SHERMAN, Texas -- Hollis and Slade Prock, along with their grandma, are raising money for a good cause.

All the donations from their lemonade stand at the corner of FM 1417 and Lamberth Road in Sherman are going to animal rescue groups across Texoma, including the Denison Animal Welfare Group, the Durant Animal Rescue Alliance, Durant Cat Rescue and Animal Rescue of Calera.

"We're just trying to raise more and more money for the vets so that way they can get them spayed and neutered,"  Slade said. "It's just sad to watch puppies and kittens roam around on the cities, so we're trying to rescue them, raise money for them."

Linda Arnold, the boys' grandmother, explained that the proceeds help with surgeries for pet owners who can't afford it.

"I foster a lot and help rescue, and so the boys decided and I decided that we should try to work and raise money to help all of the local rescue groups," she said.

They started selling cold drinks at 7 a.m. Wednesday. By afternoon, they'd already raised $300..

Their goal by the end of the week is to collect $400 -- $100 for each rescue group.

"They're pretty much not very different when it comes to humans, and it's just sad to hear those stories about those cats and those dogs that got hurt," Hollis said.

Standing out in the heat selling lemonade and treats, these boys are passionate about taking care of animals.

"There can be worse stuff in the future happening to dogs and cats, but we're raising money so that way it won't get worse... it'll get better," Slade said.

Linda Arnold asked that if you donate directly to any of the targeted rescue groups, just say the "Lemonade Kids" sent you.
