On Christmas Eve morning, Laney an 8 year old visited Toms River Animal Facility with her parents Craig and Sharon. There was a wonderful surprise in store for the animals.
Laney had a wonderful vision; to collect donations for the animals. She started out collecting from her room (from her parents), and then braved the cold and sat outside a local pet store with signs asking for donations. The outcome was unbelievable, from blankets to leashes, to toys and treats; the family truck was filled top to bottom. The animals had a nice surprise as Laney passed out dog and cat treats and gave some of the kittys extra special holiday love. The staff spent the better half of the morning happily helping unload and organize all of the donations. “We cannot thank her enough for all that she has done. It is refreshing to see children be so selfless and compassionate,” said Jim Bowen Division Manager.
