    Why ask for a puppy when you could feed 1000?

    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!
