COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI)- Clifford the Big Red Dog got a huge birthday celebration this morning from elementary students at Heritage Academy.
Students took pictures with Clifford. The big red dog also passed out treats to the kids and gave them a few hugs.
Heritage Academy is honoring the 50th Birthday of Clifford during National Library Week.
Students also donated items and supplies to the Columbus-Lowndes Humane Society.
“It’s just so special to see the kids really participate in something like this and all the teachers and we’re so glad to be partnered with the humane society so that we can help them also. We want to instill in our kids at a very young age what it is to give and give back,” said Principal Cindy Wamble.
All proceeds and donations will go to the humane society’s new facility.
