Ann Siner — the CEO/founder of My Sister’s Closet, My Sister’s Attic, Well Suited and My Sisters’ Charities Thrift Store — donates hundreds of thousands of dollars to help Arizona’s homeless pets.
Ms. Siner will present another big check at 11 a.m. on Saturday, April 17 outside the My Sister’s Closet’s Lincoln Village store, 6204 N. Scottsdale Road, in Scottsdale, a $100,000 donation to Arizona Humane Society, which is a final installment of a million dollar pledge she undertook in 2018, according to a press release.
In addition to the check presentation, light bites and refreshments will be offered, the release said, noting the Arizona Humane Society will also have animals on site for adoption.
“I couldn’t be prouder to be part of this campaign and support the Arizona Humane Society. I am 100% behind them and everything they do. Animals are my life’s work and I wanted to really make a difference,” stated Ann Siner, Eco Chic Consignments CEO and founder, who is also on the board of directors and committee for the Arizona Humane Society.
“Our million-dollar donation gets AHS closer to fulfilling the dream of the new Central Campus and Animal Medical Center and that will ultimately save the lives of hundreds of thousands more animals in the process.”
Meeting needs of the growing community and continue saving lives of homeless pets, the Arizona Humane Society has proposed a new Central Campus and Animal Medical Center, expanding medical and behavioral programming, adoption and outreach efforts.
Providing a regional level of comprehensive care for the most vulnerable pets including those sick, injured, abused and abandoned, the Central Campus and Animal Medical Center will mark a new era for animal welfare in Arizona, noted the release.
“Ann, Tess and the team be-hind Eco-Chic Consignments, Inc. are not only an integral part of this community, but their philanthropic generosity has helped transform our community for homeless pets, and for that we are grateful,” said Arizona Humane Society President/CEO Dr. Steven Hansen in a prepared statement.
“As a longstanding friend, partner and donor to the Arizona Humane Society they have donated millions to our pets and lifesaving programs. Their $1 million gift to AHS’ proposed Central Campus & Animal Medical Center is not only a testament to the worthiness of this project, but exemplifies their generosity, leadership and compassion and puts us one step closer to our vision of creating a sustainable, long-term system of care for the most vulnerable animals in the Valley, while combating pet overpopulation and keeping pets in homes.”
AHS’ trauma hospital and acute medical care programs has operated from the same facility opened 64 years ago, the release said, describing how standards of care have evolved but not the physical structure at Sunnyslope since it is an aged, undersized, outdated, inefficient, and partially dilapidated structure.
To end animal suffering and needless euthanasia, AHS must construct a new campus that makes possible an unprecedented level of comprehensive medical and behavioral care, detailed the release about the new Central Campus, which will be near the juncture of the 202 and 143 freeways.
A regional hub for comprehensive services, the center will have acute medical and trauma care, behavior rehabilitation, rescue and cruelty investigations, adoption resources and education programs, noted the release.
AHS has secured $16.6 million in cash pledges and $1 million in in-kind services. With funds already secured, AHS has purchased the land and began working with Animal Arts, an architecture company specializing in animal shelter design, to create the new facility, the release added.
