Rehoboth Girl Scouts Assist Rehoboth Animal Advocates

Posted by akaMrsBlackwell

Rehoboth Animal Advocates met Rehoboth 7th grade Girl Scout CadetteTroop 247 during the Harvest Block Party last fall. They asked if the girls would be interested in a service project with their work for feral cats. The troop collected a lot of cardboard boxes thanks to their school, D.L. Beckwith Middle School, their parents, and Sturdy Memorial Hospital! The girls broke the boxes down, traced 4 different sized templates, and labeled each accordingly. So far, they've measured and cut out between 225-300 cardboard liners! Those pieces of cardboard will be used as liners on the bottom of the cat traps to protect their paws, as well as used during their recovery, if needed, in the cats' hospital crates after any needed care or procedures. Great work, girls and R.A.A.!

The Rehoboth Animal Advocates have invited the girls to have a Girl Scout Cookie Booth at their next meeting, Saturday, Feb. 11th at 10 A.M. at Rehoboth Council of Aging on Rte. 118, so if you are in the area, please stop by and support their troop by buying, freezing, or even donating some cookies being shipped to our military servicemen and servicewomen! Cookies are still only $4/box in their GSSNE council. A NEW popular flavor this 100th year of selling GS cookies is the Girl Scout S'mores! If you want to hear more about the "Girl Scouts of Rehoboth & Seekonk", their troops are on Facebook with hopes of using social media in positive ways for their community!
