Q: Will shelters and rescues share 5 - 8 billion dollars?

The late billionaire Leona Helmsley left most of her fortune in a Trust valued at $5-8 billion, to be used to benefit dogs, per her Mission Statement...but her wish might not be honored. Do you think it should be honored fully, and if so, how should the money be used?

I think it would benefit "the majority" to put it in a high interest trust fund and divide that money in grants.

It's amazing how much 5-8 billion dollars makes in interest each year! She could easily fund the annual zootoo contest and have plenty left over to award something to all top 20 positions!

I think it should be used to benefit as many shelter dogs as poss. I'm not sure how it should be doled out to make it fair. I'm surprised, being the business woman she was, that she didn't designate where her funds were to go in her will. I think her dog is being taken care of in fine fashion for the rest of his little life.
