Nancy & Georgia
Older kitty finds loving home with loving & worthy guardian on Friday the 13th.
Nancy Carroll recently lost the second of two calico sister kitties she'd had since they were kittens. With a bit of prodding by daughter in law Kathleen and daughter Susan, Nancy finally visited the Marin Humane Society on Friday the 13th of December
It was during the visit this little 1 1/2 year old DSH kitty named Georgia made herself known. It was about to become her lucky day. She was so new, there was no biographical info posted on the enclosure. However, this did not stop this little gray ball of fur from introducing herself and making herself known. As they say, it was love at first sight & a few hours later Georgia had a new forever home.
We had heard a number of very positive comments regarding MHS and the care and effort that was given in placing adoptive dogs with appropriate parents. Which prompted us to eagerly contact MHS to assist us with finding an adoptive dog even tho we live over 100 miles away. Since "adopting" Brandi, we have been very happy with the smooth adjustment our puppy has made in coming to our home. The early care and attention that MHS provided to Brandi helped with her transition to a new home. We could not have a more wonderful dog. We love her dearly. Thank you Ruthie and MHS.
San Rafael's Finest: Angelo the Three Legged American Eskimo
One beautiful October afternoon, we swung by the Marin Humane Society and stopped dead in our tracks when we saw the most adorable American Eskimo. We were so mesmerized by his big bushy white tale and black eyes, that we didn't even realize he only had three legs! After one walk around the grounds, we knew we had to invite Angelo into our lives!
Our Little Marzipan
He has adapted extremely well to our young, active lifestyle with tons of hikes, cuddling, and treats! His sweet demeanor always makes us drop everything we're doing to give him a pat. He enjoys long sprints on the beach, lazy afternoons on the couch, tennis balls, and peanut butter filled kongs.
We are very thankful to MHS for funding a successful surgery, which many shelters would not have undertaken. We'd also like to thank the individual staff members who personally rehabilitated him to get him to his finest!
When we saw Marzipan in one of the kitty rooms at MHS, we knew right away that she was the one for us. She has been a part of our family for a year and a half now and we couldn't be happier. She is friendly towards everyone that walks through our door and cuddles up on their laps instantly. She enjoys playing with ping pong balls and running laps around the house. She likes to lay on our keyboards and chase the mouse on the computer screen. She can always find the perfect sun spot and lays in them for hours.
Sammy Cat's Anniversary
We recommend MHS to anyone that is looking to adopt a pet. We had a great experience during the adoption process and are blessed to have Marzipan in our lives. Thank you for bringing us together!
Dear Friends at the Marin Humane Society. Hard to believe but it was exactly six years ago today that I walked into the shelter and found true luv! I could say I adopted Sammy but it was he who chose me.
Sammy loves tummy rubs, back rubs, being brushed out, treat time, and will always pose for the camera. We both feel really lucky to have found each other. Sammy keeps me company at the computer and while watching tv. He will come to bed with me snuggling close and purring me to sleep.
Sammy is the first cat that I have had the longest and I hope the relationship will continue. In honor of our anniversary, he got a new toy and some cat nip. I love my Sammy and he loves his human, Linda.
Grateful to have found Walter
Hi, My name is Taylor and I adopted a little black puppy whose name was Raymond and is now Walter. I just want to say a huge thank you to everyone that works there. I was coming probably once every week or two looking for the puppy or dog that I knew was right for me and every person in your business was so kind and gracious. Now having Walter for almost two months he is such a little joy, and has completed our little family. I feel so grateful to have found him and have adopted him from you! A little update on Walter. He is 4 months old and was 8 pounds when I brought him home and is now 18 pounds and growing. He is fully potty trained after 2 days of bringing home! He is losing his puppy teeth and has about every toy the dog store has to offer. He is the most well behaved puppy ever he listens and loves learning new things for his treats. He sleeps in our bed above our heads and loves to snuggle. He is a healthy growing little nugget who has brought so much happiness and love to us. Thank you for everything you all do for everyone. I hope to one day see you all again.
Elvis being a good companion to Luigi
- Luigi and his new companion Elvis just hanging out and exploring
We adopted Elvis, the pigeon formerly known as Fancy Pants, to be a companion to our white fantail pigeon Luigi, who had lost his mate not too long ago. Elvis, the salt & pepper West of England Tumbler pigeon on the right hand side of the picture, is such a joy. He is extremely friendly and sweet. We are so fortunate that we found him at the Marin Humane Society because he is such a welcome addition to our flock!
Mischievous Mori & Sleepy Simon
He was Nick when we adopted him but he is Mori to us. He loves to play fetch and he loves Simon. We are so lucky to have him in our family!
Thank you Marin Humane Society.
It was just over 4 years ago when our daughter brought "Mr. Soul" home to be part of our family. He was anxious, very timid, and fearful. Over the these last years he has brought so much joy and happiness to our family. He has hiked the mountains of Lake Tahoe, loves the beach, running at the park, and chilling with his bully stick.
Our sweet baby girl
He is a playful and loving dog who has blessed our family.
We met Stella (formerly Ginger) three months after we lost our last love, Stinson. We took her for a walk around the MHS grounds and finally sat down on the sidewalk. As we were discussing whether we were ready for another dog, Stella climbed into my partner's lap, curled up and fell asleep. We both shed a couple tears, smiled at each other and knew Stella belonged with us.
We can't thank you enough for bringing this girl into our lives. Stella has brought us nothing but joy and love and we feel honored to have her as part of our family.
