Morro Bay High School student Nate Potter used his Los Osos 4-H project to help dogs at the San Luis Obispo County Animal Services shelter.

Nate contacted shelter supervisor Andrea Liddie and discussed ideas that led to Nate hosting fundraisers to raise money for the shelter to purchase much-needed dog beds.

To date, Nate has raised more than $1,600 and purchased 16 new dog beds.
