A donation in honor of Drake the guinea pig

Categories: Blog, Compassion In Action

We recently received the sweetest letter along with a very meaningful donation from a young supporter named Penelope. Her letter read:

“Dear Marin Humane,

Hi, I’m Penelope and I’m 10 years old. I adopted a guinea pig from your shelter about a year ago his name was Drake. I still have him along with another one named Fabio. I absolutly love them and couldn’t have done this without you guys.

Because of this once I saw the mail from you I quickly opened it and am thrilled about giving a donation. My mom, Donna, is helping me write my first check and I’m sure I won’t regret writing my first check for you. I hope you can take this donation of $6.14.

Love, Penelope

p.s. sorry for all the spelling errors I have made I’m only in 5th grade.”

Thank you, Penelope, for supporting our shelter and for adopting Drake! We think you – and your spelling – are awesome!
