Review for MARIAN'S DREAM: Philanthrophy for Animal Advocates (Marian Rosenthal Foundation), Brunswick , ME, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a Board Member of Marian's Dream since 2007, I cannot find praise sufficient for this excellent and visionary organization.

At Marian's Dream, we target pet overpopulation at its source -- unwanted litters. Our main focus is reducing the number of surplus cats. To that end, we support grassroots organizations all over the country, awarding start-up grants for clinics, both mobile and fixed site. We host an annual retreat for the leadership of statewide spay programs, providing a collaborative forum where attendees can share knowledge, problems--and solutions.

Since our founding in 1981, we have been on the forefront of the fight against overpopulation. With programs such as Beat the Heat and the Cats Action Network (CAN), we are working to further stem the tide of unwanted litters by promoting approved protocols for early age spay/neuter (before first heat) as well as elevating the status and well-being of kittens and cats.

Nor is our scope limited to the U.S. In recognition that cat overpopulation is a global issue, we go beyond the borders to Mexico and Panama to support model programs there.

I am proud to be a member of the Marian's Dream board as we work toward our shared goal of No More Homeless Cats.
