BANGOR – The Bangor Humane Society recently received its largest donation to date.
Violet and James Moffett of Dover-Foxcroft left more than $1.3 million dollars to the humane society in their will.
“It was amazing, we’ve never received a donation of this nature that we’re aware of in the history of the organization, we’ve been here for 150 years. We’ve never gotten one this big. And again it’s a game changer for us, we were really able to do things with it that will really impact animals in a positive way in the community,” said Suzan Prendergast, the shelter’s executive director.
She also said half a million dollars of the donation is funding the building’s current renovations.
The remaining balance will be placed in an endowment fund in honor of Violet.
