Ten-year-old Benjamin Sutton is taking action to help an abused animal.

The dog named “Justice” that was found in Windsor last month with its paws, muzzle and neck taped is the animal that Benjamin is trying to help with the local youth turning to a craft he learned in school as his fundraising method.

“I’m making snowflakes,” he said.

Ten-year-old Benjamin Sutton is making paper snowflakes and will give them to people in exchange for a donation. He plans on using all donated money to assist the Windsor-Essex County Humane Society and the care they are providing Justice, the dog found taped last month in Windsor.

Benjamin, a Grade 5 student at St. Bernard School, said he plans on donating whatever he collects to the Windsor-Essex County Humane Society where Justice is currently being cared for. He added that once he saw what happened to Justice, he decided he wanted to do something to help the dog.

“Our family likes animals and we have adopted from the humane society before,” explained Benjamin’s mother Debbie. “We thought it would be good to donate to them.”

Benjamin said it takes 15-20 minutes to create a paper snowflake with his mom helping decorate each of them. He has raised $60 so far and are creating snowflakes for whatever a person may wish to donate.

The reasons Benjamin said he likes pets are because they offer unconditional love and he gets to pet the animals in return. He said it is rewarding for him to be able to help out Justice and hopes to visit the dog one day.

If anyone wishes to make a donation in exchange for a snowflake, Debbie said they can inquire through her Facebook account.

Michael Earl Hill, 32, of Amherstburg is presently facing charges of willfully causing unnecessary pain and suffering or injury to an animal.
