Nine-year-old Caleb Merron of Lake Ariel, Pennsylvania, thought it would be fun to enter an online photo contest, so he took a picture of his two dogs, Sadie and Charlie, and sent it in.
He won the “fan favorite” award -- and the prize was a year’s worth of dog food.
While Caleb certainly loves Sadie and Charlie, he has a big heart and knows some of the dogs at a local animal shelter. So he donated the dog food prize to the shelter.
The timing was perfect, food donations to the shelter had dwindled. This will keep them going for a while.
Caleb is certainly proud to have won the award and happy to be recognized for the work he did on the photo. But he’s especially happy to have helped many animals for months to come.
