The Nancy J. Brua Animal Care Center was surprised by a large donation of $1.2 million.

SIERRA VISTA — A $1.2 million gift left to the Nancy J. Brua Animal Care Center has helped jumpstart an expansion plan at the facility that was put on hold for lack of funding.

Last month shelter officials learned that Sierra Vista resident Sue Hirsheimer, who passed away in February, left $1.2 million to the center. Hirsheimer, a 20-year resident of the city, was 75 when she died, said her friend, Fred Seage.
