I'm just sick. We'd been so excited because our shelter made the top 10 for the makeover this year. Then, a friend sent me an article written by the Associated Press describing how the Missouri shelter that won last year hasn't seen a penny of the 1 million dollars. Google to find the story. The site won't let me post the URL. What do you make of this????

In this case as in life in general, I try to always give people the benefit of the doubt. There are always at least two sides to every story. The facts will come later. Try to refocus your energies on making sure all of your people have profile pictures posted so they are allowed to vote. Turning out voters and winning the contest is more crucial right now than worrying about whether the money will come down the road IF you win.

I think we don't rush to judgement. Zootoo has been very forthright as to what they will do and what we can expect. I will continue to push forward and find it regretable that the timing was at the time of the announcement of this years finalists and that has put a damper on your enthusiasm...................Dennis

I also had heard about this info that zootoo
didn't fulfill their agreement but learned from
a friend of mine that the shelter overextended
their side of the bargain and were way above their million dollar makeover which they wanted zootoo to cover.

Don't know at this point who is right or wrong. Would love
to hear others opinions.
