EMRO's Goals and Vision
EMRO's goals are to help save the endangered native Mau and rehome as many of the cats as can feasibly be done, both locally and internationally. We also provide outreach for these animals through means of education and brochures in an attempt to raise awareness for these underappreciated, abused and neglected ancient animals.
The Mau is a very intelligent, noble, and ancient cat, and it is EMRO's hope to help raise awareness of its plight and to help preserve the species for future generations.
We have also discovered a sub-species of Maus, the long-haired Mau or Shirazi Mau, which is also indigenous in Egypt. It is a wonderful mix of Persian calmness and Mau intelligence.
The Mau is native throughout Africa and SE/Asia and, depending upon the location, a variation of Mau exists. EMRO also works to help save and promote the Mau wherever it exists, whether currently in the Philippines, and previously in Saudi Arabia (KSA).
EMRO is not funded by any government agency or charitable group, solely depending upon donations (previously from the Founders), sponsorships, money from adoptions, and income from the low-cost veterinarian clinic to the public (i.e. vet services and pet shop supplies).
