So cool. That is my running joke whenever we play the lottery, which is not very often - I always say that my winnings will fund my dog rescue project :D

God bless her! We send a monthly check to a local guy who lives in a barn with (currently) 112 dogs who are deemed non adoptable. People like that are saints.

God bless her indeed. I wish I had the money to do this.

I would open up a cat cafe if I won the lottery a BIG ONE (well, lots of cat space) and contract with local shelters to bring the kitties in and get them adopted out in a fun and relaxing environment. And then I'd buy land and do a sanctuary for cats that are not adoptable for whatever reason and need a no kill forever home.

She's wonderful for doing what she can. Thank you for sharing.

Stories like this help me keep my faith in human beings whenever I am ready to write humanity off as not deserving to be on this planet.

I think it's wonderful. My dad has been saying for years that he will leave everything to the Humane Society. Selfishly that makes me a little sad, of course, but honestly I would be so proud of him if he committed to that very noble intention. I hope that he has worked out a way to at least leave a sizable amount to the organization. None of my business, obviously, but that would be really cool to hear (hopefully many years in the future) at the reading of his will. Wait... if I make it that long! ;))

I find a lot of honor in those who give to causes for animals. Thank you for sharing this story, RockinRuby.
