Dr. Mike Kleban Memorial Fund

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the death of cherished friend, supporter, and MaaViva Board Director Dr. Michael Kleban.  Dr. Kleban's kindness, honesty, compassion and integrity have been noted and cherished by countless numbers of his family, friends, acquaintances,veterinary clients and patients. Dr. Kleban had the refined sensitivity to appreciate the subtleties of plants, animals, nature, and the interconnections that shape our world.  Dr. Kleban was a devoted, attentive and wise father to his own children which he extended to an affinity and caring empathy for all children.  


While we at MaaViva are devastated by Dr. Kleban's passing we feel it our duty, honor and privilege, together with his family and friends, to manifest some of the strivings, impulses and qualities of this special man ... so that they may live on.  

 We are launching our new program:

Dr. Mike Kleban Memorial Fund - Planting Hope

All funds will go towards programming to involve children in planting trees, native plants, and food crops; to teach them of the beauty and abundance of wildlife and the natural world around them while giving them the knowledge to improve their lives and live in harmony with it. 

A portion of all funds raised will go to the Maricopa County Animal Care and Control.  If you would like your donation to go directly to this cause please state this in the comments section or donate directly here:  http://www.maricopa.gov/281/Donate.
