Generous bequest for refuge
DURING one of their hardest periods as an animal shelter, a bequest of $20,000 has been given to the Mareeba Animal Refuge by the late Margaret (Liz) Adomeit following her passing on 18 June 2021.
Ms Adomeit’s donation was one of many she made to local charities that work with animals.
Refuge manager Jennifer Walsh said she was beyond thankful for the generous donation, especially as surrendered and abandoned dogs continued to fill up the facility.
“She was obviously a great animal lover, and we are so very grateful as we desperately need it,” she said.
“We were getting to another point where we were asking ‘what are we going to do’ so it is so welcomed by us.
“It’s just truly a wonderful thing to do and I think it's so good that she thought of doing this before her passing and now her legacy will live on through this.”
Through her bequest, Ms Adomeit’s generosity will help many animals entering the refuge with their vet bills and with the purchasing of food and litter.
