My Sister’s Closet Founder Ann Siner Named Queen of Barks at AHS’ 24TH Annual Compassion with Fashion

Written by: Arizona Humane Society
When it comes to raising money and caring for animals, there may be no bigger animal advocate in the Valley of the Sun than My Sister’s Closet Founder and Owner Ann Siner.

My Sister's Closet As one of the strongest voices for animals, Siner and her company, the Eco-Chic Consignments family of brands (My Sister’s Closet, My Sister’s Attic, Well Suited) have donated more than $1.5 million to further key, life-saving initiatives and help fund AHS’ new Rob & Melani Walton Papago Park Campus.

Dedicated and always giving back, Siner also runs My Sisters’ Charities Thrift Store to benefit AHS and the other charities she’s committed to, including Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center and Fresh Start. From donating clothing and furniture to AHS Thrift Stores, to serving on AHS’ Capital Campaign Cabinet to raise funds for the new Papago Park Campus, to twice chairing Compassion with Fashion, to her long-time service on its Board of Directors, Siner is a key volunteer leader for the organization and she’s a dedicated AHS Foster Hero.

Siner started giving to AHS in 1996 and serving on AHS Board of Directors in 2010. She has always had a passion for pets, through both her career and volunteerism. Her dedication to spay/neuter initiatives through AHS’ Circle of Friends drives much of her work, knowing how powerful it is to proactively prevent animal suffering before it even begins.

So it is only fitting in this record breaking year when the Arizona Humane Society raises the highest amount of money ever $1,541,144.45 to be exact, that Siner be recognized and bestowed the title of Queen of Barks for her lifetime of giving and caring,

“Ann and the team behind Eco-Chic Consignments are not only an integral part of this community, but their philanthropic generosity has helped transform our community for homeless pets, and for that, we are grateful,” said Dr. Steven Hansen, Arizona Humane Society President and CEO. “Ann is a true friend and partner to the Arizona Humane Society and to me. Her generosity, leadership, and compassion have led us far in creating a sustainable, long-term system of care for the most vulnerable animals in the Valley while combating pet overpopulation and keeping pets in homes.”

“This is a tremendous honor to be named Queen of Barks, but most importantly I’m just incredibly honored and humbled to be a part of the team at the Arizona Humane Society. This is a family and a life-saving organization that will always have my support because they are truly making a difference and saving the lives of animals every day,” said Siner.

The money raised at this event will cover the care of more than 1,150 homeless pets and it additionally resulted in the adoptions of all 16 pets on site that day, including 14 dogs, and 2 kittens.

The luncheon was started in 1996 by Beth McRae, her sister Stephanie McRae Campbell and their mother Betty McRae.
