It's the season of giving and David Drawbaugh, 13, wants to make sure that includes everyone, even those with fur and four legs. David recently made a donation of various pet items to the Humane Society of Washington County collected during his "Santa Paws" project. David was inspired to collect items after seeing a commercial on television depicting homeless pets. "I felt really bad for them and thought that they deserved more. They're alone at the holidays and I wanted to make them happy by giving them their own Christmas gifts," David said.
