LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A Las Vegas valley boy is helping feed dogs in shelters by donating money from his dog cookie business.

Victor Van Meer is the CEO of Victor’s Doggie Cookies. He works alongside his father to create dog cookie creations made from fresh, human-grade ingredients.

Each month, the fifth grader selects a shelter to receive a donation from him. This time it was the Nevada SPCA. It received a $750 donation to buy food for the dogs waiting to be adopted.

According to the SPCA, Van Meer was inspired after his family adopted two dogs who were just one day away from being euthanized. At that time, he made a pledge.

“I felt joy [that] I could save two dogs, so I wanted to raise money for animal shelters because I love animals and want the best for them,” said Van Meer.
