Girl Scout Daisy Troop 50847, out of Harrison, paid a visit to the Clare County Animal Shelter on March 25, 2015. The girls arrived with plenty of items that would put a smile on any animal’s face! The girls prepared last week by making dog toys, cat nip pillows and cat kickers. Each Girl Scout learned the value of hard work when they were able to present their handmade items, made from recycled goods, to the animal shelter. The Girl Scouts collected liquid laundry detergent, peanut butter, dog‑ cat‑and kitten‑ food. The troop generously donated kitten food and scoopable cat litter as well.
The Daisy troop completed an educational journey titled, “5 Flowers, 4 Stories, 3 Cheers for Animals” which focused on learning to care for animals and themselves, to use their new knowledge and creativity to teach others how to care for animals and lastly, gaining courage and confidence in teaching others about animal care. Their visit to the Clare County Animal Shelter was the finale for them!
