Ava Falcone and Emma McElwaney, two little leprechauns from Westerly, stopped by PetSense in Westerly on St. Patrick's Day and collected donations for the Westerly Animal Shelter. All proceeds will go to the shelter.

"They wanted to do something kind for the shelter, so the two animal lovers created and implemented a school-wide fundraiser at State Street Elementary School where they are both fourth-graders," said Ava's mom, Deanna. "They decided to branch out into the community as well and PetSense was happy to open their doors to this great cause! They have raised almost $600 so far."
