One local little girl has quite a heart for shelter pets!

Last month, Makenna Song, a student at Inland Leaders Charter School, was given a class assignment of a community service project, and there was no doubt that she wanted to help out Yucaipa Animal Placement Society (YAPS). 

She started by baking homemade treats for the dogs in the no-kill shelter, then asking her friends and neighbors for supplies that could be donated as well.  

"The YAPS pets and team are so grateful for the thoughtful, kind act Makenna Song and many other children have accomplished!," the non-profit organization wrote on its Facebook page. "Thank you for such a generous donation!"

Great job, Makenna!
