California Girl Scouts Bring Comfort to an Animal Shelter

In California, The Orange County Register reports that thirteen Girl Scouts from Cadette Troop 2154 toured the Orange County Animal Care facilities recently and delivered dog jackets and baked treats they made, all in the hopes of making the lives of homeless animals a little bit easier. The girls also raised more than $300 to rescue a dog and also helped socialize other dogs at PetSmart recently.

"My goal is to help the girls develop the skills to look out in the world and find needs and figure out how to help," said parent leader Kathryn Thompson. "When they become women, they will be able to contribute to society in a way that wouldn't have occurred to them until later in life."

Their tour covered the variety of animals that end up there and the finances of running the large shelter.
