Ava’s Cause


Ava Abood has been raising money for Capital Area Humane Society since she was young, collecting donations around her neighborhood and selling waters at her family’s annual garage sale. Ava also volunteers at the shelter. For her 10th birthday, she asked for all gifts to go to CAHS. When the annual CAHS Fur Ball was cancelled this spring, Ava was inspired to hold her own remote event at home. Over the course of fundraising, she raised over $8,000 thanks to contributions from friends, family, and community members.
