Marin Humane Society dogs move to renovated adoption center – Marin Independent Journal

Kiss, a 3-year-old terrier mix with an under-bite and brown spots, was more than content Friday about his move to the Marin Humane Society’s new dog adoption center.

The frisky pooch stood on his hind legs in a new 7- by 7-and-a-half-foot dog room and swiveled his hips in apparent delight at the approximately $700,000 renovation that transformed his digs.

Kiss was among some 30 adoptable dogs that Humane Society employees moved Friday morning from a temporary holding room with fencing and gray floors to the sparkling new center, which features improved acoustics that minimize barking, soothing music, skylights and sound-absorbing panels, among numerous other amenities.

“They seem to be content — they seem to be very happy in here,” said Animal Care Director Tricia Breen as she surveyed the room of frolicking canines. “It will enhance their stay here. Their stress level will drop.”
