Did Cornell Give A Big FU to Rhoda Hogan’s Bequest Because She’s A Woman?

Many wealthy women throughout history have left some or all of their fortunes to some sort of animal welfare cause.

Leona Helmsley, Tobacco heiress Doris Duke, philanthropist Geraldine Rockefeller Dodge, candy heiress Helen Vorhees Brach and Thelma Doelger, the widow of famed architect Henry Doelger, all established foundations intended to benefit animals.

All of these woman, whose trustees and attorneys were all male had their bequest wishes either overturned, ignored, or used for the bare minimum.

These women’s trustees and attorneys – all or mostly male – either completely ignored their wishes as regards animal welfare causes, or over time came to honor them to an increasingly bare minimum.Could Rhoda Hogan be another example since Cornell lied about how they used her bequest, did the minimum that they had to do with her large bequest, and 14 years later they still haven’t used the remaining $25,502.

American Veterinary Colleges and Declawing in 2019

Here’s our story about how all the veterinary colleges in America address declawing. Out of these 30 American veterinary schools, 10 of them don’t perform declawing at their small animal hospitals, according to employees at their hospitals.

Do The Right Thing Cornell Feline Health Center

Regarding Mrs Rhoda Hogan’s $125,500 bequest to Cornell. Cornell said that they used $100,000 to make 6 short videos. Cornell said that $25,500 has been sitting in a Feline Health Center account all these years and say their, “current leadership intends to use the funds to support novel public outreach efforts to encourage non-surgical alternatives to declawing. They are actively evaluating the most effective means for carrying out this plan.”

Imagine A World Where Declawing Doesn’t Exist

Who knew when I was born that I would spend my life trying to undo an egregious wrong?
Who knew that when I met my mom, that we would embark on a fight that would consume our lives protecting others’ lives?
Who knew that “doctors” who took an oath to do no wrong, could be paid so little to break that oath and sell their good consciences?

Is this unethical pro-declaw veterinarian the NYSVMS public relation’s minion?

I encourage kitten owners to schedule front-claw removal when the animals are spayed or neutered. And I recommend the same procedure, which is done under general anesthesia, for older cats if they are creating problems. Young cats usually recover in two or three days. Recovery is a little longer for cats more than 2 years old. Interested cat owners should talk with their veterinarians. Declawing cats can enhance the relationship between cats and their people.

The Truth. It’s Time For A Change.

The truth. It’s time for a change. A few years ago I took up this important cause to help end declawing because I knew that so many of my fellow cats were being harmed and suffering. I asked my mom for her assistance. She had many creative endeavors going on, and she was quite busy […]
