Every year, approximately 7.6 million dogs and cats enter animal shelters nationwide. Living in a shelter can be stressful for animals, especially for those who stay for two weeks or longer.
In an effort to earn their Pet badge and Animal Journey, Daisy and Brownie Troop 2152 decided to donate pet supplies to Arizona Animal Welfare League and SPCA so that animals can stay healthy, happy and comfy as they await for their new home.
This project was extra special because two Girl Scout Cadettes, Marley and Emily from Troops 2639 and 1943, used their leadership skills to support the girls in completing the project. Together, they made over 100 dog and cat toys, 200 dog treats, three fluffy dog beds and three cat scratching towers.
Marley and Emily are setting great examples for their younger Girl Scout sisters as they help the girls make a difference in the community. Simply amazing!
