VIDEO: 5-year-old donates savings to Wisconsin K-9 Unit

Wis. (CNN) — A heartwarming story out of Wisconsin, where a 5-year-old girl donated all of her savings to help a police K-9 unit.

Mia Keller went with her mom to buy a raffle ticket at the K-9 fundraiser. But, when she was told the tickets were sold out, she decided to donate her entire savings of $26.

“As far as she’s concerned police heroes, right up there with Batman and Superman, they’re superheroes to her,” said Mia’s mom, Susan.

To thank Mia for her donation, the department invited her to meet the dogs during a training day. She was also sworn in as a Junior Deputy.
