FAYETTE COUNTY - Puppies are receiving extra attention on Sunday when a young girl decided to hold her birthday party at a local animal shelter.
10-year-old Ellie Grove held her birthday party at the New River Animal Shelter on Sunday. Her mother says that Ellie came up with the idea two months ago when she decided she wanted dog and cat food to donate rather than dolls. That idea transitioned into asking the humane society if the actual party could be held at the shelter.
Dozens of bags of pet food were brought to the party. Humane society representatives said that anyone who may be interested in having their birthday at the shelter can give them a call.
