These pets are available to adopt at Marin Humane, along with a ton of other amazing pets who deserve a great forever home!
Get to know Orion:
Super handsome and very soft Orion with his rex fur was found in a park in San Anselmo. Was he dumped there? Did he dig out of a yard? We'll never know but fortunately, someone found him before he could be injured or worse. We knew he would love a break from the hustle and bustle of the shelter so off to a foster home he went. His foster "mom" tells us this about him:
Orion is so much fun! He favorite chew items are toilet paper rolls and wicker toys. He'll sometimes flip a toilet paper roll into the air which is beyond cute! He comes up for petting and loves his forehead stroked. Like a lot of rabbits, Orion won't walk on hardwood floors so it's been easy to contain him without an x-pen. I put down carpets and towels in the bathroom, part of the hall and part of a bedroom. He uses all of that area to hop, do zoomies, and bunny binky's! He puts his front paws on my lap to say Hi when I sit on the floor but hasn't hopped on to my lap..yet. And, of course, true to rabbits he doesn't enjoy being picked up and held. He feels so much safer and calmer with "four on the floor".
We think Orion would be fine for any family. He's sweet, confident, and did we mention..handsome?
Get to know Shelly:
Shelly is soooo cute and just loves her unicorn hidey bed (which her adopter will get). Originally she came to us from another shelter that had too many (that was about a year ago). Then she got adopted but is now back here because the family didn't have time for her. We have found her to be very sweet and easy to pick-up. Of course she's a bit scared when you reach in to pet her but that's normal for guinea pigs. Our hands look pretty big to them! So give her a moment to settle down then gently pick her up, place her on your lap for petting and get ready to become "Zen". Older children that will go nice and slow with her would be best. Shelly is sure to delight her next, and hopefully, forever family!
Get to know Blake:
Blake was recently surrendered to Marin Humane. He didn't get much socialization as a young dog, so we're working on showing him that the world is not as scary as he thinks it is. Blake is one of those dogs who still thinks he's a tiny puppy. When something spooks him, he either startles and cowers or runs to one of his favorite humans for safety. He's come a long way since he's been with us. But as we all know, the shelter is no place for a sensitive dog. Blake was extremely timid at first, and was more comfortable around men than women. Now that he has a few friends, he's starting to trust more people. Blake also LOVES other dogs. He was gentle with dogs of all sizes in a playgroup at the shelter. It's so cute to watch him run and play! He throws his arms around and bounces all over the place. Blake continues to come out of his shell, he has started showing us his exuberant, adolescent side and we've experienced some happy jumping. Blake seems to be housetrained, but his previous home seriously limited his freedom in the home, so be prepared for a period of adjustment when you bring him home. Blake has some training and is learning touch, sit and down. Make sure to sign up for Family Dog 1 or Bully Breed Basics to help Blake learn more skills to help him cope in the world.
Get to know Sam:
Sam is active, smart, curious, affectionate and a bit of a scamp when he is bored and wants attention. He is into interactive feather wand toys and loves to be petted. If he can do both at the same time--all the better! Wanting to know what's going at all times, Sam will like nothing better than a tall cat tree or the highest bookcase to survey his domain. That way, when something interesting happens, he can get right in the middle of things!
This total love muffin really prefers a quiet home where he can explore and engage often with his new family. Sam may start out shy at first, but really all he wants is you to be the center of his world. He will look to you for lots of playtime, petting and affection. Keeping Sam active during the day,giving him another play session and meal just before bedtime, will keep him cuddling with you all night.
