Animal Welfare Foundation of Canada Lecture in Memory of Basil Capes

Basil Capes was associated with the Animal Welfare Foundation of Canada for many years, serving as both Secretary and President of this organization.

Basil was an architect by profession who had a passionate and abiding
interest in animal welfare. In addition to his main architectural
projects, he often designed animal shelters for Humane Societies and
donated his time in this respect. He also donated books and papers on animal welfare to the University of Guelph Library.

When he passed away, his family and friends decided to establish this
lecture series in his name.

This lecture is supported by the Animal Welfare Foundation of Canada.
