A small animal shelter in British Columbia, Vancouver recieved a very generous donation from a guy that had never even visited the animal shelter.
When 83 year old Daryl Mutz
passed away, his will stated that he wanted $275,000 of his estate donated to the New Westminster Animal Shelter
Staff were absolutely flabbagasted at the huge donation.
Mutz requested a portion of the money, $55,000, be used to help animals that come in needing "excessive" veterinary care, including things like treating broken bones and pricey dental surgeries.
There is also a $115,000 animal enrichment fund set aside for things like toys and treats, special behavioural training sessions and dog agility equipment – to exercise dogs' minds, as well as their bodies, and gain confidence.
"We would love to keep a legacy for this gentleman. I think he must have been an amazing man," said Fox, adding that the funds will be used over at least five years.
