Pre-teen puts homeless critters on the web

Filed under: Teens, In The News

Eleven-year-old Jennie Lupkin loves animals. She loves them so much that she helps out at her local animal shelter and has built a website to convince people to adopt the dogs and cats she helps care for. Her plea for a home for Baby Face, a dog awaiting a new home, is heartfelt and honest and shows true caring on her part.

Not surprisingly, Jennie plans to be a veterinarian and wants to continue working with rescued animals. In the meantime, the sixth-grader helps out at the shelter and cares for her own menagerie -- a dog, a hermit crab, two birds and fish. It's nice to hear of a kid making a difference and it sounds like Jennie is doing a lot more than the average pre-teen. Way to go, Jennie!
