♥Dog and ower donate one million dollars to shelters♥ Would you?

Think about it. Think about it long and hard. All of us love our dogs and several of us have rescue dogs. Quite a few of us spend time as a shelter volunteer. BUT, how many of us would donate one million dollars to dogs and cats?

Honestly, I know if I won I'd keep some for myself and my children. Yes, I would donate some and most likely to benefit animals, but not the whole sum. Yes, the woman is a doctor and, yes, she has a lovely home; however, I don't know many wealthy people who would donate their entire winnings.

What a story! I would love to give away a million dollars to help all animals! To be honest though, if I was ever lucky enough to win any money, I'd probably keep some for myself and my animals and donate alot of it but not all of it. If I was rich, I would give all of it!!

She was very nice to do that, more than nice. Extraordinary!
If I had a lot of money and didn't need it, I would give it up. I'm sure I would. All the money in the world doesn't buy happiness but it can give some good help to a worthy cause!

My mom loves this story but for her, she'd use it to build an incredible home for old beagles rather than giving it away. Okay, she says she would give some away. At least I know I'll have a home when I'm old. Yay!

love & wags,

We heard about Dr. Papides and his win and subsequent donation of his prize - just absolutely amazing and inspiring. He and his family are truly a rare find in today's world - kudos to them for their spectacular generosity. What goes around comes around - they will be rewarded greatly for their kindness.

Hugs, the OP Pack
