Grady Aders asked for gifts for the animals at A Second Chance Animal Shelter for his seventh birthday, instead of presents for himself.
Grady and his father, Chris Aders, brought in the items May 10. The items included dog collars, treats, dog and cat food, rawhide bones and stuffed animals.
"It was so much that the grateful staff could barely fit it all in the picture for our bulletin board," said shelter manager Sherree Meyer. "A Second Chance Animal Shelter is thrilled with the generosity of a young boy who unselfishly shared his special day with our dogs and cats."
