Little boy goes to shelter to adopt a dog and uses allowance to rescue two other dogs

Jaxton is a true hero.


Four-year-old Jaxton Betschart is a big-hearted little boy who has always loved animals. And so, when his mom told him they could adopt a dog, he was over-the-moon excited.

Once they got to the shelter, Jaxton proved just how big his heart is when he gave up his allowance to help the dogs he saw.

For most kids, their allowance will be used for the latest toy or candy. Yet Elyse Betschart was amazed when her son Jaxton decided to do something more humanitarian with his savings by donating his money.

After bringing Jaxton to the Charleston Animal Society, he decided to pay the adoption fee for two pit bulls.

Tank, a dark gray pit bull, was one of Jaxton’s two sponsorship choices. The little boy was so excited to see Tank that he ran up to the front of his enclosure.

“Mommy! He’s big and chunky like me,” Jaxton told his mother, according to iHeartDogs.

Initially, Jaxton wanted to adopt Tank but the family was unable to due to breed restrictions on military housing.
