    Anything that supports animals is a win in my book! Since it’s a little out of my budget for the entire package, I would love to win so I can go spend/donate what more I can afford, too! I’ve also never been to a casino before, so this would be really exciting for that reason!!!

  6. Dom September 10, 2015 at 2:46 pm #

    As a vegetarian and animal lover this sounds like my kinda night!

  7. Mimi September 10, 2015 at 3:25 pm #

  41. Erin September 17, 2015 at 8:51 pm #

    My girlfriend and I rescued our cat whilst living in Las Vegas and named her Xoe Meadow because “Las Vegas” means “the meadow.” This would be a wonderful way to reminisce about where we met 5 years ago and where our fun little Sin City Kitty came into our lives! We would love to support this awesome cause and help more fuzzy friends find forever homes! Thank you for the opportunity!!

  42. Jack September 17, 2015 at 9:05 pm #

    This would be so awesome, love the animals!

  43. Christina September 17, 2015 at 9:24 pm #

  49. Nicole September 21, 2015 at 1:33 pm #

    My boyfriend and I haven’t had a date night in a while. I think this would be perfect, plus it would be supporting some we both care about.

  50. Heather September 22, 2015 at 11:03 am #

    After losing our 14 year old black lab to lymphoma, my partner and I began to volunteer for an animal rescue here in Portland. Me and my partner help in rescuing animals that are set to be euthanized. We provide many animals with a foster home where they receive lots of love, training, treats, new beds and toys before they are carefully placed into their new furever home. This would be a great opportunity for my partner and I to have fun and connect with other wonderful people from rescue organizations that are also helping homeless pets.

  51. Jacqueline Santos September 23, 2015 at 2:11 am #

    This would be amazing to win! I’m a huge animal person and this sounds like a great cause.

  52. Don Tidwell September 24, 2015 at 7:02 am #

    because i love animals and gambling

  53. Benita September 24, 2015 at 4:04 pm #

    How do I keep this short and sweet? Especially when there’s so much to say when it comes to homeless animals. I myself have had 5 rescue dogs and 2 cats, I couldn’t have asked for a better family. I’ve shared many laughs and many tears, especially when it was time to say goodbye. I’ve lived in oregon close to a year now, in the beginning, I found myself alone, sad and homesick, not knowing anyone and being without family. Until recently I found me the best little companion a girl could asked for at the Oregon Humane Society. I can’t begin to tell the weight she has lifted on my heartache of being alone, she is now my emotional support pup and I take her everywhere. If only more people would spend more time looking at these facilities when looking for a pet, these animals need so much love and attention. This organization sounds like such a great fundraiser, I would feel honored to attend such a empathetic event. Saving a homeless pet is almost therapeutic. Thank you so much for listening to me blab. ❤️ My dog

    The only thing I like better than going to the casino is spending time with my rescue pup Ren and her kitty Stimpy! What a way to honor both of my passions! This happens to be pay week too, so bring on the games!
