GIGOO: After retiring from the family business, British publishing heir Miles Blackwell moved to the country to raise rare hens and sheep. When he died shortly after his wife in 2001, he gave away most of his $95 million fortune to good causes, and nearly $15 million to create a foundation for rare breeds – including his hen Gigoo (not pictured here). Do you think Miles money to create a foundation for rare birds went to a good animal cause?

When he died in 2006, aged 16, Moose was thought to have a net worth of more than $3 million. Do you remember Eddie the dog from the TV show Frasier?

KALU: A Congolese chimp was set to become wildly rich until her owner (the daughter of a countess) lost her $59 million fortune. When Patricia O'Neill rescued the abandoned pet and took her to live on her South African sanctuary, it looked like Kalu would inherit – thanks to a rift between Patricia and her husband. A dishonest investment broker has since lost O'Neill's money and the sanctuary now needs donations via www.patcavendishoneill.com. Would you be willing to donate to O'Neill's South African sanctuary?
