MARIE DEAN HORSE PROTECTION INITIATIVES CANADA

Anyone who met or knew Marie Dean was touched by her fervent love of horses and the desire to protect them. She stood out as a true horse lover and defender. Her tenacity in her dedication to our horses was felt by all who knew her.

Marie’s life ended tragically in April 2015 when she succumbed to complications due to cancer.

In her honour, Marie Dean Horse Protection Initiatives Canada has been created to enable her dream to help horses become a reality.

It would please her so much to know that others share in her dream and are contributing to make it a reality. If you would like to have your in memoriam or in honour donation shared on our blog, please send us an email with your information at info@mdhpic.org

Canadian singer, song writer and recording artist Cat Thomson has graciously allowed us to link her hauntingly beautiful song ‘Away’ in honour of Marie.

Born in Calgary, Cat is a classically trained musician currently residing in Vancouver.  

You can learn more about Cat by going to her web page http://www.catthomsonmusic.com/

Cat will be releasing her new album the summer of 2017.  

Her music is available for download on iTunes or through her web site as well.

Thank you, Cat for your generosity!

MDHPIC cannot continue to help  rescued horses without donations.

We are a registered (800813545RR0001) charitable organization and can provide tax receipts – please consider making a donation  to help us continue this valuable work.
