Maureen Rowe, a New Member of
The Animal Haven Legacy Society
continued from above
Maureen grew up in West Haven, and her family often had dogs and cats. She says that as she matured, she “recognized the responsibility and commitment that one needs to make in order to properly care for an animal. That an animal is more than a pet…they become part of the family.” Her immediate family now includes her fiancé, Vince, and her beloved cat, Annie.
When asked what she would say to others considering becoming Legacy Society members, Maureen says she chose us because we are a local, and, most importantly, a no-kill shelter. She also wanted to donate to a well-established and successful shelter with good rates of rescue and adoption, and The Animal Haven fit the bill. She added, “Just like human beings, I believe animals are worthy and deserving of the basic elements of life and that would include food, water, warmth, protection and most of all love. I hope that my gift to the Legacy Society can provide some of these basic components along with the preservation of their dignity. They are deserving of this and so much more.” We are very grateful to Maureen for her generosity!
