A six-year-old aspiring veterinarian has raised about $800 for a stray kitten that needs surgery for a spinal deformity.

Hawaii News Now reports that Kaitlin Miyashiro raised the $800 in less than three weeks by selling snack bags door-to-door, in offices and in bowling alleys.

She is also working with 808 Animal Rescue to raise money on Indiegogo.

Kaitlin hopes to reach $1,000, enough to pay for stray kitten Hope’s surgery. The spinal deformity is causing Hope to be unable to use her hind legs or her litterbox.

The girl became interested in animal rescue two years ago, when her puppy died three days after she unknowingly bought it from a puppy mill.

Now she plans to become a veterinarian and own an animal shelter one day.
