RBC donates to animal rescue

Funds will go toward much-needed vet bills for rescued animals

RBC Royal Bank in Clearwater donated proceeds from its community book sale to Maddy’s Paws and Claws Rescue, which will go toward much-needed vet bills for the rescued critters.

During the year RBC has a book sale at the Clearwater branch to benefit local charities and causes, and over the months of September and October the bank brought in $225 for the animal rescue.

“(It feels) fantastic — it’s really nice to see people who do care about the animals in the community and that there’s so much support out there. I’m very thankful for RBC for doing this,” said Maddy Capostinksy, owner of Maddy’s Paws and Claws.

“This will help a lot toward cat neuters, medicine, deworming, vaccines and anything else like that.”

The tale of Bumper the cat

Capostinsky added that ideally she’d like to help eliminate the feral cat colonies in the area and she believes Clearwater is headed in the right direction in terms of accomplishing that goal.
