Marin Humane Society is an asset to the community. I adopted a dog from MHS and what a great experience it has been! The staff and volunteers really deserve recognition for all of the love and care they provide to these animals.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

their ability to assist with animals displaced by Hurricane Katrina.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

friendly, helpful, caring and dedicated.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
