A 14-year-old girl has raised $14,000 for senior dogs who have been left behind with the goal of helping them find a forever home like she did when she was adopted.

(CNN)A 14-year-old girl has raised $14,000 for senior dogs who have been left behind with the goal of helping them find a forever home like she did when she was adopted.

When she came to the United States, almost every weekend included a trip to the Humane Society or to Muttville Senior Dog Rescue.

Muttville is a cage-free dog rescue that gives senior dogs a "second chance at life," according to their website.

The organization rescues about 1,000 dogs per year and runs mostly with the help of volunteers.

Meena first heard of the rescue from a neighbor whose dog had been adopted from Muttville.

The neighbor shared stories of how senior dogs are often left behind in shelters.

"More people should adopt senior dogs," says Meena.

"They give you the same unconditional love as any other dog. "

Meena understood what it felt like to be left behind, and wanted to help the senior dogs find the loving homes they deserve, just like she did.

The problem was, Meena had to be 17-years-old to volunteer at Muttville, and she was only 12.

Meena began pet sitting in her own home for her neighbors and school friends with the goal of supporting Muttville.

With rates of $35 per day and several years of hard work, Meena has managed to raise $7,000 for Muttville.

Meena plans to continue working with Muttville and hopes that more people will adopt older mutts from shelters during this pandemic.
