Local 9-Year-Old Turns Craft Into Contributions
Four-legged friends of many kinds, along with their human companions, were recently invited to Today’s Q106 Pet Parade in Middleton, where K9 Boris, Officer Henry Wilson, and Capital K9s made new connections in the community!
While there, we met a delightful and ambitious nine-year-old named Samantha. She’s a third grader at Sunset Ridge Elementary in Middleton, a die-hard animal lover, and already a budding philanthropist!
Samantha has been making home-baked dog treats and fleece chew toys. After packing some of her inventory into her bike basket, she rides around the neighborhood selling her products to interested dog lovers. She’s also starting to appear at area craft fairs and plans to donate some of her proceeds to Capital K9s!
Samantha was excited to meet Officer Wilson at the Pet Parade. She says she hopes to expand her offerings to include dog sweaters, and she has dreams of someday opening a doggie spa retreat and living on a farm with rescue animals.
We’re heartened by Samantha’s kindness and giving spirit. Her passion for the welfare of animals, and her support of police K9s, is an inspiration.
