Girl Scouts Advocate for Pets
Governor O'Malley signs new bill into law
Girl Scout Troop 6811 from Sandy Spring, MD, earned their Bronze Award campaigning to reduce the proliferation of puppy mills. Concerned that too many unwanted dogs and cats were being euthanized, they connected with their schools and the Humane Society to distribute posters and the Puppy Friendly Pet Store Pledge. They advocated for pet owner's to take personal responsibility to spay and neuter their pets. Connecting with their schools and local pet stores, The Girl Scouts demonstrated leadership and testified before the Maryland State House on the Breeder licensing bill. The bill was passed and Girl Scout Troop 6811 was at the State House when Governor O'Malley signed the bill into law.
