For Adisynn Kiker's 8th birthday, she didn't ask for toys or a big party. Instead, she asked for donations to animals in need.

When her birthday wish went viral, Adisynn collected more than 12,000 pounds of dog and cat food--among other necessities--for all kinds of animals.

According to NBC, Adisynn was able to get:
• 580 pounds of cat litter
• 11,591 pounds of dog food
• 152 pounds of cat food
• 28 cans of cat food
• 43 gallons of bleach
• 7 containers of laundry soap
• 7 containers of Simple Green
• 60 rolls of paper towels

Way to go, Adisynn, and Happy Birthday!
