A sweet little girl is giving back to her community.

Janiya wowed the judges in her local beauty pageant, winning the competition.

However, instead of keeping the prize money to herself, animal-lover Janiya decided to donate a portion of the winnings to her local shelter.

The Human Association of Warren County shared the news of her generous donation in a heartwarming Facebook post last month.

"Thank you to Janiya for stopping into the shelter today to see us today. Janiya won a pageant and gave us a donation with her winnings!" the post read. The shelter then thanked the little beauty queen, saying: "Thank you again!"

They wrapped up the social media post by encouraging people to come and visit their animals. "If you want to stop in and see us or our wonderful pets we are open 11am-5pm today. See you all soon," the shelter wrote.

As well as the sweet caption describing Janiya's generous contribution, the post also included a snap from her visit. In the picture, the young pageant winner can be seen dressed up in a pink and blue tutu. She even has on her beauty queen tiara as she beams at the camera.

On their website, The Humane Association of Warren County Animal Shelter and Adoption Center describes how they have served the local area for 46 years.

"During those 46 years, we have provided a safe haven and loving care for tens of thousands of homeless dogs and cats, giving them a second chance for new and happy lives. In addition, we have reunited thousands of lost pets with their beloved owners," the website reads.

It goes on to say that: "Since our founding in 1973, our ultimate goal has been to find loving, life-long homes for every adoptable pet left in our care. At the same time, we have been successful in dramatically reducing the alarming number of unwanted dogs and cats in Warren County through our progressive, long-established spay/neuter initiatives."

They also explain that they depend on donations to keep doing the work they do, saying: "We operate the only animal shelter and adoption center in Warren County and as a non-profit, animal welfare organization, depend on tax-deductible donations to support our annual budget."
