When Animals are Protected, Society Benefits
To better accommodate statewide membership, many of the monthly meetings are held as conference calls the third Tuesday every month at 7:00 pm. If you believe that all of society should pay for that protection, consider donating or becoming a member.
We Care About the Big Picture
Responsible dog owners and the dog clubs in Maine are a valuable resource with much experience in the care of animals.
All of society benefits when animals are given better protection. And, all of society, not just responsible dog owners, should help pay for that protection.More About FMDC
