This week, Ben Miller walked into IHS with a large bag full of cash.

"We did a lemonade stand last weekend and we raised $1,150 dollars," said Ben, beaming with pride.

It all started two years ago.

The first time he did a lemonade stand, he raised $200. The second, about $600. Each year the support for Ben's lemonade stand grows bigger and bigger. For his most recent stand, people saw it on social media, heard about it on the radio, and showed up in droves.

And he's so happy to hand all the money he raises over to IHS.

"I wanted to donate money and give the animals supplies and food so they can be happy," Ben told KTVB.

Ben's mom, Amy Miller, says he has always had a heart for animals.

"He has just always loved animals, everything from saving rolly pollies on our walks, to reptiles. He loves dogs, buts cats are his favorite. He would spend every dollar of that money adopting every cat here if I would let him," said Amy.

"I'm so proud of him and his heart, he makes me so happy."
