Bullis Charter School fifth-grader Mckayla Kao hopes to raise $1,000 for Pets In Need.

Mckayla Kao, a fifth-grader at Bullis Charter School, has a goal of raising $1,000 for the no-kill animal shelter Pets In Need in Redwood City.

A no-kill shelter doesn’t kill the animals it takes in unless they pose a threat to public health, Mckayla said.

“Pets In Need is the first no-kill shelter in California,” she said. “They take dogs and cats from kill shelters and bring them to their shelter to save the animals.”

According to Mckayla, $25 helps to feed a litter of puppies/kittens, $50 pays for vaccinations for one animal, $150 covers the cost of spaying/neutering, $500 pays for a rescue run to save animals and $1,000 funds a life-saving surgery.
