Two eight-year-old children have given up their weekends of playing and relaxing in the hopes of raising money for a good cause.
In an effort to raise money for Needy Paws, India Hyde and Elsie Barton taught themselves how to make balloon animals and sold them throughout their neighbourhood.
After raising $159, the girls purchased seven bags of dog food from Griffith Feed and Grain, in recognition of their work the girls were given a substantial discount.
"It really means a lot to us that two little girls, who are so young thought about Needy Paws and the dogs we save from the pound,” Mr Rebetzke said.
"It’s going a long way, it is being distributed among all the carers who care for and feed the dogs."
