Kid to Know starts animal saving goal early!


LODA — This Kid to Know has wanted to be a veterinarian since she was in kindergarten.

Mackenzie Tavenner is now 10; not quite able to get the job just yet, but she still wants to help animals.

She came up with an idea. She tie-dyes t-shirts and raises money for the animal shelter in Hoopeston. Mackenzie sent out a video and people responded in a big way.

She ended up selling more than 40 shirts and raising $600. She’s buying food and supplies and will deliver them soon.
