Meet Our Donors
A native of Denmark, 83-yearold Annegrethe Kisling attributes her deep love of animals to her grandmother, Dagmar Poulsen, a cat lover and officer responsible for investigating animal abuse for the Dyrevaernet, Denmark's leading Humane Society.
Marin Humane's dedication to finding good homes for animals has inspired donors Don and Barbara Tornberg for more than 25 years. Don and Barbara, both longtime Marin County residents, believe that all animals are important and recently increased their commitment to Marin's animals by including Marin Humane in their estate plan.

Marin Humane's work is so important. The animals that come under its care receive a second chance on life, and the ones we've adopted have brought so much joy and happiness to our family. We're also proud to support the programs that Marin Humane offers to the people and animals in our community. Whether it's dog training classes, summer camp for kids, senior services, and so much more — no one does more for animals in Marin. In writing our wills, we included Marin Humane to ensure that these programs will continue for many years to come.
Greg Hatch: Volunteer and Legacy Society member
Before I became a volunteer in the adoptions department in 2012, I didn't fully appreciate all that Marin Humane does for animals and people. Whether it's support for low income seniors, providing veterinary care to thousands of animals every year, low cost spay and neuter, or humane education, there is so much offered here that impacts so many lives. To ensure all animals that come here can get the help they need, and to make sure that the organization will be there for every animal in the future, we designated Marin Humane as a beneficiary of our IRA account.

Little did Gayle know that this friend's brother, Thomas, would become her husband and bring her back to the Bay Area.
