Legacy gift creating bright future for animals at Peterborough Animal Care Centre

by | Media Releases |

PETERBOROUGH, ON (April 29, 2022)
The love and passion that people have for companion animals is simply phenomenal. The Estate of Linda Jean Forth has generously made a legacy gift valued at $208,000 towards the Peterborough Humane Society’s Our Pet Project capital campaign to build the Peterborough Animal Care Centre (PACC).

“Linda was a mechanical engineer. She ran the tech department at Georgian College for 35 years. She travelled the world. Most of Europe, Russia, Iceland, and all of Great Britain. As well as Africa, visiting Egypt, Kenya, Rwanda and Mozambique. Climbed to see the silver back gorillas. She boated and swam in the Amazon River and went to the Galapagos, and most of Asia. She was a pure lover of animals. Rather than give gifts at Christmas we’d receive notes saying we were foster parents to an elephant or tiger.” shared Floyd Storring, Executor of the Will “There was obviously something she saw in your organization to warrant her to include you in her Will, and to support the amazing work being done by your organization.”

“We are honoured to recognize Linda, her love for animals, and her contribution to animal wellness through our new Centre. This donation to the Centre will not only change the lives of the animals in our care but our entire community and beyond!” says Shawn Morey, Executive Director of the Peterborough Humane Society. “Legacy gifts are an amazing way to leave a lasting impact, and we are truly thankful to be a part of Linda’s legacy. Her passion for animals will live on for generations to come through this gift.”


The Peterborough Animal Care Centre which is currently under construction at 1999 Technology Drive in Peterborough is scheduled for completion this Fall. The centre will be over 24,000 square feet and include a state-of-the art Animal Adoption & Education Centre, Publicly Accessible & High-Volume Spay/Neuter Clinic and a Provincial Dog Rehabilitation Centre.
