Put Your Paws Up for Girl Scouts Helping Canine Companions in Their Communities

We’re celebrating International Dog Day with endless puppy love from Girl Scouts across the country. These paw-some Highest Award projects are too doggone good not to share!

 Baking the world a better place! Girl Scout Juniors Izzy, Ella, and Mia made and sold homemade dog treats and collected donations for a local animal shelter for their Bronze Award project.


Girl Scout Lily treated her local animal shelter to a dog treat dispenser for her Bronze Award project, including removable containers for cleaning and a planter base with dog-safe flowers.

Troop 21 from North Carolina “nose” what makes dogs happy! For their Bronze Award project, the Girl Scouts built a “scent garden,” which included lemongrass, rosemary, and more for local shelter dogs to enjoy.
Inspired by her dog, Cash, Girl Scout Paige created a fun run fundraiser for the rescue where she adopted him for her Silver Award project. She collected enough donations to create 50 adoption bags of supplies to accompany rescue dogs to their fur-ever homes.

Ensuring that Girl Scouts and their dogs are prepared for anything, Chloe worked with her troop to pass state legislation to add pet supplies to the 2022 Disaster Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday for her Silver Award.

For her Gold Award project, Marley created educational resources to improve service dog awareness in her community. Her informational sessions provided tips on how to behave around service dogs to make sure they can do their important jobs.

Pet projects aren’t just limited to Bronze, Silver, and Gold Awards. Brownies can join in the fur-filled fun with NEW activities added to the updated Brownie Pets Badge—available now.
