Boy donates to police dog for birthday

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - A six-year-old boy from Allentown is doing something extra special for his birthday.

Carsen Kunkle didn't want presents.

Instead he wanted to help someone or something.

So he asked his family and friends to donate money to an organization called Hounds on Working Leashes.

It raises money for police dogs.

Carson was able to raise $365 for Judge, a K-9 officer with the Allentown Police Department.

And Thursday both Judge and his handler stopped by Carsen's school to show students where that money was going.

"His birthday was coming up and he didn't really need anything and he didn't really want any gifts so we came across this charity and I told him about it and he wanted to help so we decided to give back to the community," said Jennifer Onusconich, Carsen's mom.

Carsen's mom says he loves to help people and they plan to raise money for charity for years to come.
