|Sherlock waits ....|
Seven-year-old Nico recently started receiving allowance and adopted the Spend, Save, and Donate philosophy. So, when it came time to donate to a worthy organization, there was no question who he wanted to help. The animals, of course! After all, the young philanthropists' parents adopted two shelter cats long before Nico was born. Plus Lin, Nico's neighbor, close friend, and HRA volunteer, adopted a little dog last year. Missi loves when Nico visits -- they play silly games and enjoy quiet time together.
Nico wants all animals to have life-long human companions, but in the meantime, he hopes his donation will help HRA care for animals, like Sherlock, who is patiently waiting for a place and a person that she can call her own.
