Impact and Outcomes

We see positive outcomes every day at Marin Humane and it’s philanthropic support that makes it all possible. These stories are just some examples of how donors like you make a lifesaving impact.

A Perfect Match for Mercury

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 he was at Marin Humane, we discovered that Roadrunner enjoyed all sorts of toys, and our staff and volunteers noticed he loved pets. He also received a medical exam, vaccinations, and was neutered. While we were getting to [...]

Happily Ever After – Thanks to Donor Support

Often, senior animals have a harder time finding new homes compared to their younger counterparts. Thanks to the generous support of our donors, Marin Humane is able to provide all animals who come through our doors with the time and care they need until they're adopted by a loving family. Monique is just one example of an older dog who needed to stay in our care for an extended period of time. At 9-years-old, Monique was surrendered to Marin Humane in [...]
