Brian Weltge, director of the Humane Society of Greater Dayton, said that “when you see young children like this going out-of-their-way to help animals, it just gives you hope in our community that the animals have a safety net of people who really care for them. This is going to help so many animals, and we are so grateful.”
The items purchased were part of the society's "wish list" that can be found at www.hsdayton.org. The items range from toys to blankets to kitty litter.
As he looked at the cart containing an abundance of goods delivered by the three kids, Weltge said this kind of donation is heartwarming.
“We have all kinds of needs. We are a very large not-for-profit but we always need help,” he said.
