Rapid City girl uses 8th Birthday as wildlife fundraiser

Posted:

8 year old Blossom Stallings Johnson proved today that anyone at any age can make a difference.

At her 8th birthday party on Sunday afternoon, Stallings Johnson requested that guests bring bird seed, cleaning supplies, animal food and other items that can be donated to Canyon Lake Veterinary Hospital's Wildlife Rescue.

Stallings Johnson has helped rescue five birds with Wildlife Rescue's help over the past year, and she's compelled to help the creatures that she finds just plain cute.

"One time I saved a bird and he looked at me like 'chirp, chirp...chirp, chirp.' Once you just see them their cute and so I just like to save them," said Stallings Johnson.

"It feels really good because she's our daughter and because she came up with this. She could have gotten quite a few gifts and she could have gotten some very expensive gifts, but this is what she wanted to, her love for animals is through the roof," said Christine Stallings, Blossom's Mother.

The gifts donated to Wildlife Rescue from Blossom's birthday will reach more than just birds.

Rabbits, squirrels, and kittens will also receive help from her generosity.
