Dylan Lowrey of Romulus is making sure local animals are getting what they need during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Lowrey, 9, who loves animals of all kinds, recently collected cash donations from members of his community, which he used to purchase a truckload of supplies for the Romulus Animal Shelter.

Some of the purchased supplies Included materials for 30 hand-sewn dog beds, pet food, litter, and pizza for the shelter’s staff.

Lowrey has always had a passion for helping his community in creative ways.

Two years ago, he raised $900 by playing his guitar at a local businesses for donations, using the cash to help a single mother of three have a Christmas meal and presents that year.

He hopes to be a veterinarian or fire fighter when he grows up.
