Local Student Raised Funds For Our Animal Shelter:

Aaron Lyons

Aaron Lyons, a 12-year old student at Lecanto Middle School, chose to benefit the dogs at Citrus County Animal Services as his 7th grade school science project entitled “Genius Hour”, a program Google founded to inspire their employees to perform acts that enrich their community. Aaron created a “Go Fund Me” page and set a goal to raise $400. He made use of social media to exceed that goal, and through the generosity of friends and family, he raised over $600.

With that money Aaron purchased enough supplies to give 40 dogs adopted from the shelter a gift bag consisting of dog food, 2 bowls, a chewy toy, one raw hide toy, and a leash and collar. He has plans to revisit his project and raise funds to do the same for the cats here at our shelter.

Thanks Aaron!!
