Amazing Girl Scouts: Caroling for Animal Shelter Donations

Wonderful NJ Girl Scouts Carol for the Animal Shelter

 

So busy during the Holidays… buying presents, going to parties, worrying about what to wear, hoping for special gifts, a little nagging worry in the back of the mind about parents and money.  Look what a troupe of wonderful Girl Scouts in New Jersey did… they took time from their busy lives to carol for donations to the local Animal Shelter!  

On Monday, a note in all mailboxes (perhaps they targeted dog loving homes?) on the proposed caroling route announced the Friday night event.  The shelters need: 

* food of all kinds (half opened bags are OK)

* used blankets, quilts and towels (clean please)

* pet toys (used-but- not-abused are OK)

* pet comfort products (paw cream, sweaters)                                                     

The girls showed up on time, sang “Jingle Bells” and “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer”, took pictures with Raja, hugged all around and then whisked our bag of fleece throws and greenies into their following mini-van.   They next day, they dropped it all off and played with the shelter dogs. 

Aren’t they flat out wonderful?! 

So back to the list… technically these items can end up in the local shelter even if your local girl scouts have targeted other charities this season.  Just load them up and tote them over.  OK… please?  You know you’ll feel warm and fuzzy immediately after.

To keep you in the know about Raja’s Travel Dog Schedule: Raja will be spending the Holidays at home en famille and shortly thereafter he will go on his annual ski trip.  Where will he go to ski? For every blog fan who posts in a guess this week, we will donate one can of primo Blue Buffalo dog food to our local shelter.  Paw to heart, we promise.
