Shelter Tours

A tour of the Marin Humane Society gives students a first-hand look at compassion in action! They will learn about the needs of animals and the enormous amount of time and resources that are required to meet those needs.

Submit a request to schedule a tour.

At the shelter, children will learn all about the work of the Marin Humane Society and take a walk around the campus. They will meet animals up close and see our staff and volunteers working to help animals and our community. Tours last 60 minutes; an introduction to the wide variety of MHS programs is presented prior to the tour.

As a non-profit, MHS does not charge the public for our programs. Many groups collect items from our Wish List or work on a fundraiser prior to coming for a program. A donation is a great way to give back to the animals while you are here. Suggested donation (not required) is $20 per class.

We also provide tours for:

  • Students who have performed an approved independent community service project or school report
  • Adult groups
  • Specially designed tours for scouts
  • Family organizations
