LANCASTER, Ky. (WTVQ) – The Garrard County animal shelter has partnered with the Girl Scouts of Kentucky to help enrich young lives as well as save animal lives.
The shelter happens to be an all female run establishment and they thought it would be a wonderful idea to show young girls you can make a difference in the community.
“These little girls are learning that they can make a difference, and anybody can make a difference. It doesn’t matter how old you are and it doesn’t matter what you have. You can give of your time, you can give of yourself, you can give of your talents.”
The Garrard County animal shelter says that they have had four hoarding cases this year alone and without adopters coming in and taking home these little animals for their forever home, some of them could end up getting euthanized.
The volunteer run shelter has held over 700 animals since last year and has been at full capacity for many months.
Puppy season has begun and the shelter is in desperate need of donations, supplies and homes for the animals.
“When you come here you are adopting and not shopping which means you are saving two lives. You are saving the life that is here and you are making room for one more.”
Girl Scouts will be at the shelter every Saturday thru the month of March volunteering and of course selling cookies.
