Madison Thayer, a 10 year old girl from Biddeford just might be a better person than all of us. For her 10th birthday on Monday, instead of the newest tech gadget, or game system, she wanted donations. Instead, she asked her friends and family to make donations to the Animal Welfare Society in Kennebunk. According to WGME 250 lbs of dog food were donated as well as enough money for the adoption fees of 5 senior cats.

Thayer says she wanted to help the senior cats because they need as much love as the kittens. The Welfare society sends out their thanks to Madison and hopes others will follow in her footsteps.
