Meet Xander, a 6-year-old boy who recently had spinal surgery, his 3rd surgery in his life so far. Turns out Xander is a HUGE Oliver Bird fan! After hearing this, Oliver Bird recruited some of his friends at the shelter to help him put together an HSVC care package to send sweet Xander while he recovers.
The swag bag was filled with all sorts of HSVC goodies including HSVC t-shirts, stickers, an animal coloring book, an HSVC piggy bank, and even an HSVC lunchbox filled with Oliver Bird's favorite snacks. Oliver even reached out to our good friend MrsCopyCat, who donated a custom plush Oliver Bird pillow for Xander to cuddle until he is able to visit the shelter! Thank you MrsCopyCat!
"The love and thought that went into the personalization of the gifts, down to the engraved tags on the bag, was so sweet! Xander’s favorite has to be the most snuggly soft OliverBird stuffie that was hand made specially for him! To the Humane Society of Ventura County, thank you for brightening my little ones day, the super thoughtful gifts, and giving Xander something really exciting to look forward too!" said Xander's mom, Corrin.
Oliver Bird and the staff of the HSVC are looking forward to meeting you in person, Xander! Get well soon
