BEND, OR --  A 13-year-old Bend girl won nearly $1400 to help care for dogs belonging to the homeless. Alice McKnight is a seventh grader with a heart for helping others. She tells KBND News, “Whenever I see people who are homeless and they have dogs I always wonder how they feed their dogs. I wanted to find a way for homeless people to be able to take care of their dogs.”

 

Alice took her Canine Care Kit idea to Pitch Night at Awesome Bend, a group that provides small grants to help make Bend more livable. Her pitch was deemed the best of the night and she was awarded $1,397 to get her idea off the ground. 
 
She has begun ordering items to assemble the Canine Care Kits, “There’s some food, some treats, a collapsible water dish, a foam sleeping pad a and a kennel lead.” The water bowls are donated by RuffWear
 
Alice will distribute the Canine Care Kits for free at “Keep Them Warm” events each Sunday at the Bend Senior Center.
