ROSCOE (WIFR) -- Most kids want toys for their birthday, but 11 year old Victoria Cannon decided to do something different, asking friends and family to spend money on animals instead.
Cannon is one of the youngest members of Angels 4 Animals. It's a rescue group that protests against puppy mills. Today Cannon celebrated her 11th birthday, but instead of getting gifts she asked friends and family to donate items like animal food and horse blankets. The 11 year old says it's better to give back than to receive.
"Some animals don't have a home. lot of homes. I decided these animals really need this," says Victoria Cannon
