If you were to ask a child what they look forward to most about their birthday, you might expect the answer to be a party with all their friends, a delicious birthday cake or maybe a heaping pile of presents. But for nine-year-old Emily, her only birthday wish was a truly selfless one—to help injured, orphaned and homeless animals.

Emily and VioletSo when her 10th birthday came around, she decided to ask for donations to PAWS instead of birthday gifts! Emily was first introduced to PAWS when she and her mother rescued and brought in an injured bird to the PAWS Wildlife Center. She knew immediately that she wanted to help the animals in any way she could.

Emily has always appreciated nature and wild animals, and she and her family provide a loving home for her pet cat Violet. Because of her love of animals and her desire to help, Emily decided to ask for donations to PAWS in lieu of birthday presents for herself.

Thanks to her kind and giving heart, Emily made a generous donation of dog and cat food, toys and $100.

Thank you Emily for your kindness and compassion toward animals!

Here are more great ways for kids to get involved and help animals!
