“He chose Happy Tails Farm Sanctuary because he wanted to help animals,” Black said. “He worked really hard to sell as much lemonade as he could. Quite a number of people donated to his cause, not because they really wanted lemonade, but because they wanted to support animals.”
The money Lleyton earned at his stand helped the sanctuary buy some much-needed supplies from its Amazon wish list.
"Children are born with a natural compassion towards animals,” Carla Reilly Moore, founder of Happy Tails, told The Dodo. “This little boy did this out of pure joy of our sanctuary and the animals who live there!”
And soon enough, Lleyton got to see the fruits of his action. Last weekend, Lleyton and his family were able take a day and drive a couple hours to visit the sanctuary. There Lleyton got to meet a whole menagerie of rescued animals in person, including a sheep named Charlie, who was rescued when he was just two days old from a farm that didn’t want him.
