The Regina Humane Society has been able to provide the cats at the shelter with a healthier and happier stay thanks to the generosity of an amazing woman, Sylvia Aumuller and the significant donation she left to the animals through her estate.
Ordered in the fall of 2013, the RHS was able to purchase 43 custom made stainless steel cat kennels from Suburban Surgical. These kennels offer our cats increased space including private sleeping and bathroom areas. In addition they provide for easier cleaning and greatly reduce the spread of illnesses between cats at the shelter. Costing over $160,000, the purchase of these new kennels, which can be transported and used in our new proposed Animal Care Centre, would not have been possible without the generous gift Sylvia left to the RHS in her will.
A lifelong animal lover, Sylvia enjoyed and took pride in her work as a Financial Accountant with Alex Marion Restaurants. She was a warm and generous woman who made many friends throughout her life. She enjoyed spending time at her cottage, playing cards and had a wonderful sense of humour and spirit. Sylvia passed away in 2009 and is greatly missed by
her family and friends.
When planning her estate she took care to include several charities including the RHS and the lasting impact of her generosity can be felt throughout our community. Today her legacy lives on and for the thousands of cats and kittens who will enjoy a happier stay at the Shelter while awaiting adoption, we know they, as we are, will be forever grateful for her kindness.
Thank you Sylvia.
