Teen chose charity over gifts for Christmas

A 13-year-old made a selfless decision in early December that meant not opening any gifts on Christmas morning.  Lance Beyer, an eighth-grader at Sevastopol school, decided he would forego any presents and donate items to the Door County Campus of the Wisconsin Humane Society.  Last Saturday, Lance and his mother Mandy Beyer delivered $175 worth of pet food for the animals at the shelter.  He shares why he wanted to give rather than receive during the holidays. 

 

 

 Lance says he asked family members to buy dog and cat food instead of buying him presents.  He says his inspiration and love for dogs come from his pet Chocolate Labrador “Chip”.

 

 

  The Door County Campus of the Wisconsin Humane Society adoption hours are Monday, Wednesday and Fridays from noon until 6 pm and Saturdays from noon until 4 pm.
