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 Moma:
Moma might be one of the sweetest dogs we've had in the shelter in months. We know she's listed as a Cane Corso-German Shepherd, and looks like an Anatolian Shepherd mix (check that nub tail, though!), but she has the demeanor of a Golden Retriever or Labrador. Moma likes anyone who gives her attention and talks to her in baby voice. The moment she hears baby voice, her little nub tail starts wiggling so fast you'd think it's going to fly off her body. Like all dogs in a shelter setting, she's slightly nervous and focused on her environment. But that doesn't stop her from coming up to you and leaning in for pets. We get the feeling that once she's in a home, she'll be snuggle city. Moma appears to be housetrained and previously lived with other dogs.
She does get overexcited when she sees another dog running, so we don't suggest taking her to the dog park or off-leash dog areas, or letting her run off-leash with dogs she doesn't already know. With calm introductions she should be able to make doggie friends.

Get to know Courtney:
Courtney's not sayin' where she's been, but she's happy to be here now. Courtney has settled into shelter life quite nicely, thank you. She's very proud of that. Shelters are not easy places to find yourself, especially if you are a self respecting kitty. But full of pluck and fun, Courtney gamely talks to us and is even a bit adventurous! She jumps down to see visitors almost immediately, wanting to play. Sometimes she jumps in our laps (for a New York minute!).Courtney loves playtime with the mouse wand toy and cheek and chin rubs. But she does not love other cats! She's very clear about that. Courtney wants to be the only kitty in your home, so she can have all her adventures with her humans.

Get to know Venus:
Venus is just coming into her own at the shelter. She was previously paired with her brother (who soaked up the spotlight) and Venus just wasn't brave enough to shine by his side. As a single kitten, she is now starting to appreciate the attention lavished on her by our volunteers and staff. Venus is purry, loves petting and loves to play interactively with the wand toy. Everyday Venus is up in the window of her room and everyday she gets just a little bit braver, a little bit more social and a little bit more ready to take on the world.
Her foster mom has great things to say about Venus and how she has improved in foster: "Venus is a mellow, affectionate, and trainable kitten looking to find a forever home! Venus is a purring machine and will lean into your touch when you pet her, she is very affectionate.. She has a very sweet and mellow temperament. She would do well in a home with kids who would give her lots of attention or with another cat. In her foster home she lived with another cat and they got along well. Unlike some kittens, Venus was not overbearing and gave the other cat his space. This fuzzy tailed feline has demonstrated an unusual aptitude for training in her foster home. Her foster mom has taught her "touch", to bump her forehead into a closed fist in order to receive a treat, and it only took her one day to learn that. She seems like she would also easily learn other tricks if given the opportunity. Venus is a very intelligent and loving kitten who would do well with someone who would be able to challenge her intellectually and give her all the love and affection that she could ever want.
Get to know Labrea:
Labrea is ready to shake things up! This sweet and sassy girl definitely knows what she wants and is not afraid to let you know it. She needs a large area to preside over and to stretch her legs. Labrea also loves food and will chow down on as soon as you put down the plate. And her favorite place to rest is on top of her bunny house so that she can survey her kingdom. Because of her spunky personality, Labrea is probably a bit much for younger children. But in her foster home she has been doing fine with cats and dogs. She's also been great with using her litter box. So if you are ready to rumble and bring home your new boss (ahem, I mean companion), then Labrea might be the bunny for you!
Marin Humane rabbits are companion house rabbits. They live indoors only and cage free- living in a pen or free-roam in the home. This lets them live much longer, happier lives! Indoor rabbits can live 12+ years and require a lot of time and commitment. In return they offer years of love and companionship!
