Special Needs Animals

MHS frequently has special needs animals available for adoption who are in need of very special homes. Please check back soon!



Animals that are sponsored have had their adoption fee generously paid for by a donor. Sponsorship of an animal is indicated on the animal's profile photo and at the top of the section titled “A Little Bit About Me.” Many adopters have "paid it forward," by paying the adoption fee for another animal that is adopted in the future. For more information about this program please email or call 415.506.6230.

The first 100 adult cats adopted from our satellite adoption center Kitty Corner in San Anselmo have had their adoption fees sponsored by a generous donor. Search the felines available for adoption at Kitty Corner by changing the location in the drop down to Kitty Corner.

Search the database below to see animals available for adoption. Animals that have “Kitty Corner” listed on their profile are located at our Kitty Corner Adoption Center in San Anselmo. All others are at our Novato campus. This database is updated throughout the day. You may also email or call our Adoption Center (closed Mondays) at 415.506.6225 for animals located at our Novato campus or Kitty Corner (closed Mondays and Tuesdays) at 415.747.8322 for animals located at our San Anselmo location. Thank you!
