Guest Speaker

Peter Marsh


Getting to Zero: A Roadmap for Ending Shelter Overpopulation — Attorney and former NHARL board member Peter Marsh was a founder of “Solutions to Overpopulation of Pets” (STOP), the group that spearheaded the establishment of publicly funded pet-sterilization programs in New Hampshire in the 1990s.

In less than a decade after the programs were established, shelter euthanasia rates dropped by 75 percent. By 2000, New Hampshire had become the first state in the nation to stop putting shelter cats and dogs to death just to make room for more homeless animals.

Using New Hampshire as a model, Peter has helped government agencies, foundations, and nonprofit groups develop humane animal protection programs throughout the United States.
