Marcia and her husband Bill share a deep affection for animals. "We cannot imagine life without them," Marcia says. "The care and support of animals (we call them "fuzzy faces") are very important to us and the no-kill concept is at the top of our list when we choose an organization to support."
Marcia was particularly impressed with our puppy mill rescues and our Help Me Heal program, which have helped North Shore Animal League America become a leader in the no-kill movement. When she retired after 26 years as a secretary, she visited the Animal League America campus and was so impressed she decided to apply for volunteer work. After years of volunteering, Marsha hung up her red volunteer shirt, but continues to appreciate Animal League America's ongoing commitment to a no-kill world.
As donors, Marcia and Bill demand a history of success and innovation in their charities of choice — and they agree that Animal League America more than meets that demand. Their love and concern have led Marcia and Bill to name North Shore Animal League America as a beneficiary in their estate plan. "We love our three rescue felines — and we know that our legacy will be put to good use caring for future generations of animals."
