Foster Smith, a local teenager, celebrated his fourteenth birthday by making a generous donation to the Santa Barbara Humane Society. Foster asked that instead of bringing gifts for himself, guests to his birthday party bring donations of toys, food, and other necessities for the cats and dogs waiting to be adopted at the Santa Barbara Humane Society. On Saturday, September 29 Foster brought the donations to the Humane Society’s campus.
Shelter employees and volunteers were impressed with Foster’s generosity and selflessness. “What a wonderful way for this young man to show his love and compassion for animals and our community,” said Santa Barbara Humane Society Executive Director Kerri Burns. “We are so thankful to him for such a selfless act and so proud of the shining example of generosity and kindness he sets.”
While Foster’s party was off site, the Santa Barbara Humane Society is available as avenue for birthday parties and other events.
