It is with great sadness that we have learnt of the death of Avia Riddell Martin at the age of 86, a long term supporter of the KWWSPCA. Avia had a love of all animals from a very early age, especially of dogs and horses. Until very recently, she still kept horses on her land and numerous dogs, combining her love and knowledge of dogs with running very dog friendly boarding kennels. She often fostered dogs for the KWWSPCA at very short notice; the problem being, as with many foster carers, that she often kept them for herself! She supported the KWWSPCA when she could and enjoyed coming to its events, such as the Annual KWWSPCA Dog Show. She will be much missed by all her friends. May she rest in peace.
