Get Involved

Did you know Marin Humane helps more than 10,000 animals a year and countless humans, too? Here are a few ways you can help!

Community Engagement

From kids to seniors, over the last 30 years, thousands of people in Marin have been touched by Community Engagement. This program consists of many diverse initiatives that strengthen the bond between people and animals and provide healing to those who need it most.

Join our amazing team of volunteers and make lives better for the animals and people of Marin.

Over 700 animal lovers and advocates give quality love and care to all the critters here. If you like walking dogs, socializing kitties, pitching in at events, finding fur-ever homes, or keeping kennels tidy, then we have animals that need your help and would love to meet you.

Become a part of our devoted family and feel good about giving animals the life we all know they deserve.

Youth Programs

Humane Education is much more than learning about pet care or preventing neglect or abuse. Our activities engage children by raising their compassionate awareness of – and respect for – both animals and people. We empower them to make their own humane choices. This creates a healthier community, a more mindful nation, and a kinder world.
