Tabitha is 12 years old, and was born in Joplin, MO. On may 22nd, 2011, her brother and his family lost their home to the devastating tornado. The tragedy not only affected the people of the city, but it's furry friends. It has been her goal since that time to raise money for helping pets and shelters that could use a helping paw. Many many pets lost their homes, and hundreds of animals flooded the shelters. Similar situations exist in shelters across the country.
