Review for MARIAN'S DREAM: Philanthrophy for Animal Advocates (Marian Rosenthal Foundation), Brunswick , ME, USA
For years I have know about the incredible work of Marians Dream and Esther Mechler's personal Dream to make a difference thru Spay Neuter. It seems that when people get involved in doing something for animals the walk in the RESCUE door. After more brain cells begin to fire...we all eventually come to the real solution SPAY NEUTER.
Since the late 90s Esther has gently pushed us to take on Marians Dream goal - Spay Neuter. We began working in Mexico 10 years ago fixing pets across the northern Baja, California. In 2010 we started SPAY MEXICO and proceeded to reach out across Mexico to link with like minded vets and community groups to teach and support. Thru Esther's introduction we met Dr. Marvin Mackie the famous "King of Spay/Neuter" and the inventor of Quick Spay. It has been an incredible relationship - as Dr. Mackie has made a personal commitment to present Quick Spay to hundreds of Veterinarians across Mexico.
With the support of Marians Dream we have:
- Over 18,000 surgeries across Mexico
- Over 5,000 in Mexicali 2012
- Over 3,000 surgeries in Mexicali Jan thru July 2013
- Spay/Neuter Conference Puebla, Mexico - Presented Quick Spay 400 attendees
- Mega Spay/Neuter 5 day Training Cancun, 2011
- 5 Low cost clinics established 2013
- 10 new veterinarians trained and certified in the last 10 months
We are a work in progress and with the support and guidance of Esther Mechler and Marians Dream we have been able to learn from each other and share solutions for low cost safe spay neuter. Our proven system is well documented and we believe the ripple effect of our program is now ready to take all across Mexico. We are building a map and reaching out to veterinarians and communities that would like to share our dream.
We go into Mexico because the people there have so little to give to help animals but they give anyway.
If you can help Marians Dream you are helping Spay Mexico do something about the poor starving abandoned pets of Mexico. We are in the streets there making a difference.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
If you are a foundation and would like to support the real solution to pet over-population - I strongly recommend you contact Esther Mechler and discuss supporting Marians Dream. She has been solving this problem with the right people for many years. She founded SPAY USA and became the first at a nationwide program to slow down the pets coming into shelters. She is the core person for advice on how to solve pet over-population and knows most of the core people involved. firstname.lastname@example.org
