Stan Kass, a true philanthropist and dog lover plans to donate $500 to the Elmbrook Humane Society (located in Brookfield, WI.) for each dog adopted!
He really really wants to try and save as many dogs as possible this summer.
So for every dog adopted from the no-kill shelter this June, July and August he will give $500 dollars until
Tom Hardy and his dog helped to raise funds for a charity he's a big fan of in London.
He's going to drive across Siberia to raise money for three charities, one of which is FLACK.
FLACK is a magazine that provides job opportunities for homeless people in Cambridge, England.
"I'm incredibly proud to be patron of FLACK… that benefits people who are or have been homeless.
It’s unique in that everyone – homeless, housed, staff, volunteer, service user – pulls together to write and produce a comprehensive listings magazine for Cambridge with articles, poetry and reviews."
What a great organization.
Wondering how his dog helped?
His dog was just at his side, being super cute and just dogging around.
Which is fine by us. Just look at that cute face.
Both of them! LOLz!
If you want to donate to the charity, you can visit Tom's donation page: HERE!
Even though there is an international moratorium on whaling, banning all forms of whaling for everything expect a "scientific research" loophole (which Japan exploits yearly), many countries continue to hunt whales.
In fact, since the ban, the number of whales killed each year has almost doubled in the past decade!
The whole quota thing sounds overly complicated, almost creating a stock market for whales.
Each whale will
Victoria Principal fears offshore drilling oil spills just as much as most other people.
But she's really doing something about it.
She's apparently been making "extremely generous six-figure donations" to two organizations that lobby against offshore oil drilling.
An Italian woman, Marisa Assunta, died at 94 last month.
Living to 94 is pretty amazing, but what's more amazing is that her will left her entire estate and fortune to her cat.
Her cat, Tommaso, who was a stray until she rescued him, is now the richest cat in the world!
Catnip for everyone!!
Except there's a catch.
Just like in America, in Italy, you can't leave your money to your pet.
Problem was, Ms. Assunta had no living relatives and apparently no friends.
So her estate attorneys decided that both the cat, and all the money, are going to the nurse who cared for the elderly woman.
The nurse said:
"I had no idea signora had such wealth."
Well you've got it now!
But you better make sure that cat has the most pampered life after you've stolen his $13,000,000! LOLz!

The Lawrenson family is trying to pay off their car. Christy Lawrenson said:
"My husband and I are trying to pay off my car, and so every time we save $1,000, we just take it to the bank and we just put it in the account, so we have no checks."
So she withdrew her money, paper clipped it together and left it in an envelope on her counter, then left for work.
When her husband came home on his lunch break, the envelope was gone.
He looked all around and found pieces of hundred dollar bills scattered across the living room floor.
Her husband fed the dog peroxide (a safe way to induce vomiting). He said:
"I took the money from the vomit and put it in a bag and saved it for him because I didn't want to puzzle it back together. It was still not real to me even though I had dug through vomit all afternoon."
They took the pieces to the bank and were able to retrieve $900.
They sent the last, totally destroyed bill, to the US Treasury, along with a letter of explanation, hoping for a reimbursement.
"I didn't really see that one coming and I guarantee we'll keep money away from now on."
So remember, don't leave your money within reach of a hungry dog, or else you might be explaining to the Treasury, "my dog ate my
