Hometown Pasco for March 4

 
Young author helps animals again:  On Jan. 10, author Selena Schulz turned 10. During her party at Pasco County Animal Services, she hoped to collect 10 times the animal donations and supplies she collected during her eighth birthday party, and get 10 dogs and 10 cats adopted. To help the cause, her school held a drive to collect items. Schulz’s eighth birthday kicked off her passion — helping shelter animals find forever homes and writing. Her first self-published book, A Bed A Buck A Buddy, was a true story of the celebration of her eighth birthday, where she asked friends to bring pet food and other animal supplies instead of a gift for her. Since that first book, Schulz has donated to local shelters with book proceeds, has written a second book, has written a song and has done an inspirational music video. During the latest party, Schulz collected about 675 pounds of dry dog food, 126 pounds of dry cat food, 60 cans of wet dog food, 57 cans of wet cat food, toys and treats, cat litter, blankets, dog beds, flea and tick medicine and lots of other supplies, in addition to $400 in cash. Twenty animals were adopted. Schulz is the daughter of Jomary and Kurt Schulz of Land O’Lakes.
