Thomasville-- An overcrowded south Georgia humane society is getting much-needed help from an unexpected source.   A young child heard about the dozens of animals the shelter takes in each day and wants to help out.  

Seven year-old Chandice Rogers came up with several ideas on how to raise money. She and her mom settled on a bake sale. They'll donate all their proceeds to the humane society.

"I just thought it was a great idea so that's why I want to support her in it and hope at its success so she'll, in the future when she has idea's like this she'll take the initiative and know that she can succeed in what she puts her mind to," said Chandice's mom Katrina Tubbs.

Chandice plans to buy a few toys to take to the animals and give the rest to the shelter. You can stop by her bake sale tomorrow from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the corner of Jefferson and Broad streets in downtown Thomasville.
