We’re officially in pumpkin spice season so you wouldn’t think we’d still be getting itty bitty kittens here at the shelter, but we are! It seems like kitten season isn’t ending any time soon, so if you feel so inclined, we’d love your help stocking up on kitten food from our wish list. The wet food is especially helpful for these young litters and we’re so grateful for our community’s support! Check out our wish list here. Thank you!
Shelter update: We currently have 307 animals in our collective care. 207 are at Marin Humane: 57 animals in foster and 150 animals in the shelter/Kitty Corner, including: 21 dogs, 2 puppies, 57 cats, 42 kittens, 12 rabbits, 6 guinea pigs, 2 reptiles, 6 birds, and 2 fowl. 100 animals are with Hopalong: 16 animals in the Oakland office and 84 cats, kittens, dogs, and puppies are in foster or offsite adoption sites!
Adoptions update: Yeah for another Wednesday adoption slideshow! Congratulations to everyone who adopted a new best friend last week, from pigeons and puppies to kittens and crested geckos! For more details, here’s the Adoption Report.
Hopalong happenings! Whether you’re curious about the foster experience or just need an uplifting story for the middle of your week, we’ve got you covered! Check out this story, recently republished by The Dodo. There’s an adorable video too! It follows the journey of a mama dog and her three puppies, from being found to being fostered all the way up through adoption. It’s a heartwarming story that inspires us and fills us with gratitude for all our amazing foster homes, past and present!
Volunteer High Five to Lee Blackburn and Christina Fisher! “I want to pass along my utmost appreciation to Christina and Lee who volunteered to help during the Ready Sausalito disaster preparedness event on Saturday at MLK Park. It was a pleasure getting to work alongside them and they were absolutely wonderful and engaging with the public. They represented the organization very well and Christina even got a segment on the local news about preparing pets for disasters! My many thanks to both of them for participating in this important event at the last minute!” ~ Conner Cimmiyotti, Animal Services Officer
Have a terrific week!
