When Matt Schuler saw the donation canister at the Humane Society of Washington County's information booth at last summer's Martinsburg (W.Va.) Bike Night, he couldn't resist making a donation. Without hesitation, he donated $50 from his trust fund account.

Matt takes a hands-on approach to helping animals. He has purchased sick animals from the local auction and nursed them back to health. 

His mother said whenever an animal gets lost, the pet's owner usually comes to their house to look for it or to get the family's help find it.

The Humane Society is at 13011 Maugansville Road in Hagerstown. For more information, call 301-733-2060 or go to www.hswcmd.org.
