Girl Scouts donate to Paws with a Cause

Local Girl Scouts help Paws with a Cause.

Local Girl Scouts help Paws with a Cause.

The local Girl Scout troop 4482 recently had a visit from Paws with a Cause.

They met Casey, a golden retriever, and Casey’s trainer, Sandee, talked to the girls about the program and all the benefits of the program for those who are in need of a Paws Dog. The girls asked lots of questions and got lots of answers,  including how much it costs to raise a Paws dog—$30,000!

N-Girl-Scouts-with-dogAt the end of all the questions, Casey was happy to let the girls pet him. Then the troop presented a check to Casey and Sandee, donating a percentage of their hard earned cookie money to Paws with a Cause.
