A Langley woman who won $1 million in a Maxmillion lotto ticket on Dec. 18 says she’s planning to help rescue dogs.

“I still don’t feel this is real,” said Loriann Sandy. “I am still asking myself if this is real.”

Sandy plans to use some of her winnings to buy a large SUV so she can accommodate her cat and two Rottweilers. She will also donate money to Rottweiler Rescue in Vancouver and the B.C. SPCA.

“I think this is good karma because I love to help animals and I donate to the BC SPCA monthly,” said Sandy.

Sandy bought the winning ticket at Ed’s Market in Langley.

She was alone when she checked and found she had the winning numbers, but was able to drive herself home safely before telling her mother about the big win.

“She is very excited about my win. My mom has already shared the news with the rest of our family,” said Sandy.
