A "cradle-to-Youth" member of St. Paul's is earning her Girl Scout Silver Award by helping animals through Sugar Land Animal Services. She will be on the Plaza Sunday, September 25, to collect food and toys for animal services and to provide information about the importance of spaying and neutering pets.
Items that can always be used by Animal Services:
- Purina tidy Cats Non-clumping Cat Litter in the gold and red bag
- Kong toys
- Fleece type toys (need to be able to be washed in the washing machine)
- Hard plastic or rubber dog toys
- Old used soccer balls and leather type footballs
- Nylabones (all sizes and/or flavors)
- Dog biscuits (all shapes, sizes, and flavors)
- Fleece blankets (smaller sizes for cats, larger for dogs) and towels
- Canned food for dogs, cats, and kittens (all sizes and flavors)
- Kitten and cat treats (all flavors)
- Cat and kitten toys (all types -- they love the feather wands and the ones that can be tied onto their cages)
Please, no dry food. Thank you.
Items collected that can not be used by Animal Services will go to Second Mile Mission for their pet food bank, the SPCA, Goodwill, or the Wildlife Center at the SPCA.
The Silver Award is the highest award a Cadette (6th-8th-grade) Girl Scout can earn. A student in the Lamar Consolidated ISD, she is in Girl Scout troop 21369 led by St. Paul's member Susie Vanlandingham with girls from several schools in the Houston area.
