Most kids want to receive gifts on their birthday, but a 7-year-old in Pitt County used his birthday to give gifts to animals at a shelter.
Bryson Woolverton celebrated his 7th birthday this weekend, but instead of asking for birthday presents, he asked his family and friends to help him collect supplies, toys, and treats for Pitt County Animal Services.
Bryson had a dog and cat themed birthday party, where his guests were able to adopt either a stuffed puppy or kitten, complete with adoption papers.
They played “Pin the Tail on the Llama” and gave out party favors, including cow tails and Scooby Snacks.
After school on Monday, Bryson proudly wheeled his wagon full of cleaning supplies, pill pockets, treats, toys, cat food, dog food, kitten formula, and kitty litter into the animal shelter.
He also got to hand treats to each dog at the shelter.
Bryson’s parents say they’re proud their son is so selfless that he would forgo presents for himself to help animals at the shelter.
