A lucky animal-welfare organization in Mount Isa, Australia, received a donation of more than $20,000 this week from a long-lost bank account opened—and forgotten—in the 1990s. Suncorp Bank uncovered the unmonitored account that had been started by the now-defunct Mount Isa Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, and since it could not be returned to its original group, the bank decided to donate it to local animal-rescue operation Paws, Hoofs, and Claws. Of the donation, the president of the group, Sue Carson, says, “It will bring a huge boost for us and will be a great start toward our goal of having a long term project to get a facility here to keep animals at until we manage to obtain permanent homes.”
