||Alex wanted to do something very special for the shelter animals at Humane Society of Catawba County.
Instead of asking for gifts for her 10th birthday, Alex asked her family and friends to donate items from the HSCC Wish List for the shelter animals.
Alex wants to be a veterinarian when she is older so she is starting early to find ways to help.
The shelter animals thank Alex, pictured with her sister Haley for thinking of them.

ASK DR. ALOT
Dr. Alot (also known as Lancelot) is one of HSCC's resident shelter cats. From his many adventures, he realizes there are many of us humans that do not understand the needs of his four-legged friends.
If your pet or you have a question, email Dr. Alot using the link below and he will reply and your question might even show up here!
Mary from Conover asked "Can fleas get on my dog during the winter?"
Dr. Alot replied, "Yes fleas like to ride inside on your pet and hide in the carpet, furniture, and other places in your warm house."
Al from Hudson asked "Can my dog get heartworms all year?"
Dr. Alot replied, "Yes mosquitoes give your dog heartworms, and mosquitoes can live in your house and outside all year."
