Q: Why bother voting in the Shelter makeover II?

Why should I vote in the Zootoo shelter makeover II when they have never paid out the first prize to Stray Rescue? SR has had to stop construction of their new shelter because zootoo won't pay the million dollars they promised to the winner of the first contest.

There are very specific rules connected with the shelter makeover. Maybe with it being the first year, some people didn't fully understand them. I see no problem with ZooToo paying contractors directly in order to make sure the money is spent appropriately and the work is done correctly. Also, I see no problem with getting contractors to donate services. Part of the idea here is to get the community involved with the shelter. There will still be needs long after the makeover is completed and the entire community needs to be involved.

read Richard's response to that matter. According to Richard, ZooToo has paid contractors and consultants directly, as they should to make sure the money goes to the construction as per the rules. ZooToo doesn't cut a check directly to the shelter. Also that shelter will cost more than $1,000,000 to construct and they knew that before they broke ground.

Honestly I think that should be put aside as most of the information that has been made available is all pretty much 1 sided. As a member of one of the 10 finalists I will continue in my efforts to bring the 1st prize home because I do have confidence in Mr. Thompson and his commitment to the homeless animals in our country, I also have a pretty good idea what to expect and it won't be a blank check to do as we want but rather to work in a partnership to build what we can reasonably support. Besides if I believed everything I read I would never vote for President.............Dennis
