boxer puppies were abandoned at a ranch and brought to Marin Humane along with their brother. [...]
