$3m benefactor Frank Samways is a dog’s – and the Lost Dogs Home’s – best friend

A big-hearted businessman has left Melbourne’s Lost Dogs Home $3 million — the largest bequest in its 100-year history.

Staff at the animal shelter described the donor, Frank Samways, as a man so empathetic for abandoned pets that he wouldn’t enter the animal shelter in Gracie Street, North Melbourne.

The home’s managing director, Graeme Smith, said Mr Samways, a charming, charismatic person, used to attend donor functions in the home’s courtyard. But [he] never set foot inside the shelter because he thought it would be too disturbing for him. He didn’t want to see any dog or cat incarcerated — via redwolf.newsvine.com
