Sunday Snapshot~ Her donations

Well, it was now time to make her donations. Her party unfortunately did not have as many guests as she'd hoped but fortunately she was given some great things to donate- one of them being a pet store gift card that one friend thought she could use to pick out some donations on her own. Sweet.
As luck would have it, the day we chose to stop in and use the card was the same day a pit bull rescue had decided to set up with a few of their adoptees.

It didn't take long for that inevitable question to be asked, "mom, can we take one home?" That was a simple answer being that we already have a pit rescue of our own, one that has made it known that she doesn't care for other canines. So no, definitely not.  
She kinda knew that already, but made it her goal to try to convince everyone else who dared to stop for a few seconds to take one home. In the end she asked the rescue ladies what their bullies liked the best and they were totally shocked when she went and bought them with her gift card and handed them over.  Mission almost completed.

On her way out she proceded to tell others coming in that their were nice dogs to adopt in the back of the store. She's relentless I tell ya.

Next it was off to a different pet store to locate Last Hope, another local shelter that comes in on Saturdays to raise funds for their foster program.I love the determination on that face
They were quite amazed with this little girl who had given up presents for pet food that she could donate to dogs and cats, but if you knew her you wouldn't be surprised one bit. After all she does come from a long line of pet rescuers. Her great grandmother and great great aunt alone must've have taken in every stray in the state of Ohio.
We're so proud of you baby for making a difference
