If everyone did for their communities what Maryann does for Kitimat, this world would be a much finer place, so says her nominator. We honour Maryann for the care she shows for both domestic and wild animals….cats, dogs, foxes, bears and all creatures great and small. As the smiling face of the Kitimat Humane Society, Maryann ensures that domestic animals get a warm and loving home and wild animals the opportunity to once more run free. Let me give you an example of Maryann’s devotion….when Kitimat was without a vet, Maryann thought nothing of driving four hours each way to take a wounded animal to see the vet in Prince Rupert.
