A 14 year old girl named Meena Kumar is helping dogs who have been left behind after the same thing happened to her when she was nine months old.
Meena was found abandoned in a basket on a college campus in Pune, India. After spending a year in an orphanage, she was adopted by a couple in Mumbai and brought to San Jose, California.
In Mumbai, Meena would watch over a litter of puppies at her home. When she came to the United States, almost every weekend included a trip to the Humane Society or to Muttville Senior Dog Rescue, which is a cage-free dog rescue that gives senior dogs a “second chance at life”.
Since she is too young to actually work there, she came up with a way she could help by working as a pet-sitter.
With rates of $35 per day and several years of hard work, Meena has managed to raise $7,000. That number doubled to $14,000, thanks to a matching donation program.
