The Marin Humane Society offers refuge, rehabilitation, and support services to more than 10,000 domestic animals and wildlife each year through a myriad of community services, including adoptions, foster care, behavior and training, humane education, pet assistance for people in need, lost-and-found pet services, low-cost clinics, and more. We are a local, independent organization and are not a chapter or affiliate of any national organization. Your support of the Marin Humane Society directly helps animals in your community.
In addition to our role as non-profit animal shelter, MHS is responsible for upholding county and municipal animal services ordinances through a Joint Powers Agreement contract with the County of Marin. A 2008 Grand Jury Report praised the Marin Humane Society’s dual role as animal services and nonprofit animal shelter. The report concluded that “MHS is an important community asset, and the citizens, pets and wildlife of Marin are better off for it.”
