Kaitlin Snapp likes dogs and cats, but a lot of people like dogs and cats. Besides, that's not the only reason she donated $50 to the local animal shelter.
Kaitlin is 10 years old and this year's fund-raiser at her school was selling gift wrapping. She sold more than anyone else at Jennie Rogers Elementary School, where she is in the fourth grade.
For selling $572 worth of gift wrapping, she won $50. At the end of the fund-raiser, which was in October and November, she was presented the money, but she didn't have it long. She gave it to Dan Turcea of the Boyle County Humane Society.
"I felt like other dogs and cats needed it more than I did," she said. "I'm pretty well off." She didn't say it in a proud or boastful way, but as a fact. She said she hoped the people at the animal shelter would use the money to buy better food for the animals.
