Set it up in low risk investments and live off the interest.
Then I'd probably buy an island in the South Pacific or Caribbean and become a Bond villain...blow up the moon or something.
This after I pay off any debts (parents' mortgage, cars, etc.), buy a few bikes, and ransack Cancun for a month. I'd throw this animal shelter by me $1M and give to some smaller charities where 100% of the donation is used (no United Way bullshit).
I would get the fuck out of Dodge. You know that everyone who remotely knows you will have their hand out.
