Savannah Williams, a fifth grade student at Harvester Christian Academy, and her mother, Debra Williams, delivered two pet beds to the Douglas County Animal Shelter to help provide comfort to shelter animals during their stay.
This is not the first time Savannah has been an animal shelter donor. For her birthday, she asked for gifts of animal food and supplies that she could in turn donate to the shelter. She also donated $200 to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital from birthday funds.
“It is wonderful to see the outpouring of generosity of the community who want to contribute to the health and well-being of our shelter animals,” said Liz Marino, Douglas County Animal Control Resource Officer. “It is especially heartwarming to see a young person such as Savannah sacrifice gifts for herself in order to help our animals.”
The fifth grader has already made career plans to become a veterinarian when she grows up.
