For the last few years on her birthday, 14-year-old Phalon Osborn has requested friends and family donate to the shelter rather than give gifts. “That’s the least we can do,” said Osborn, who has horses, dogs and cats of her own. “The animals don’t have a home, and I really don’t need the presents. The time with my friends and family is more important to me.” Osborn did enjoy an evening of movies, pizza and cake with friends to celebrate her Sept. 27 birthday.
