An 11-year-old girl from Southern California has made it her mission to save homeless animals.

When Emmy Perry was 7 years old, she created an organization to do just that, calling it Emmy's Hope.

"I know what I'm doing is helping," said Emmy, who lives in Dana Point. "I saw so many dogs in need of help and homes."

Emmy's mother, Elaine, said that from a very early age, her daughter has proclaimed her love of animals to anyone who would listen.

"After Santa said, 'What would you like for Christmas?' she said, 'I want to save more dogs,'" Elaine Perry said.
