Despite all the bad things that are going on in the world today, there is still hope for humanity and it started at the New Westminster Animal Shelter in New Westminster, British Columbia. The organization has recently received a large donation from a person that had never even been to the place.
A former teach from Vancouver named Daryl Mutz had passed away more than three years ago. Before he died, Mutz signed a document saying that he would like to give $275,000 of his assets to the animal shelter.
The kind-hearted man had always thought of giving away his estate for a cause since he did not have any children of his own.
Mutz has already broken down the whole money into different amount – $115,000 for animal enrichment like treats, toys, and expenses for training sessions. According to a report by CTV Vancouver, he also donated $55,000 for veterinary care of all animals in the shelter and another $55,000 for pet owners who are having problems paying off vet bills. Some of the remaining cash will be used for 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.”
“Happy Birthday, Grayson! This generous little dude donated $80 from his 6th birthday party! Kittens Ferris & Bueller say thank you meowy much!”
