Mary Doane started Mary’s Dogs Rescue & Adoption in February 2011 out of her passion to save animals and to foster the human/animal bond. She and the rescue were ably supported by her husband John, skillfully managing much of the business requirements. Many dogs and many families and everyone in the Mary’s Dogs organization are forever grateful to Mary for her creative energy, devotion and vision and to John for his organization and support of the Mary's Dogs rescue team. Mary and John enjoy time with their children and grandchildren. Mary continues her work as a nature educator with Project Nature.
