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.

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?
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.
