I would like the donation to be made to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Utah. They were one of only a few who were willing to take in the dogs who were victims of Michael Vick and the terrible torture he inflicted on them. Best Friends showed the dogs there are good people in the world who cared about them and loved them. They also take in all types of animals in need of love and care.
