On Oct. 15, Katelyn White will turn 23 years old; for her birthday, she wants just one thing - for the animals who are in the care of the Wakulla County Animal Shelter and Cauzican Care Animal Rescue to have all of their needs and wants met.
For the past year, White has volunteered for the shelter and she describes the shelter workers as "the most compassionate people" that she has ever met.
White was able to foster several dogs for the shelter, but now, her university studies make that temporarily impossible.
In an effort to continue providing, in some way, for the sheltered animals, White has decided to hold a fundraiser to help provide those homeless cats and dogs with toys, food and supplies.
I just want the dogs in foster care and the dogs in the shelter to have their needs and wants met on my birthday. It would make me feel really good to know those animals have their needs and wants met.
In order to make donating an item to the shelter animals, White created an Amazon Wish List specifically for them (click here to see/order).
White's ultimate dream, like so many others, is to see every animal in a loving home - but until that happens, her dream is to see every animal at the shelter, that she respects so much, to be completely provided for, with both needs and wants, by her birthday.
White hopes that the Amazon wishlist will enable donors to easily help, but noted that local residents can help directly as well, stating:
If anyone is a Tallahassee, FL local they can contact Cauzican directly at Cauzicanfl@gmail.com to drop off at one of their spots!
