Video: Six-year-old girl draws pet portraits to help out small animal rescue society
Six-year-old Isabel Hebert has been drawing portraits of pets to raise money for the Small Animal Rescue Society.
Hebert got the idea to help out the society, which rescues small animals like bunny rabbits and chinchillas, and then adopts them out.
The society pays to have the animals spayed or neutered if necessary, which can cost hundreds of dollars. The animals are then adopted out for $50.
Hebert recently draw portraits of people’s pets for $10, with all proceeds going to the society.
People can send in a photo of their pet, and Hebert will draw a portrait of it. She did several portraits over Valentine’s Day and has plans to do more this summer.
She’s already raised over $1,000 for the society.
