"More than 33,000 adoptable dogs and cats are euthanized every year in the tri-state area alone simply because there are not enough homes for all of them."
We scheduled a tour of The League for Animal Welfare. Our troop voted to donate a portion of our cookie sale profits to this organization. Our monetary donation would be used to purchase leashes, food, treats, and toys for the dogs and cats who live at the shelter while they are waiting for a loving family to adopt them. The girls asked for a troop puppy that could live at my house. It was so hard to say no--to the girls and to these adorable puppies.
During our visit, the girls learned how to be responsible pet owners. They also learned some valuable ways to stay safe around animals they do not know. This was a great lesson in being FRIENDLY and HELPFUL. The girls earned the yellow petal for their Daisy apron. Thank you for reading!
