The Ethel Brant Memorial Fund
Ethel Brant was a long time animal lover and beloved grandmother of our own Dr. Kim Trahan, DVM. Ethel was a mother of two as well as guardian of her beloved terrier, Ginger. Later in life, Ethel had several cats as companions and enjoyed visits with family members’ pets. The animals always loved Ethel. She had a kind and gentle way with them. Ethel was also concerned with the plight of stray cats that she would see. She often lamented the “poor kitties that had no homes” and would try to help these animals.
In 2009, it has been estimated that 4 million dogs and cats were euthanized in shelters in this country because there were not enough homes for them. Many unwanted puppies and kittens are born to households with an income of less than $35,000 a year and to animals (especially cats) that have no home. If financial assistance were available to these families, many would get the adult animals spayed or neutered and the number of homeless animals in this country could be reduced. If citizens could have feral cats in their community spayed and neutered at no cost, many would trap and care for these cats.
The Ethel Brant Memorial Fund was established in April 2011. This fund was established to provide financial resources for free or subsidized spay and neuter surgeries to needy families in Southern NH and Northern MA. The fund will also provide free spay and neuter surgeries for stray and feral cats in those areas. Donations to The Ethel Fund are tax deductible and always appreciated.
