“Dear Petco pets,
I'm Serenity. I'm 8 years old. I live in Washington D.C. I'm going to 2nd grade. May I please have a hamester because I never had a pet. I (love) hamesters because they eat carrots, and grass. I will take good care of it because I'll let it eat. I will make sure I clean the cage. If I (receive) a hamster, I will do better in school, make more friends, and become responsible."
Cornell Reddon, with fellow customer care worker Clay Anderson, called Serenity’s mother to make sure it was OK if he bought the girl a hamster. When she said yes, he went to Petco and bought the animal, WJLA reported.
Serenity was presented with her new pet on Friday, and she decided to name the hamster “Brick.”
Pepco also provided Serenity with a hamster cage and supplies.
