MIDLAND, TX (KWES) - Two kids in Midland spent their spring break cooking for a cause.
Daniel Thornton and Bryan Floyd say after seeing a story about Akin Blade, a dog who was found with ears crudely cropped, they decided to do what they could to help.
With the help of Bryan's grandmother, Debra Northcutt, the boys set up a bake sale in front of their neighborhood on Greentree Boulevard and ask for donations.
With signs in hand, their efforts were rewarded by the community, the boys raised $428 for their cause.
Dozens of people stopped by to show their support, many of them with dogs of their own.
As word spread around town, the boys had a special surprise guest show up to their stand.
Akin Blade, the rescue dog that sparked their passion was brought to see the young philanthropists by a volunteer who is helping him find a new home.
The boys were excited to see Akin who showered them in hugs and kisses.
With the boys help, and donations from others, the veterinarian who treated Akin says the costs of his treatment have been well exceeded, so the Andrews Animal clinic has decide to use the leftover money to start a fund that will help pay for the costs of other injured rescue animals.
