In Pennsylvania, a 9 year old boy won a year's supply of dog food! He submitted photos of his own dogs for an online pet photo contest, and won-- but instead of keeping the food, he has donated it to one of his local shelters!
Caleb Merron told the local news station, WNEP, "I just feel bad for them being stuck in a crate all day,. They go abandoned and they need to be loved, too. It's really nice to donate to people. They need food because soon the animal shelter is going to eventually run out of money so they need that free dog food"
The shelter, Dessin Animal Shelter in Dyberry Township, felt the donation was a godsend. The managers told the TV station they hadn't had many food donations lately.
"Recently we haven't really been getting the trucks filled with the broken bags and everything, so every little bit helps," Caitlyn Robbins, of Dessin Animal Shelter, told the television station. "This food will probably last us at least six months, if not longer, which is a huge impact for the animals.
Merron plans to give the shelter the 12 coupons as soon as he receives them.
