HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - A Columbia teenager hopes to brighten up Christmas for all the dogs at the Southern Pines Animal Shelter.
Miss Mississippi USA National Teen Miss Haley Holland visited the shelter this this past weekend and decided to do something special, a pet Christmas toy drive. Holland will try to collect enough toys so every dog will have a toy in their stocking in it's kennel.
"Every animal deserves a chance to feel special," said Holland. I just want to be the voice behind the crown by getting involved and helping my community."
"If you would buy a hard plastic toy like a bone and then email Haley, said Katherine Sammons, SPAS operations manager. "She's coordinating the program. Then on Christmas Day or shortly before the toys will be delivered and handed out to the dogs."
