CHICO, Calif. – Students at Little Chico Creek donated $1,500 to the Chico Animal Shelter on Tuesday.

Organizers said the shelter brought in a lot of animals from the Camp Fire and students thought this would be a good cause.

There is no city-funded adopted program, so students held a coin drive in December to raise the money.

Teachers said each day students would drop off coins and even bills into the bucket. The school's original goal was $500 but they tripled that target.

Action News Now spoke to some involved with the donations.

“Our students have really big hearts. They knew about all the animals that were either needing medical care, homeless or lost help," Third-grade teacher at Little Chico Creek, Rebecca Klein said.

Students from all grade levels participated. The Chico Animal Shelter said they’re very grateful for the donation and have never received this large of a donation before.

The money will be put towards health care for animals, neutering, and any kind of needed medical treatment.
