Mission Statement

Mission Statement: We Improve the lives of animals and people through advocacy, education, and support. The Marin Humane Society, organized over one hundred years ago, is an award-winning, open-door animal shelter offering refuge and rehabilitation to nearly ten thousand animals each year through a variety of community services including: adoptions, foster care, humane education, lost and found pet services, low-cost spay/neuter services, in-home pet care for low-income seniors, rescue services to overwhelmed sister shelters, and more. The Marin Humane Society does not euthanize animals for lack of space or resources, and every animal offered for adoption receives all the time necessary to find the right, loving home. MHS does not turn away any animal regardless of age or condition.

Program Description:

Low-security inmates at San Quentin State Prison serve as foster parents for shelter dogs who need special attention to recover from surgery or illness, or to modify behaviors so they can become adoptable (such as fear or guarding). The dogs live with the inmates full-time, and the men report the program benefits them as much as the animals.

Program Long-Term Success:

More than 200 dogs have been rehabilitated ("paroled") from the Pen Pals program to find loving adoptive homes.

Program Short-Term Success:

Nearly 50 inmates have participated in the program in eight years, and their testimonials express deep appreciation for both the program, and the companionship of the dogs.

Program Success Monitored by:

Staff and volunteers from the MHS Behavior and Training department visit the prison at least twice a week to coach the inmates and monitor the dogs' progress.

Program Success Examples:

Program Description:

Specially trained volunteers and their dogs work with youngsters struggling to learn to read. When the children read to the non-judgmental dogs, they relax, become less self-conscious, and both their skills and their confidence increase. Their teachers and their families report they look forward to the sessions and, in many cases, become enthusiastic readers.

Program Long-Term Success:

Hundreds of children overcome their fear of reading, removing a significant barrier to their future academic success.

Program Short-Term Success:

These students become more eager learners, and usually become less disruptive

Program Success Monitored by:

Teachers, librarians, and reading specialists

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Additional Information
A Charting Impact Report consists of an organization’s responses to the five questions. Helping validate this self-reported data are three reviews. Once an organization has used the online interface to complete its report, its responses will produce a document with a unique URL that will be shared on this website, on your GuideStar profile, on the reports of charities participating in BBB Wise Giving Alliance evaluations, and – in the future – with other websites and information sources about nonprofits. We encourage organizations to use this URL to share their report on their own website and through their own media channels. Participants will receive guidance about promoting their Charting Impact Report, along with other benefits, once they publish their report.

As with many shelters, they are difficult to rescue dogs from. No shelter is better than a home environment, no matter how fancy. In my dealings with them, they seem a bit stuffy or "better than." Nonprofit Senior Staff
