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 Kozmo:
Do you need someone to keep you company when you work from home? Kozmo might be your guy. His favorite thing is the whole world is snuggling. On the days you need to go into the office, he's perfectly happy to spend the day napping in a sunny spot. Even better if he has couch privileges! All he needs is a morning walk or jog first. Kozmo is such an easy-going guy, we can see him fitting in most homes. He's met young, active kids, and they can be a bit too much for him. Tiny humans running around and making noise is freaky when you're a dog. He'd do best in a home with older, mellow kids.
Kozmo is more interested in people than in dogs, who he tends to ignore once he's gotten a look at them. He's not a fan of pushy dogs and would prefer his canine companions be respectful, like him. One thing that brightens Kozmo's day considerably is food. Kozmo has also showed us that he loves to train and is a fast, fun learner! Once Kozmo has gotten settled in his new routine, sign him up for Family Dog 1 and watch your relationship with this sweetheart blossom!

Get to know Kaldra:
The results are in! Our resident Husky mixes turned out to have some Gray Wolf DNA. Specifically, Kaldra is 32% Husky, 27% German Shepherd, 25% Alaskan Malamute, 9.1% Gray Wolf and 5.4% Collie. We actually feel like we've seen a little bit of all of these breeds in Kaldra while she has been under our care. We are looking for homes with experience with northern breeds and some experience with a previous Wolf Hybrid would be great. Kaldra takes time to warm up to people, here at the shelter she has learned to be OK around a lot of people, she is even getting affectionate with many of us. Patience and a tall fence are both requirements in her new home. Kaldra is not a dog that can be left out in your yard, she will likely use that Wolf brain to find a way out and find some mischief. We've seen Kaldra be dog social, though small dogs and small companion animals are not recommended in her new home, she has prey drive that is typical with all of her breeds. We've heard her howling in the evenings, so joy for dog song is another requirement in her new home. Long hikes, always on leash, will be great for Kaldra to exercise her nose, muscles and learn about the world. Here at the shelter Kaldra was a star in our scenting classes. You should check our website and sign up for a Nosework Introduction class.
Get to know Vinnie:
Vinnie is about as cute and friendly as they come. He's a charming fellow, chatting away about everything, making biscuits and has the cutest face and kinky tail. He loves to play with coil springs, and asks for petting and head scratches and will gladly jump in your lap. He came in as a stray, but he knows no strangers! Vinnie will do best in a home that has previous cat experience, but no cats at home. He can be mouthy, but is so much fun!
Get to know Pickle & Whomp:
Pickle and his hairless buddy Whomp are two sweet piggies looking for their forever home. Hairless guineas are called "Skinny Pigs" and need a bit more specialized care than coated cavies- namely more frequent cleaning (they eat more to stay warm and thus go to the bathroom more) and also need soft, covered hiding places to keep warm. Make sure their enclosure is in an room that does not get too cold and that isn't drafty. Otherwise they are the same as their furry counterparts, needing lots of space to exercise, unlimited fresh grass hay, plain guinea pig pellets (no colored muesli mixes) and fresh greens like Italian parsley and cilantro. And of course clean water to drink at all times. Pickle and Whomp would love to be a part of your family, come meet them today!
Tune into Marcus & Corey every Friday to meet more animals that could be your family's next pet, sponsored by Stevens Creek Toyota!
