for a second year, the First Lady decided to forgo the traditional birthday gifts and ask her party guests to bring donations for pets in need.
this morning we made the drop off at our vets office....she couldn't wait!
our vet, Dr. Phillips, collects donations that he delivers to two different food shelves in our town. people coming for food for their families are then able to take items for their pets too.
after all, aren't pets family members too?
he was so excited to get such a big donation but that was not all of it. she was also given many PetCo gift cards from her friends to donate so she gets to be his personal shopper and purchase exactly what the shelf is low on. this girl loves to shop so that was a good deal.
helping animals has always been her passion since she was very small. she says she wants to be a veterinarian but she definitely has this fight in her that makes me think perhaps someday she'll be raiding puppy mills, designing prosthetics for animals with missing limbs, or running her own shelter.
whatever it is she'll be good at it:)
