A series to share #smiles across our community through the achievements of our local youth, brought to you by Rendezvous Dental.

Alayna from Riverton recently turned 5-years-old.

For her birthday this year, instead of asking for presents, she asked for her friends and family to help her donate the money to a Riverton animal shelter.

Alayna collected $155, which she proudly donated to PAWS For Life Animal League in Riverton this weekend.

The donation will help the critters staying at PAWS have a more comfortable stay!

You can check out more details on PAWS, and view adoptable pets here.
