Dog's best friend

Local boy helps animal shelter

Staff members at the Romulus Animal Shelter got a surprise earlier this month when 9-year-old Dylan Lowrey arrived with a pick-up truck full of pet supplies.
While his parents helped him collect the cash donations from throughout the community, the idea was all Dylan's noted his proud family. He purchased materials for 30-hand-made dog beds, cleaning supplies, animal food and even pizza for the staff at the shelter.

This is the second demonstration of Dylan's altruism, his parents said. Two years ago, at 7, he performed mini guitar concerts throughout the neighborhood and at local businesses to earn $900 which he used to help a single mother purchase Christmas presents for her three children. Dylan delivered the gifts and a meal for the family on Christmas Eve in 2018.
 His efforts for the Romulus Animal Shelter won the appreciation of the staff who posted their thanks and photos on the shelter Facebook page.
