Staff at small animal shelter blown away after stranger donates $250,000
The New Westminster Animal Shelter in New Westminster, British Columbia, received a very generous donation from a man that had never even visited the establishment.
Vancouverite Daryl Mutz, a former teacher, passed away just over three years ago. In his will, the 83-year-old said he would like $275,000 of his estate donated to the New Westminster Animal Shelter.
Mutz, not having any kids of his own, decided the shelter to be a more than worthy cause.
According to CTV Vancouver, Mutz requested that the shelter use $115,000 for animal enrichment, such as toys, treats and special training sessions. He asked that $55,000 go toward animals needing "excessive" veterinary care and the remaining $55,000 be used to help low-income pet owners with vet bills and a program to neuter feral cats.
"We are totally blown away. A thousand dollars is a big donation for us, so to hear that amount was unbelievable," animal control officer Margie Fox told CTV Vancouver. "We would love to keep a legacy for this gentleman. I think he must have been an amazing man."
From all the cats and dogs at the shelter, we say:
Share the great news!
